I’ve just been working through a number of images from our last trip to England. We enjoyed a week of time pottering around the Cotswolds area of South West England.
The Cotswolds covers a huge area – almost 800 square miles – and runs through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire). Each area has its own identity, yet they meld together with their Cotswold features: golden stone and rolling hills – the ‘Wolds’.
The villages here have quaint names such as Bourton on Water, Chipping Campden, Lower Slaughter and Stow on the Wold.
They are gorgeous villages of honey-coloured stone and are intermingled with lively market towns. The landscape of rolling hills in this area is is beautiful, even if the roads are often narrow lanes with grass growing in between the wheel ruts.
You can see my collection of photos from this area here.
