Best places to visit in the Cotswolds | TRAVEL GUIDE

The Cotswolds has everything you’d expect from the idyllic English countryside. Rural landscapes, green hills filled with sheep and quaint villages. With old churches and cottages built with traditional honey coloured Cotswold stone, it’s pretty dreamy indeed. There are plenty of beautiful places to visit in the Cotswolds.
