Cotswolds, United Kingdom

Photo of Cotswolds, United Kingdom

A Cotswolds postcard: lush green and rolling hills sprinkled with sheep and the larger dots of thatched cottages and stone mansions wedged between pastures. The heart of England is all old English charm and looks, in the flesh, as immaculate and pristine as it would on a postcard.

Picturesque towns like Bath and Cheltenham support hundreds of tourists daily in season, and only minimally less in the off season, so escape to the hills of the Cotswolds and find a path less travelled. Stroll though towns of only a few stores and no streetlights, and breathe in the country air while passing by sparsely scattered houses with horses and sheep grazing in the front yard. Find a pub for lunch and order bangers and mash with a pint of beer and join the local conversation, or have a discrete eavesdrop into country life.
