When I think of the English countryside, my mind goes to the Cotswolds. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is so deserving of its designation it’s sometimes hard to believe it’s real. But I’ve traveled here enough to know it is, and in doing so I’ve discovered some particularly lovely places. Today I want to share some of my favorites with you, so read on for A Lady in London’s 13 pretty Cotswolds villages.

科茨沃尔德村

Prettiest Cotswolds Villages

很难作出有关的最漂亮的科茨沃尔德村庄名单,因为有这威廉希尔真人娱乐场么多的选择。事实上,整个面积是华丽。

从连绵起伏的丘陵城镇和城市,如Bath赛伦塞斯特, this part of England is packed with beauty. But since I’ve set myself the challenge of choosing the best, here they are.

1. Painswick

佩恩斯威克might just be the loveliest Cotswolds village. With its stone buildings, giant topiary trees, and my最喜欢的酒店在Cotstwolds, this little gem is packed with beauty.

I love walking through the streets to soak up the details and meander through the churchyard, not to mention venture further afield to explore the surrounding countryside. There are great walking paths from Painswick to places like Slad.

This village is also home to the Painswick Rococo Garden, an 18th-century garden in a secret valley with great views across the surrounding countryside. It’s the UK’s only complete surviving Rococo garden and it’s worth a trip.

2.科姆堡

Nestled in Wiltshire in the southern Cotswolds,科姆堡has a picture-perfect high street, adorable side streets, and shops with teapot signs overhead.

它包含了一切我喜欢的英语村,并成为这里的感觉就像走进一个童话威廉希尔真人娱乐场。

科姆堡is a great Cotswolds village to explore for its chocolate box houses and pretty bridge over the By Brook river. It’s a quintessential English country village, and one that’s a must on any visit to the area.

3. Chipping Campden

I spent aweekend in the Cotswoldsa couple years ago and stayed in Chipping Campden. I loved the historic high street with its Cotswold stone buildings and its atmospheric churchyard. Everything about this village is lovely.

奇平卡姆登is also known for its connections to theArts and Crafts Movement. The historic home of the Guild of Handicrafts is here, and the Court Barn museum showcases the work of designers and craftspeople from the movement.

Also in the village is the Market Hall, a在科茨沃尔德国家信托财产. Built in 1627 by the town’s benefactor, Sir Baptist Hicks, it originally sheltered traders of cheese, butter, poultry, and other goods.

Today people can walk across the historic stone floor to see how it was gradually worn by years of trading.

4. Upper Slaughter

我访问了我的第一个前往科茨沃尔德屠杀。这些相邻的科茨沃尔德村的一些在该地区最美丽的,和Upper Slaughter赢得了我拥有美丽的石屋和鲜花丰富。

If there was ever an idyllic village in the English countryside, this is it.

上屠杀的谎言上,它连接到下屠宰流上方的斜坡。村是著名的庄园,其历史可以追溯到15世纪。

There are also attractive medieval almshouses and the historic St Peter’s Church to see.

隔壁,下斯洛特也同样可爱。随着横贯村庄的中间,一个历史悠久的工厂在水中转动田园河眼睛,逛感觉像被运回的时间。

As with Upper Slaughter, there are beautiful cottages here that always tempt me to move in.

Lower Slaughter has more to see than Upper Slaughter, and consequently gets more visitors.

除了水磨和石灰石别墅,有两个小的桥梁,使伟大的照片的机会。该工厂还设有商店和咖啡馆以及博物馆。

6.拜伯里

家里什么米ight be the most photographed street in the Cotswolds, Bibury sits on the banks of the River Coln and is straight out of a fantasy.

Picturesque Arlington Row is lined with 17th-century weavers’ cottages and attracts visitors from all over the world. William Morris called Bibury ‘the most beautiful village in England’, and he might just be right.

Bibury is also home to a water meadow known as Rack Isle. It’s an important wildlife habitat in the Cotswolds. Rack Isle is home to water voles, kingfishers, and dragonflies as well as plants like pink ragged robin and yellow flag iris.

This loveliest of Cotswolds villages is also home to a trout farm. It was established in the early 20th century by naturalist Arthur Severn to stock local rivers and streams with native brown trout.

为了最糟糕的是,还有就是所谓的风火轮一个历史性的乡村酒吧。这家家庭式经营地点在一天的观光的好去处饮品或午餐。

阿灵顿行,拜伯里

7. Kingham

Kingham is a dream for lovers of houses and gardens. From topiary hedges to Cotswold stone cottages, this prettiest of Cotswolds villages is picturesque in every direction.

When I visited I loved taking walks in the area to soak up the fields and flowers. I also took a stroll to the nearby Daylesford Organic Farm in Gloucestershire, a luxurious complex with shops, restaurants, and a garden center.

此外,Kingham有一个村庄商店浏览,历史悠久的圣安德鲁教堂,欣赏,和大气的酒吧享受。

Kingham is easily accessible by train from London, so it’s a great place to go if you want to visit theCotswolds without a car.

8.伯福德

I’ve been to Burford a number of times, and I always adore its high street.

With lots of boutiques, cafes, and historic pubs, it’s a great place to wander and window shop. There are lots of pretty houses in the area, too, and it’s always fun to wander down the lanes.

This is one of the best Cotswolds villages for its mix of attractions.

In addition to the high street, there’s the stunning Burford Church, the Tolsey Museum, which is in an attractive 16th-century building, and Reavley’s, England’s oldest pharmacy.

As the name suggests, Bourton-on-the-Water straddles a stream. This Cotswolds village has an abundance of footbridges and green spaces along the banks of the River Windrush, making it lovely from any angle.

附近的愚蠢,百老汇大厦,是参观的一个不可错过的亮点。

Also in this Cotswolds village is the Gordon Russell Design Museum.

11. Bretforton

从百老汇不远,Bretforton是另一种最好的科茨沃尔德村庄。这个地方有茅草屋顶的别墅,历史悠久的教堂,半木结构的酒吧可以追溯到几个世纪。

我喜欢在这里走来走去的狭窄的街道,浸泡了所有的小细节。

Bretforton是最好的羊毛酒店,一个15世纪的酒吧,拥有古老的的内饰和氛围的负荷闻名。

Also in town is the Church of St Leonard, a historic church with a pretty churchyard surrounding it.

12. SLAD

Another pint-size Cotswolds village that deserves a place on my list is Slad. I walked here from Painswick once and was rewarded with a lovely lunch at the Woolpack Inn.

Across the street is the churchyard where Laurie Lee—local literary legend and author of苹果酒与罗西,他在童年回忆录科茨沃尔德-被埋。

Despite its small size, Slad packs a lot in. It’s worth a visit not just to eat or drink at the pub, but to take a walk and absorb the surroundings.

13. Sapperton

A short drive from Slad, Sapperton is another of the best Cotswolds villages.

全漂亮的房子,一个伟大的当地酒吧,以及工艺美术运动架构的一些运动最有名的建筑师,设计师在这里居住和埋在教堂,Sapperton蜱我所有的箱子一个可爱的乡村。

Sapperton has two historic graveyards, one of which lies above St Kenelm’s Church. The church is worth popping into for its historic interiors. There’s also a village hall, which is across the street from The Bell at Sapperton pub.
