The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds covers a huge area - almost 800 square miles - and runs through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire). 

One of the delights of visiting the Cotswolds is exploring the different areas, 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, explore beautiful places such as Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold with a Blue Badge Guide.


Bourton-on-the Water is regularly voted one of England’s prettiest villages and is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ because of the attractive bridges that cross the gently flowing River Windrush, which runs through the centre of the village. Stow-on-the-Wold is a beautiful market town and is the highest of the Cotswolds towns – it stands at 800 feet above sea level.
