Cotswold-Homes.com, now an on-line property and lifestyle magazine designed exclusively for the North Cotswolds, was established 10 years ago by local residential sales experts HARRISON & HARDIE. We regularly attract many thousands of visitors, both locally and from all over the world, who want to discover more about what it is like to live in this beautiful part of England. We now showcase the area including information about Cotswold Villages and Towns and Cotswold Attractions.
If you are planning to live here you can research a wide range of properties to rent or purchase and helpful information about what is on offer locally, from schools and clubs to facilities and amenities. We focus on local, independent businesses who service the North Cotswolds, providing everything you might need from accountants and interior designers to landscapers and window cleaners. The Village Notice Board can help you plan your social calendar, from knowing when to attend a parish council meeting or how to get involved in your local amateur theatre production.
If you are Visiting The Cotswolds, you will find useful information about our Cotswold Villages and Towns, including places to go, where to stay and eat, what to do and see when visiting the Cotswolds, with Cotswold Attractions from fetes and open-air opera to farmers' markets and fun days.
We positively encourage contributions about Living in or Visiting the Cotswolds - photographs, advertorial, interesting reviews or information about forthcoming events - to continue to add value and interest. The website is an ongoing work-in-progress, intended to evolve and grow organically, to be used by the local community to keep in touch and to share information as well as to promote our Cotswold Villages and Towns to visitors. If you have something you would like to be included, perhaps to recommend a good walk, to rave about your local pub or to share your photos of a recent event, then click on Contributions.
Cotswold-Homes.com is not just about Visiting the Cotswolds - it is designed to support the local community; if you are a non-profit organisation such as a school, club or church, you can use the Village Notice Board free of charge (at our discretion) to raise awareness about forthcoming fund-raising events in our Cotswold Villages and Towns, for example. Contact Beth by clicking Contributions for further details.
Our aim is to promote our Cotswold Villages and Towns by supporting and promoting independent local businesses and Cotswolds Attractions, from sole traders and crafts people to nurseries, well-known shops and luxury hotels, providing a cost-effective and easily accessible way to reach customers most likely to need your products and services. Whether launching a one-off event on the Village Notice Board or choosing to advertise in multiple sections of the site on a regular basis, Cotswold-Homes.com is a valuable marketing tool, currently attracting around 1 million hits a month, with countries as far afield as Spain to Sri Lanka and North America to New Zealand logging on each week.
