The Cotswolds hills are quintessentially English. There is nowhere else in England where landscape and architecture harmonise so perfectly. Cottages, Farms, Manor Houses & Churches all built from the local oolitic limestone seem to have literally grown up out of the ground. They seem to glimmer golden with the lost sunlight of centuries and the overall effect is that of a magical domain lost in its own timescale. Indeed the wonderful illusion is that time really has forgotten the Glorious Cotswolds and left the area preserved as in a dream of a bygone age. It is an Artist’s and Photographer’s paradise. There is a magical "Brigadoon" effect !
