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.
Stow-on-the Wold is situated in the north-east corner of the county of Gloucester amongst the beautiful Cotswold Hills and sits on an exposed 700 feet high hill top alongside the famous “Roman Fosse Way”! A settlement has survived here since the Iron Age. Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the most well-known of the smaller Cotswold Market towns with many of its 16th century buildings constructed out of the distinctive buff coloured Cotswold stone. The large Market Square is testament to the former importance of the Cotswold wool industry when huge fairs where held and over 20,000 sheep were sold. What’s to see and do? Many things! Including excellent Art galleries, Gift and Craft Shops, Splendid Antique shops, grand stone manor houses and beautiful gardens, picturesque cottages and rolling countryside to enjoy the many walks that surround the town.
