It is famous for its hundreds of honey-colour limestone villages and rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale.

The Cotswolds has one of the lowest population densities in England, giving it a delightfully rural feel, full of English charm.
