About this location
The Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds area is a range of gently rolling hills in England, and the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. Just west of London (90 minutes by rail or car), the Cotswolds is an easily accessible area around 100 miles (160km) north to south.
The Cotswolds are situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with thousands of miles of footpaths and bridleways, a walker's paradise. Walk through rolling countryside dotted with picturesque villages full of history and follow winding river valleys with some great views.
'Cotswolds' is a combination of two very old English words. Everyone's pretty much agreed that Wolds are gentle hills. And most people agree that 'Cots' are sheep enclosures. So 'Cotswolds' probably just means an area of gentle hills with plenty of sheep around.
The Cotswolds hills are criss-crossed with dry stone walls. The picturesque Cotswold landscape is completed with hidden river valleys and distinctive market towns and villages made of the famous Cotswold stone. Many Cotswold villages have enigmatic names such as The Slaughters, Stow-on-the-Wold, The Oddingtons, Ampney Crucis and Guiting Power.
Centuries ago the Cotswolds was made wealthy by the wool trade, and the results of that wealth can be seen in the many fine manor houses and churches throughout the area.
The county is rich in Neolithic remains with about 80 long barrows of the Cotswold-Severn type. Belas Knap is one of the largest, while you can actually crawl inside the fine example of Hetty Pegler's Tump. There are also a number of causewayed camps dating from this period with a well-researched example at Crickley Hill. The Bronze Age is represented by the remains of some 400 round barrows concentrated on the Cotswold.
This area is also home to the majority of Iron Age hill forts identified in Gloucestershire, many in strong positions on the Cotswold scarp. Leckhampton Hill has a fine accessible example from this period. Near Barrow Wake was found the superb brooch and mirror from the Birdlip grave group, now displayed in Gloucester City Museum.
Two main Roman roads, Ermin Street and the Fosse Way, crossed Gloucestershire and many miles are still in use today. Gloucester and Cirencester were the first Roman administrative centres in the county and this is still reflected in their present day street plans. Substantial Roman settlements existed at a number of places including Dymock, Dorn and Bourton-on-the-Water. Chedworth has the county's best-known example of a luxurious villa and the lesser-known Great Witcombe villa is in an equally delightful situation. The Corinium Museum at Cirencester has one of the finest collections of Roman antiquities in Britain.
The Cotswold area is well loved as the ideal place to escape for a few days. Cotswold summer days are relaxed and long, but log fires in winter, spring bluebells or autumn colours are all good reasons why visitors come to the Cotswolds at any time of year.
A few miles away is Daylesford Organic - providing a fantastic choice of award wining foods. Handmade cheese, bread, pastries, chef's dishes and seasonal kitchen garden produce.
In Filkins, you can find Cotswold Woollen Weavers producing traditional tweeds, selling suits, jackets and hats. There is a garden with cafe here too.
Do you have an interest in Antiques? The Cotswolds has plenty of curio shops. The best dealers are in Burford and Stow on the Wold. In Cirencester, see tradtional crafts such as glass blowing, pottery and saddle making.
The Cotswolds today offers wonderful gardens to visit, many sporting and arts festivals, historic and friendly country pubs for lunch, antique shops to visit and plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and other outdoor activities.
Cheltenham, Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon - all nearby - offer further opportunities for shopping and cultural activities and make this an excellent touring base. It's a place to stay, not to rush through.
Lakes by Yoo
Today, Lechlade is popular with leisure traffic on the river, overseen by the Neptune-like statue of Old Father Thames at St John's Lock. The River Thames begins its working life here, becoming navigable and leading to London. The market town is focused around a market place and the Church of Sts Lawrence, whose spire is a landmark across the meadows.
Nearby Benson's Farm produces delicious pies, ready made dishes, cakes and puddings - these can be delivered to your door along with locally produced organic apple juice.
Fish lovers can enjoy trout and smoked fish products from nearby Northleach where the Coln Valley Smokery uses traditional and bespoke brick kiln methods.
Cheese loves can ben the Cerney Pyramid goat's milk cheese and Simon Weaver's Cotswold Blue.
There are a number of local pubs within walking distance. The Swan at Southrop is the nearest. There is a local brew worth looking out for - Cotswold Premium Lager is sold to a select number of establishments and must be tried before you leave!
Nearby Buscot House can be visited along a towpath walk from Lechlade. Also nearby, Kelmscott Manor was William Morris's summer home for 25 years.
