One of the most beautiful sights you can see is a sunset in a Cotswold Village. The limestone used has a most incredible way of catching the light. It turns the yellowish stone to a honey coloured hue that seems to draw the sunlight in. It is a most wonderful sight and it shows up in the simplest of countrymen’s old  cottages to the grand Stately Homes Cotswolds way. Why not visit https://www.cotswoldlife.co.uk/out-about/places/enchanting-stately-homes-in-the-cotswolds-10-you-need-to-visit-1-5023981 to have a look..

There are 4 excellent examples of the stone work. Here are some that you should try and see.

  1. Newark Park. Located just outside of Wooten on the Edge, this grand stately home looks out over the Severn Valley and across the Cotswolds to the South. This beauty sits atop the Cotswold Ridge.
  2. Snowshill Manor. At the very northern end of the Cotswolds, this medieval collection house is the perfect example. Nestled in the Hills and the village of Snowshill it seems to trap the rays of the sun in a timeless manner.

  1. Arlington Row. This row of quaint mill workers cottages are one of the the most photographed in all the region.
  2. The Slaughters. Despite the threatening name these village’s, Upper, Lower and Middle are a perfect example of the old rural Cotswold Village.

Make sure you bring your camera to record a sight you’ll not forget.
