Living the Cotswold Dream
Pretty gift shops and boutiques and fantastic pottery workshops are all typical of Cotswold market towns. Cotswold market towns have strong working communities, giving a wonderful atmosphere to every high street. Most towns have weekly markets and regular farmers markets where locals and visitors can buy fresh produce. The market squares are overlooked by shops, restaurants and cafes and off the square, narrow streets line the town where you will discover more places to shop. Charming Cotswold villages are nestled between hills and woodland, often with a small village shop and a local pub serving good food. Rivers and country lanes connect villages, laced between fields and open countryside. Discover 16th century cottages, magnificent stately homes, converted wool mills and some of the most beautiful buildings in England.
