Getting back to nature with a holiday rental in the Cotswolds
Officially known as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds is generally considered to be one of the most breathtaking areas of England. From an architectural standpoint, the area is famous for its stone-built villages and quaint historic towns, such as Burford and Cirencester. It's also a mecca for hikers and casual walkers looking to traverse Cotswold Way, a 100-mile trail through picturesque countryside and ancient sites. The Cotswolds is also known for the numerous artisan cheeses it produces. To commemorate its dairy roots, every year, locals chase a wheel of Double Gloucester down Cooper's Hill as part of a local dairy festival.
