The Beautiful Cotswolds

A friend recently reminded me how much he loves the Cotswolds and how pleasant it would be to live there. There is so much to enjoy. The small villages with interesting shops. Gardens that look like pictures in garden magazines. The yellow/brown stone houses which are super photogenic. And the area is full of history, monuments and old churches.

Our family took us there last year. We had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures, taken in the Cotswolds.

Please scroll down – there are 8 pictures.

Thank you.

The pictures speak for themselves.

Bourton-on -the Water

A Burford Garden

St. Edward’s Church, Stow-on-the Wold

“Did I hear something?”

How old are the two yew trees? Who knows. Apparently yew trees grow for a very, very long time. And the Church? We are told that people have worshiped on this site for over a thousand years’ Welcome to history in the Cotswolds!

More of the Stag

Spotted in the car park in Burford.

I cannot describe the magnificent roar she made as she pulled off.

And yes, the owner was justifiably very proud of her!
