The Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it’s Britain’s largest at 790 square miles (2038 square kilometres). Oolitic limestone is responsible for the “honey” coloured cottages which dot the landscape and the Cotswold stone walls which punctuate the rolling hills. It’s an area of warmth with open skies, rolling grasslands, Beech woods and charming villages.
There are miles and miles of walking and cycling routes, an amazing variety of events, festivals and numerous attractions from stately homes to magnificent gardens, farm parks to vistas.
The Cotswold Way runs from Chipping Campden in the north of the district to the glorious city of Bath in the south, the 102 mile path is a great attraction to many, many visitors throughout the year.
Mickleton is just a few minutes’ drive away from Chipping Campden once described by Pevsner as “The best piece of townscape in Gloucestershire, arguably one of the best in England”. The town’s wool legacy can still be seen today in St James’ Church and along the high street.
