Straight to the feedback…

Don’t you find that when you’re trying to decide where to visit, where to stay, or what to eat, the very first thing you do is scroll straight to the reviews?

Here’s a little secret- we’re no different.

To truly understand the Cotswold Collective ethos and whether you want to be a part of it, don’t listen to us; let’s jump straight to the feedback!

I’m discovering so many local businesses that I didn’t know about. And getting a freebie or a discount is a bonus!

The Collective is a fab idea and something that was really missing from around here! There’s plenty of independent small businesses that I’m keen to try out.

Cotswold Collective is a great platform for anyone. It provides fantastic events as well as great offers for people who are looking for deals & new local places to visit, try and shops to buy from. Whilst out and about I often log in to see the map and what participating places are in the area I can check out.

The Cotswold Collective Membership Card gives you the opportunity to champion local, shop the Cotswolds, and receive exclusive benefits, discounts, and perks. But what do our members think of it?

Well, Gabrielle is ‘obsessed with the Collective! [she] loves shopping small and shopping local.

Discovering brands and businesses that you previously may not have known about is really the key to the Cotswold Collective. Let’s face it: In our busy day-to-day lives, we rarely have the time or energy to go exploring, so think of the Cotswold Collective as your secret club, opening doors to new spaces and places.

According to Rachel Jakeman, we’re also a ‘great group of people.’ This point really comes to light when we host events exclusively with our lovely crowd in mind. The Collective’s connectivity and support from our Members have that country village feel—a quintessentially Cotswold affair.

KJ loves the bonus of ‘getting a freebie or a discount’- don’t we all- and Marcia made her ‘money back in the first month.’

We really love how Ewa uses our interactive map to log in and see what participating places are in her area.

In fact, we thought Ewa’s use of the map to ‘shop the Cotswolds’ and experience beautiful new towns was such a great concept. With that in mind, we’ve randomly taken 10 locations and found 10 businesses and 10 perks you can get right now with your Cotswold Collective Card.
