Publisher Description

Planning a visit to the English Cotswolds? Welcome to the updated third edition of the Visitor's Guide to the English Cotswolds. The book was updated on April 9, 2015. The book has been expanded and now includes more destinations, sights, places to stay, pubs, and much more. So if you're planning a visit to the Cotswolds you'll find this guide to be a valuable resource.

You'll find all of the information you need to plan your trip and make it a great success. The English Cotswolds are a chain of undulating, limestone foothills that encompass a quiet, idyllic world of sleepy little towns and villages nestled among the hills and dales. Rising to just over 1,000 feet at the highest point on Cleeve Hill, the Cotswolds are spread across a half-dozen West Midland counties, including Gloucestershire, Avon, Wiltshire, Hereford and Worcester and Oxfordshire. For more than 90 miles, from Meon Hill just six miles south of Stratford-Upon-Avon, they stretch westward across the heart of England all the way to the great Roman city Bath.

For more than 1,000 years these pastoral, rolling hills have been home to farmers and shepherds and... well, to me. Please allow me to introduce you to my Cotswolds. Yes, we'll visit all the well-known and not-to-be-missed spots along the way, but I'll take you to places off the beaten path - places that very few visitors to the Cotswolds ever get to visit. Chipping Campden, Broadway, Stanton, Stanway, Snowshill, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Naunton, Northleach, Chedworth, The Slaughters, Buckland, Winchcombe, Burford, Cirencester and Bath are just some of the towns we'll visit. Off the beaten path we'll visit the Duntisbournes villages, the tiny hamlet of Ford, the village of Bibury, and many more. There's an air of timelessness among these ancient hills, honey-colored towns, villages, and cottages.
