The Cotswolds: An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Gracefully spread out across six counties, the Cotswolds are the epitome of charm. If you're looking for the perfect day trip from London, look no further than the tangle of golden villages, thatched-roof cottages, quaint little town churches, ancient mansions as well as a plethora of cream teas and organic local produce. The Cotswolds are just stupid pretty and it doesn't get more picturesque than this!
