• Watch some nostalgic old videos of the Cotswolds

We’ve gathered some beautiful old archive footage of the Cotswolds in times gone by. From the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1940 to the making of the model village in Bourton-on-the-Water in the 30s, these videos are equal parts fascinating and nostalgic.

Check out some beautiful Cotswold cottages

These 30 cottages in the Cotswolds are beautiful examples of the traditional, honey-coloured homes that are ubiquitous in the Cotswolds.
