“With a wide choice of old stone cottages located in picturesque valleys and villages, it’s no surprise the Cotswolds makes a wonderful destination for those wanting to hide away for a romantic break,” says Sam Butler of Butler Sherborn.

“Noted for their low beamed ceilings, log fires and quaint interiors, a Cotswold cottage creates the perfect warm and cosy spot to while away Valentine’s Day with a loved one,” adds Sam, whose firm has five gems now on the market.

Note to editors:

The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
