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, Warwickshire and 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 wonderful countryside to explore, some of the towns are ideally located to use has a base are Gloucester, Moreton-in-marsh, Stow on-the-wold, Stroud, Warwick, Chipping Norton, Malvern, Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, Swindon, Worcester and Cheltenham.
Moreton-in-Marsh is a key market town in north eastern Gloucestershire which lies in the northern Cotswold area. Established on the old Roman Fosse way it has been a popular traveller’s town for many centuries with the long-established Worcester to London coaching route passing through the town, this is now replaced by the main rail link to London Paddington Station. Granted its market charter back in 1227 during the following years it quickly developed into a popular market town with its busy Tuesday Markets which still today attracts approximately 200 stalls and many tourists keen to grab a bargain. Many of the 17th and 18th century’s buildings are located along the wide and busy High Street and are constructed in the popular and distinct local stone. There are numerous inns, pubs, tea shops, restaurants, hotels and popular B&B accommodations, holiday cottages and a popular caravan park located on the outskirts of town.
