One of the delights of visiting the Cotswolds is exploring the different areas, each with its own identity. But all have those defining Cotswold features: golden stone, lively market towns and rolling hills, the ‘wolds’. Explore these English villages of honey-coloured stone and take in splendid, lively market towns. Bourton-on-the-Water straddles the River Windrush with its series of elegant low bridges beside neat tree-shaded greens and tidy stone banks. Standing back from the river are traditional Cotswolds buildings, many of which are now tourist shops for the day-trippers and visitors. Nearby Stow is another iconic Cotswold destination, located high up on the Roman Fosse Way and offering fabulous views from its position as the highest of the Cotswolds towns.
The county town of Warwickshire is famous for its magnificent castle and historic charm and range of independent businesses offering an enticing blend of the old and the new, from gift shops, antique centres and traditional tea rooms to fashion shops, art galleries and fine restaurants.

Swan Street is always a hive of activity and the town’s busiest shopping street, Smith Street is the oldest shopping street in Warwick and boasts a unique mix of independent shops and restaurants. Warwick is also home to many beautiful parks, should you just wish to take some time out to sit back, relax and enjoy the views…
