Your January/February issue is here!

We’re welcoming in 2023 with a trip to the beautiful Cotswolds, exploring the new King’s homes across the country, and celebrating some of Britain’s medieval warrior queens

Welcome to the January/February issue of BRITAIN Magazine! There’s no cosier place in the depths of winter than a Cotswold village, the honey-stone cottages all aglow and the rolling hills blanketed in silvery frost. This issue we visit some of the loveliest examples, all clustered together in the North Cotswolds.

And there’s plenty more to cheer you, including stirring stories of Britain’s bold medieval warrior queens, from Anglo-Saxon queen Boudicca to Elizabeth I and Matilda.

We also explore the new King’s homes from grand castles and palaces to country manors, and find out how you can stay on one of the royal estates.

Plus you could be in with a chance of winning a cosy stay in a luxury Cotswolds inn!
