The Beauty of the Cotswolds
The Cotswold countryside is famous for its gentle rolling hills, wild woodlands and many beautiful rivers that run through it. The area of the North Cotswolds is a particularly breath-taking part of the area, with many charming market towns, quaint villages and tiny hamlets that reside amongst the Cotswold hills and rivers. The Cotswolds have been named as the second largest area of outstanding natural beauty in England and it’s no surprise that the region has thousands of visitors every year. Those staying in London can visit the Cotswolds on an easy daytrip to get a real sense of English countryside at its best. It’s true that no matter what time of year you come, the Cotswolds always look breath-taking. In autumn, there’s an array of colours amongst the trees and shrubs, in spring you will come across banks full of daffodils and lambs on the hills. In the winter, the Cotswolds is still beautiful with smoking chimneys from thatched cottages, snowy views and frosty crisp mornings in the sunshine. Summer in the Cotswolds is idyllic and peaceful with an air of calm as walkers explore the hills and families picnic by the rivers.
