COME TO THE COTSWOLDS - YOU COULD LEARN A THING OR TWO!
Did you know that the ‘Chipping’ in Campden is an ancient word referring to its market? Were you aware that Henry II’s mistress was born and lived in Frampton-on-Severn which also lays claim to having the longest village green in England?
These and other fascinating facts can be found in a new eye-catching Cotswolds visitor guide which has just been launched to wide acclaim and forms the centrepiece of a nationwide campaign to attract more tourists to the region.
The 2010 Visit Cotswolds Visitor Guide, a 72 page glossy brochure, has been produced jointly by Cotswold District Council, Stroud District Council, and Tewkesbury Borough Council, and promotes 50 hotels, over 200 B&B and self catering establishments, 21 businesses, 39 attractions and almost 100 events throughout the year. Highlights include an A-Z of towns and villages, a cultural overview of the region, and Cotswold ‘foodie’ experiences.
Commenting on the launch, Sally Graff, the Cotswold District Council Moreton Area Centre and Tourism manager said: "I am really thrilled with this great new brochure. It’s full of very interesting snippets about the Cotswold area, and contains essential information about the wonderful range of events, activities, accommodation, and fine food that we have to offer. There is something here for all age groups at all times of the year.
"We have arranged for every Visitor Centre in the UK to promote the brochure, and have also ensured that it is featured in a range of national holiday guides boasting a joint circulation of almost 2.5 million readers.
"The guide will also be available to download from the Cotswold, Stroud and Tewkesbury council websites, as well as cotswolds.com and the Japanese Cotswolds website."
Particular attention has been focused on the expanding short break market with an emphasis on the high quality of accommodation in the Cotswolds, and the variety of fun things to do.
Initial reaction to the new campaign has been extremely upbeat and the guide promises to boost tourist numbers across the region.
