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 Warwick was originally founded in 914 AD along the banks of the beautiful River Avon and is within easy reach of nearby Coventry and Leamington Spa. Warwick affords the visitor the opportunity to discover the wonders of the town’s mediaeval architecture with a variety of historic buildings contained within a small area of town. The Towns greatest attraction is undoubtedly Warwick Castle, one of the country’s most complete and dramatic medieval castles which has been occupied since the Middle Ages, and until recently was the ancestral home of the Earl of Warwick. The town is well known for its variety of excellent restaurants, cafes and beautiful parks and gardens; the Market Square entertains numerous events throughout the seasons and is the location of the “Charter Market”.
