The Cotswold neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, United States, most likely taking its name from the large shopping center, Cotswold Village Shops, is located at the intersection of Randolph and Sharon Amity Roads. Originally known as Cotswold Mall, it was one of Charlotte's first suburban malls. Cotswold is emerging as one of the more desirable areas for living and shopping with close proximity to Uptown. Many 1950s and 1960s homes are being remodeled and sold. Since his birth in 2013, Moose White has held the honorable designation of "Mayor of Cotswold."

The area is neighbored by Randolph Park, Echo Hills, Grier Heights, Myers Park, Oakhurst, Providence Park, Sherwood Forest, and Wendover/Sedgewood.
