Welcome To The Cotswolds
The ‘Cotswolds Area’ officially spreads across 790 square miles, settled within the northern part of the southwest region of England and encompassing the six English counties of Wiltshire, Worcestershire, North East Somerset, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Bath and Oxfordshire.
The Cotswolds has officially been named as the UK’s largest “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and has become a favourite location for both the British and tourists from far and wide. There are many reasons why this picturesque area has stood out to ‘want to be visitors’. With the hillsides (otherwise known as ‘wolds’) as a perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday in the stunning countryside, with river valleys, water meadows and the ageless villages constructed from the local golden-coloured limestone. The architecture has certain uniqueness about it that one would struggle to not fall in love with! Quite simply an outstanding destination to experience a bit more of what the UK has to offer, it is so easy to imagine yourself back in the 1700’s as many of the market towns have preserved the look and feel of a bygone era.
The area is full of quaint towns and absolutely wonderful countryside just waiting to be explored, with some of the more popular towns used as a base when touring the Cotswolds. Areas such as Gloucester, Stroud, Warwick, Malvern, Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, Swindon, Worcester and Cheltenham.
The town of Malvern is located in Worcestershire and the surrounding Malvern Hills claim some of the most stunning views in the Midlands, with over 100 miles of criss-cross footpaths and bridleways on offer for both novice and experienced walkers and riders alike. The town was first established by Benedictine monks back in the 11th century when a priory was constructed at the base of the highest peak of the Malvern Hills. The town rapidly grew in the 19th century when the health benefits of its natural spring waters became known, turning Malvern into a popular Spa and tourist destination for those seeking all manner of cures. It is still a very popular destination in its own right with many festivals and on-going events taking place throughout the year, it is also used as a popular base for exploring the many towns and local villages situated nearby. The wonderful Cotswold region is just to the South of the area, making Malvern a must visit destination when in this part of England!
