Beautiful Cotswolds

Beautiful Cotswolds

Anyone in search of the true English countryside need look no further than the Cotswolds. It is one of Britain’s most beautiful areas, characterised by the local golden stone, which gives the towns and villages, nestling snugly amongst the hills, a unique warmth and richness. Here there are sleepy villages, flower bedecked cottages and imposing manor houses, bustling market towns and breath-taking countryside just waiting to be explored.
