In September of 2010, I visited the Cotswolds and in in Sept of 2011, I will be making my second trip. This is a most see place, you can go from one Village to the other within a few miles. These Villages have the romance and the beauty of many places seen in movies, like Howard's End etc.. the Roman influence is clearly seen seen in the structure of the cannals and bridges, that run through the middle of some of the Villages. The cottages are hundreds of years old and are built from a yelowish/rose tone stones, which keeps and all around palet; they have aged gracefully through the years. They are all surrounded by manicured gardens and beautiful flowers, cascating from windows and hanging baskets all around. There are shops and Tea houses, B&B and traditional Pubs, which have preserved the romantic Victorian era.
It is as if time stands still and you have been transported to an old painting handging in a gallery. Words would not do justice to these places, nested on the country side on England. The fields are splending sites waiting to be captives of an avid photographer. It is a most to see place and I advise for anyone that would like to visit to book private tours, there are plenty this area, and when planned in advance, they would take you to specific places of your choice. I was fortunate to enjoy one of those, with a driver that in native of the area and gave all sort of detail information and history. Enjoy your holiday and make marvelous memories by visiting this side of England.
