Note to editors:

The North Cotswolds
The North Cotswolds is a hidden corner of this delightful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Stretching into the southern farmland of Warwickshire and Worcestershire, it has a character of its own and offers some increasingly rare property refurbishment and investment opportunities.

The towns of Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are both cultural centres offering history, shopping and entertainment.  For sports fans, both towns have horse racing courses, there’s cricket at Edgbaston and Worcester, and rugby at Gloucester and Worcester.  Particularly noted for the growing of asparagus, this horticultural oasis offers ‘foodies’ the freshest of English veg right on their doorstep.  And with the beautiful gardens at Hidcote (National Trust) and Kiftsgate, breath-taking views from Broadway Tower and the adventure playground at Ragley Hall, there’s plenty for the family, while international flights from Birmingham Airport are an easy drive away.
