The Costwolds Dec 05, 2009
The Costwolds are an area of outstanding natural beauty (that's the official term, not just me!) in the South West of England. They stretch from just north of Bath, up past Gloucester, to just south of Stratford on Avon.

The Cotswolds are typified by gentle rolling hills and gold-coloured stone villages. The area was heavily occupied by the Romans, and so there are a lot of Roman relics in the area. The hiking is good, and gentle, and there are a great number of nice cafes and good bistros. The area has a lot of very rich residents, including the Prince of Wales, so prices can be high unless you sop around or go into the towns.

Towns include Cirencester, which has a nice museum and some good sushi, and Gloucester, which has a large cathedral. There are a number of hillforts and stone circles in the area too. But most of the attraction in the area is the natural beauty.

Our hiking in the Cotswolds was awesome - perfect for families, and our stay in Chipping Camden was like a delightful step back in time.
