The Cotswolds is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions in the British Isles, with rolling hills and valleys punctuated by traditional villages and towns. Places such as Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Burford, and larger market towns including Cirencester, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold are distinctly Cotswold in character and always provide a warm welcome. Nearby attractions include the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway (GWR) at Toddington, where you can take a trip on a real steam train. The Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley are only a stone’s throw from the city of Gloucester. One of England’s few remaining ancient forests and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its rich and varied landscape, the area provides endless interest for walkers, artists, and nature-lovers. The enchanting Puzzlewood is immensely popular with film fans having been used as a location for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Clearwell Caves is the Royal Forest of Dean’s Iron Mining Museum. Dating back over 4500 years, visitors can explore nine atmospheric caverns which are connected by winding passageways.
