The rolling Cotswolds as they are often described are an area of outstanding national beauty (aonb) in England. When most people dream of England in their mind, after London it is most likely a quintessential stone village that comes in to their heads.
A babbling brook, leafy green trees and rows of old fashioned cottages probably also feature in the picture. For the visitor who wants to realise this dream then the Cotswolds is most certainly the place to go. Unspoilt and untouched, villages like Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water are as picture postcard as you can get. One of the best ways to see the Cotswolds is on foot as you get to ‘stand and stare’ as long as you like and interact with your surroundings.
Bicycle is another great option and one that allows you to cover a little more ground that on foot. Whatever your mode of transport stop off at delicious tea rooms, browse craft collections in cosy shops and explore attractions like Broadway Tower and Berkeley Castle. The Cotswolds is a great destination. Check out our infographic to find out more about the area!
