The Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding natural beauty with beautifully preserved natural honey stone houses in villages nestling in rolling countryside.A photographers paradise. Over many years, the area has had very strict rules about buildings being built or repaired, keeping to a strict code so as not to spoil this beautifully unspoilt area of England. Farms and woods compliment the villages making the area a must visit destination.
We have four definite seasons which makes repeat visits even more special.Imagine a quaint stone cottage with spring flowers in a small garden, the sun is shining and the birds are singing and building their nests and you can hear nature because it is so quiet and peaceful. Imagine going to a small local pub and perhaps having a delicious home cooked meal and some local beer. Come back again in the autumn and see the same area with completely different colours.
We have an extremely good network of foot paths where you can get right into the heart of the countryside and see wildlife, fauna and flora and hear very little in the way of mechanical noise. Long distance paths are also a great attraction as well as small town walks of discovery of historical interest.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It was so lovely for us to see how easily the children settled into a strange place and a new country. They were so happy with Ben and the chickens and being able to run around safely. You certainly did the Cotswolds proud and hope you have many long lasting memories of our beautiful area. We hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
