Owlpen is in the 'Royal Triangle', set in the heart of the Cotswold Hills. The historic cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Cirencester are all about 20 miles away, with their wealth of cultural and scenic attractions. Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are popular day excursions.
Whether your interest is the famous limestone villages of the Cotswolds, sparkling in honey-coloured stone, and rolling hills, or prehistoric barrows, quiet lanes, antique shops, walking -- from a gentle stroll round the estate trails to a 20-mile trek along the Cotswold Way -- Norman churches, gardens, good food and gastropubs, visiting friends, or more likely a combination of these, the choice is wide and you will barely scratch the surface during your stay.
