Traveling helps to broaden the horizon of one’s knowledge and enlightens the mind. Staying confined to one’s hometown always can cast an adverse effect on the mood system of an individual. Travelling refreshes the soul, infuses new energy into the tired cells of our body by uplifting our mood. It also allows us to discover and explore new culture and places. The rural region of the UK is known to portray a splendid view. The scenic beauty of the villages attracts tourists from all over the world. You can opt for Cotswold tours arranged by experienced tour agencies (London Country Tours) to absorb the untarnished natural beauty of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Cotswold region shelters some of the best historically significant English villages and town, unharmed by the greed of human exploiters yet. This region spreads over 800 sq miles of countryside hills consisting of five counties, housing multiple picturesque villages. It earned the designation of AONB in 1966. The golden honey-coloured Cotswold stone (oolitic Jurassic limestone) houses, notable stately manor houses exhibiting the aristocracy of a by-gone era and well-preserved beautiful churches together cast a spellbinding effect on the travellers here. The abbeys, magnificent castle and pleasantly maintained gardens play their role to beautify this scenic region further.
The region stretches from the border area of South Warwickshire and Worcestershire, passing through Gloucestershire and West Oxfordshire and, including some portions of Bath, Wiltshire, and North East Somerset in the southern part. The beech woodlands, limestone constructions and the grassland habitat typify this region.
