The Cotswolds are a famously beautiful part of England, and the village of Bourton on the Water is no exception. (It’s even an official “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.) I was lucky enough to travel there a few weeks ago. I happened to arrive in the town just as they were starting their Remembrance Day ceremony.
The area is also famous for it’s predominantly stone homes. These beautiful villages were built in the time when English wool was king and they were racking in the big bucks. Bourton on the Water has about 4,000 inhabitants and is therefore considered a “larger” village for the area. It has a really picturesque High Street with the River Windrush running alongside it. Maybe I wouldn’t have loved living there as a teenager, but I’d certainly love to live there now!
Also if you are obsessed with “Buffy” or “Angel” like I am, you might recognise the area from an episode of “Angel” called “A Hole in the World” where Spike and Angel are looking for, predictably, an ancient demon in order to save Fred.
Have you traveled through the Cotswolds before?
