Touring The Southern Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is a geographical area touching the border of six counties in the south of England. It spans from north-east to south-west placed roughly between the upper parts of The Thames River and River Severn. Not only it does it contain a nationally venerated arboretum but contains an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB), not far off National Park status. Also contained within these confines is the source of The Thames which depending on its precise location could easily make it the longest river in Britain. The warm mustardy colour houses and churches made up of oolitic limestone are described more commonly as Cotswold Stone. Dry stone walling, thatched cottages and half-timbered houses padded with beds of lavender make visits here a place to feast your eyes on.
