Wotton-under-Edge is a charming country Town, tucked away under the Southern edge of the Cotswolds, equidistant from Gloucester and Bristol, Cheltenham, Cirencester and Bath, only a few miles from the M4 (Junction 18) and M5 (Junction 14).

For those enjoying a slower mode of transport, the Cotswold Way National Trail passes through the town, along the main shopping streets which are packed with small family run shops selling an amazing range of goods. The town also offers a wide range of services and places to eat.

Wotton is a hospitable, thriving and lively place, with interesting and historic buildings. Many visitors fall in love with this ancient town, which still embodies many of the features of small town life which have disappeared in bigger places. Life has a gentler pace - explore for yourself , through our guide and then, perhaps, in person - but, be warned, you may find you do not want to leave!
