Your Destination —
The booming medieval wool trade brought wealth to the Cotswolds, leaving behind a proliferation of exquisite buildings. In 1966, the region was declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). At 790 sq miles, it’s England’s second-largest protected area after the Lake District. Though it extends from north of Chipping Campden to south of Bath, the bulk of it lies in Gloucestershire. More than 83% is farmland but, even so, around 139,000 people live within the AONB itself.
These gentle yet dramatic hills are perfect for walking, cycling and horse riding, criss-crossed by a network of long-distance tracks, most notably the 102-mile Cotswold Way.
