Even after living in England all my life, I’d never visited The Cotswolds until just a couple weeks ago. I was surprised to find out that it is one of the most popular places to visit in the UK. But until I came back from travelling Australia I had never thought of exploring my home country. As budget travellers we always look for the cheapest way to travel and usually, the most expensive cost is transport. So when my dad said he was going on a golf trip near The Cotswolds, we thought it would be a great opportunity for a free lift and to tick this place off our England Bucket List.
The Cotswolds are located in the West of England not far from the Welsh border and spread across four English Counties. Here you can explore the traditional English countryside and villages that will make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. The towns are picturesque and make for some great photo opportunities. We were lucky enough to borrow my dad’s car for a few days and I don’t know what we would have done without it. If you don’t have much time or can’t get a car, then you can still explore The Cotswolds by taking a day trip from London.
Here are some of the best photos we took in The Cotswolds which will make you want to visit:
The first place we visited was the very popular Bourton-On-The-Water.
There are many nice cafes in all the towns and villages in the area.
The architecture in the villages is so old, you won’t find any modern buildings here.
We both can’t walk past chocolate shops without buying anything! This time it was peanuts and raisons covered in milk chocolate.
Not far from Broadway is the Broadway Tower with nice views looking over the English countryside.
Unlike most buildings here, the inside of Chastleton House has been left just as it were 400 years ago, which is very interesting to see.
We really enjoyed exploring The Cotswolds and hope this post inspires you to visit too.
