Lush rolling hills and picture-perfect villages make Cotswolds one of the most popular leisure spots for locals and passing visitors alike. During the height of the season, the area gets packed with tourists exploring the region’s numerous stately homes, thatched cottages, historic churches, and attractive stone-built villages. The wood trade brought wealth and prosperity to this area centuries ago, and the region still proudly boasts hundreds of notable buildings constructed during the Middle Ages. Within easy striking distance of London and several other urban centers, this wealthy area supports a thriving artisan scene, as well as a strong food culture centered around farmer's markets and numerous organic producers.
