Cotswolds, United Kingdom

If you’re looking for the most quintessentially English place to visit – The Cotswolds is it. Stone cottages, flowing streams, winding roads and pretty villages make The Cotswolds a postcard perfect destination for a Great British escape. With a driving time of just 2 hours from London, it’s not too far for a weekend break, plus you can stop off in Bath if you want to make the most out of your trip. Driving around The Cotswolds and admiring the scenery is an experience in itself, although if you’re visiting in peak summertime expect to be joined by tourists in some of the bigger towns.

There are so many beautiful towns and places to visit in The Cotswolds that you could spend days touring around, but my top picks are Castle Combe, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Visit to Cotswold Wildlife Park, which offers the most up-close-and-personal experience with wildlife. Enclosure filled with lemurs hopping from tree to tree and snap photos of the rhinos grazing freely in front of the Manor House. Another great place to visit is Sezincote Estate which is a 4,500 acre estate with a 200-year-old Mogul Indian palace.

Cotswolds is without a doubt the most relaxing place for a vacation and it’s no wonder this place has inspired so many writers and poets throughout the years. It’s easy to get here, just hop on a one hour train from Bristol.
