We love our home in the Cotswolds, but what makes it the ideal location for your picturesque proposal? It goes without saying really, but one big reason to propose in the Cotswolds is the exceptional scenery. Surrounded by rolling English countryside and the archetypal Cotswolds stone cottages, you can’t help but feel like you have stepped right into a fairy tale.

The Cotswolds are famous for having some of the most idyllic villages you will ever find. Such as Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burton-on-the-water and of course Bibury, one of the most photographed villages in the whole of England.

These Cotswold villages offer charming and quaint characteristics such as the quintessential Cotswold stone buildings along with fabulous places to eat and drink and an abundance of rural Cotswold walks and activities. There are so many locations to choose from and with the help of your proposal planning experts, we can help you find one that’s ideal for you and your partner. Making the Cotswolds one of the best places to visit, better yet, plan a surprise proposal.

The gardens are incredible whether you are into the stately order of a grand country house garden or the romantic beauty of a Victorian walled garden. The Cotswolds has a wealth of outdoor spots to fall in love with. The Cotswolds look beautiful year-round, but spring and summer bring all the venue gardens into full-bloom and make for especially beautiful photographs.

There is no better way to discover the real Cotswolds than on foot. The Cotswold Way runs for 102 miles through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering all aspects of the famous landscapes.
