The Cotswolds covers an area of 800 square miles and runs through five counties. 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’. Quintessentially English villages

of honey-coloured stone, lively market towns, some of the country’s greatest castles and country houses, all play their part in making the Costwolds a must see destination.
