Get away from it all with a hike on the Cotswold Way or take a short stroll to the local village. Join an equestrian trail ride or take a flutter on the racing at the Cheltenham Festival. Go fishing, play golf or rent a cycle. Being active is whatever you want at Asphodel Cottage and all are all available locally.
If getting out is more about exploring historic houses and gardens Rodmarton Manor just a mile away from the cottage whilst William Morris's Kelmscott Manor, Chavenage House, Lydiard Park and Buscot House are all major sights within 30 minutes. Batsford and Westonbirt Arboretums are both near and excellent.
Want an 'Event'? There are literally hundreds but best are the most traditional - why not enjoy cheese-rolling, river football or the pig face day? Locally visit the Tetbury Woolsack Races late May-ish www.tetburywoolsack.co.uk. For a list of the most unusal (and usual) visit: www.cotswolds.info/strange-things
