The Cotswolds are famous for their gentle rolling landscape and beautiful towns and villages which offer so much to the tourist. It is not surprising that Prince Charles and Princess Anne have decided to make their homes in the area (Tetbury and Gatcombe respectively) and that celebrities including Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant, Kate Moss and many others have settled in the area.
Besides the smaller villages which all have their own unique character there are also the larger cities of Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester which provide numerous options for visitors to the area.
The area around Wotton-under-Edge is ideal for those liking country walks and beautiful scenery. North Nibley which is on the Cotswold Way has the Tyndale Monument high on the hill overlooking the village and the Severn Vale. The Monument commemorates William Tyndale who translated the bible from Latin into English and was burned at the stake for his trouble. On a clear day the view from the monument takes in the Welsh coast and the two Severn crossings and it is said that one can see seven counties.
Nearby are Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Berkeley Castle (scene of the murder of Edward II), Westonbirt Arboretum and numerous stately homes and National Trust properties are within a half-hour drive.
An annual music festival takes place in North Nibley and it was also the venue for a steam rally which has now relocated to Berkeley (the place where Edward Jenner developed the vaccine for Smallpox). Berkeley is also the location of Cattle Country Adventure Park which provides hours of fun for all ages.
