Out & About - Local Attractions

Southlands is the ideal place to stay for you to explore the beautiful Cotswolds, which is now an area of outstanding beauty.


The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful areas of England, known and loved by people across the world. An area of warmth and clarity, where stone walls and buildings, open skies, rolling grasslands, beech woods and captivating villages, makes it an outstanding English landscape — a landscape once experienced, never forgotten.


Up on the hills, or down in the valleys of the Cotswolds, you will discover the quaintest of country pubs, inns and restaurants. You will also find an abundance of attractions and activities to suit all ages, from windsurfing to fishing, from horse riding to paragliding - it’s all here in the Cotswold.  Here are a few of them
