Best Hotels in Tetbury

Tetbury Hotels

Tetbury is a small parish town set in the endless green hills of Gloucestershire’s Cotswold district. Tetbury’s history spans back to the Middle Ages, and traces of its remarkable heritage can be found in the town’s diverse architecture and the enthralling sights speckled throughout its surrounding countryside. Tetbury boasts old-fashioned antique stores, independent boutiques, and outdoor markets. The town’s quaint local charm, coupled with its tranquil cobbled streets and authentic village vibe, makes for an utterly relaxing urban holiday.

Things to see

Start your rejuvenating morning by visiting Tetbury’s diverse architectural wonders. Begin at the Gothic-revival church of St Mary, a large parish church where the domineering spiked spire towers over the tree-stippled green grounds bellow. After, visit the yellow-washed Market Hall, a grand 17th century building with an enormous clock set upon its flower-laced facade. Inside, antique markets are still regularly held. Amble down the Chipping Steps - a set of sloping Medieval stairs that align old-world thatched cottages and overgrown meadows - to Cirencester Road. From there, catch a bus - or take a short 15 minute drive - to Westonbirt Arboretum. This vast arboretum offers well-maintained walking trails through one of the finest tree collections in Europe. Immerse yourself in the bright red leaves of acer trees, cool off in the deep shade of mighty pines, or take the kids along to Westonbirt’s many educational and entertaining activities.

Hotels in Tetbury

Central hotels in Tetbury present pleasantly affordable 3-star accommodation. The exceptionally attentive service creates a refined and relaxed atmosphere, and the Georgian stone-wall exteriors and understated, elegant interiors provide an other-worldly environment. For a taste of resplendent luxury, stay slightly further afield and discover huge country manors and lodges, boasting vast gardens, spacious in-house restaurants and enormous rooms complete with king-size beds and pristine spa-style en-suites. If travelling on a budget, stay in one of the nearby camping grounds, where the endless green space and refreshing outdoors make for an adventurous family holiday.

Where to stay

Tetbury’s small, quaint size means that staying anywhere within the town puts you in the heart of its friendly atmosphere, where half-timbered houses adjoin miniature Romanesque colonnades, and vine-covered cottages house artisan antique stores. Stay south east of Tetbury - deep in the verdant meadow-laden Cotswolds - for immediate access to the luxuriant Westonbirt Arboretum, where the dense forests and soft grassy hills create a paradisal landscape. If you love a historic setting, but crave a touch more urban excitement, stay in nearby Stroud - a larger town that proffers from a rich market history, fine restaurants and dozens of traditional taverns.

How to get to Tetbury

While Tetbury is easily accessible by car, the sleepy town is untarnished by the busy noise of motorways. If driving from the east or west, take the speedy M4 motorway, and exit north at the A433, for a delightful drive through the countryside to Tetbury’s centre. If driving from the north or south, take the A315 east off of the M5. The closest railway station is nearby Kemble, which provides regular direct services to Swindon and Cirencester. From Kemble, a local bus service will take you the short distance to Tetbury. Once there, explore the pedestrian-friendly streets by foot or bicycle.
