The Cotswolds region
A farmer will define the Cotswolds as an area of gently sloping hills good for arable and sheep farming, a geologist would enthuse over our oolitic limestone and an estate agent will name it as one of the most 'affluent' and 'desirable' addresses in Britain. The area is also designated as England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). If you've visited before or if you're planning a visit for the first time, remember that the Cotswolds occupy an area larger than just a few villages (100 miles north to south).
Here in the South the area has a slightly wilder nature, especially in the beautiful five valleys around Stroud.
The five valleys meet at the town of Stroud - and the hills are plateaus between the valleys, epsecially the wide, lofty heights of Rodborough and Minchinhampton Commons - can make you feel as if you are in a strange new world. With magnificent views... this really is escapism!
Together with Selsley Common, these stretches of common land provide an ideal open space for walking, horse-riding, kite and model plane flying, or simply relaxing while listening to the soaring song of the skylark.
The historic wool town of Painswick, known as ‘The Queen of the Cotswolds’, is one of the finest and best-preserved Cotswolds settlements, nestling quietly in the hills and surrounded by some of Gloucestershire’s most delightful countryside.
Built of mellow Cotswold stone from the local quarry on Painswick Beacon, the town’s many beautiful buildings can be seen as you wander around its quaint and narrow streets.
New Street, constructed around 1428, contains the oldest building in England to house a Post Office, the country’s oldest bowling green, houses with magnificent Georgian frontages and the famous parish church of St. Mary sitting amongst 99 yew trees in one of the most memorable churchyards in the country.
Award winning hotels, inns, pubs and tea rooms, with specialist craft shops and those selling unusual goods from around the globe, antiques and collectables are all situated in the centre of the village.
The world famous Rococo Gardens and the picturesque villages of Sheepscombe, Edge and Slad are all within a mile or so of the centre, and this fascinating and beautiful area offers marvellous walking country for those wishing to discover the Cotswolds on a more personal level.
Just a short drive away is the spa town of Bath, The Slimbridge Wetlands Centre, Shopping in Cheltenham and the world famous Cheltenham Racecourse, The Forest of Dean, The SS. Great Britain at Bristol and the North cotswolds towns and villages of Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

"I would stay here again."
A beautiful area. The country pubs, Black Horse Inn and the Butcher's Arms were a highlight. WiFi is available at the McDonald's in Stroud. Easy access to London via train from Stroud. Carolyn was very helpful and the neighbors were very friendly. The home was small but just right for two people or a small family.
