England

A very special, very wonderful place, the Cotswolds covers a huge area – almost 800 square miles – and runs through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire) each with its own identity, yet all with those defining Cotswold features: golden stone and rolling hills, the ‘wolds’.

Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone; take in splendid, lively market towns; visit some of the country’s greatest palaces, castles and country houses.

In spring, never ending fields of wild flowers in typically English landscape of lovely green rolling hills, stone walls, woodland and charming little towns and villages are sights to behold.
