The Cotswolds are justifiably one of Britain's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The Pantiles and Dovecote Barn are a perfect base from which to explore them -  local walks (and we can recommend dozens from Sunday strolls to all day epics...), traditional and modern sporting events, antique shops galore, great food and brilliant beer (and wine) and much more. 

The  famous National Arboretum, 1 mile away at Westonbirt, is beautiful all year round not just in autumn.
Doughton is only 2 miles from Tetbury, an unspoilt and very pretty small market town which is really buzzing on a Saturday. Cirencester - the capital of the Cotswolds and famous for being the centre of Roman Britain is only 11 miles away. and Ancient Malmesbury, 5 miles away, is not to be missed.
