The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is a rural area in the South of England that takes in six counties and is home to some of the most postcard-perfect landscapes and houses.

With the 102 mile Cotswold Way at its heart, this is a paradise for walkers or people seeking an outdoor holiday. And for those looking for a more leisurely break? Well, the many country pubs with roaring fires in the winter offer a perfect alternative.

If ever there was a place to get some great Instagram snaps then it would be right here in the Cotswolds. Here are 7 of the best spots…

Cotswolds Instagram Spots

1. Castle Combe Village

You’ll find this little village about five miles from the town of Chippenham. It feels like you’re walking onto the set of an English period drama. Incredibly charming.

2. Stow-on-the-Wold

You’ll find this small settlement in Gloucestershire at the top of an 800 foot town.  As pretty a village as you’ll ever walk through. Look out for some of the unique doors along the streets for the perfect Insta snap.

3. Blenheim Palace

This is the only non-Royal household in England to hold the title of a Palace. You’ll find it in Oxfordshire, which is about as far south as you can go in the Cotswolds region. You can read more about the palace here.

4. The Cotswold Way

A beautifully scenic 102 mile walking route which takes you through fields, small towns and forests. You don’t have to do the whole thing (obviously!) and can just jump in at different points on the route for a short ramble.

5. The Slaughters

The Slaughters is made up of two villages (Upper and Lower) that are built along and around the river. The villages have been inhabited for over 1,000 years and are picture perfect.

Tewkesbury is the perfect place to stop after a long day of walking and exploring the Cotswolds. Step into one of the traditional English pubs for some grub and a cute little photo.

7. Sudeley Castle

The current castle was built in the 15th century, but there was a previous structure here that was built way back in the 12th century. Their gardens are absolutely magnificent, so spare some time to stroll around.
