Why you should visit the Cotswolds!
by Nico McKenzie
Are you dreaming of a countryside escape in England? Two days of driving through the idyllic countryside, stopping off for forest walks, pub lunches, and cute villages is a luscious experience.
Here are our top spots for a relaxing Cotswolds road trip…
Kick off your driving tour with one of the most iconic spots in the Cotswolds. Bibury is a ridiculously pretty village near Cirencester which makes the perfect introduction to the area. Close your eyes and imagine an old-fashioned English village. That’s what Bibury looks like. William Morris called it “the most beautiful village in England” – and he may well be right.
Next stop… The picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Nicknamed the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, this is another of the prettiest villages in the area, seated on the scenic River Windrush.
It’s a larger village than some of the others, and quite touristy, so you’ll find lots to do. And prenty of great pubs and eateries to enjoy, too. This makes the village an excellent base for exploring the Cotswolds.
