Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The Cotswolds is one of the country’s most beautiful landscapes with nearly 800 square miles of superb scenery, picturesque towns and villages, as well as endless opportunities to get out and explore the area on foot, by bike or on horseback.

Its central feature are the Cotswolds Hills which rise gently from the broad, green meadows of the upper Thames to crest in a dramatic escarpment above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. Rural England at its most mellow, the landscape draws a unique warmth and richness from the famous limestone beauty of its buildings.
