One of the most beautiful and famously known rural area in the country is Cotswold. It is situated in south central England (and some parts of Wales) and covers six counties, notably Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire, as well as Somerset, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. It contains Cotswold Hills, a range of rolling hills rising from meadows of Thames River to an escarpment called Cotswold Edge, above Evesham Vale and Severn Valley. This area is defined by bedrock of Jurassic limestone, creating rare grassland habitat and is quarried for a distinctive golden-coloured stone, which is depicted in the area’s rural landscape in its historical towns, stone-built villages and state homes.
There are so many pretty towns and villages in the Cotswold area that you can choose from and decide where to stay, among them include: Castle Combe, Cheltenham, Ashton-under-Hill, Blockley, Lower Slaughter, Kingham, Mickleton, Bibury, Bredon and Naunton.
