The Cotswolds Photo Gallery
Step back in time at the Cotswolds, a large area covering 5 counties that showcases rolling countryside, honey-coloured stone buildings, and quaint medieval villages.
This area had its heyday from the 14th to the 18th centuries thanks to its unique sheep breed. A large wool industry grew out of it, funding churches and more. All that came to an end due to the Industrial Revolution, but luckily the architecture and charm have been retained for today's tourists to enjoy.
This part of England is best explored by car. I did a day trip covering a number of small towns, which are a short drive away. However, with a very early sunset during late December, fitting more than 3 towns on a single day road trip is quite difficult.
