Self Catering Cotswold Holiday Cottage Accommodation in Malmesbury
Malmesbury is a beautiful hill top town, built in golden Cotswold stone and surrounded by the River Avon. It
sits at the southern entrance to the Cotswolds and makes the perfect location to get away to for a weekend or
longer. Malmesbury is a friendly place, with boutique shops, warm and cosy pubs, delightful cafes and
restaurants, mediaeval architecture, a fine abbey, delightful open gardens and a fascinating history. It is
rightly called the "Queen of Hilltop Towns" being England's oldest borough with a rich history over
1000 years. Set on a hill, circled by the River Avon, the skyline is dominated by the imposing Norman Abbey.
The Market Cross was built at the end of the 15th Century and was, according to a quote of the time "a place
for poor folkes to stand when the rain cometh."
