After a lovely couple of days in Bath and Cheddar Gorge, the last stop on our mini road trip was the Cotswolds where we planned on seeing some of England’s greenest countryside and stopping off at several of its small villages before heading back home. As is typical in England, it rained pretty much the whole time, but this didn’t make the area any less beautiful. In fact, I took so many photos that I just had to share all the prettiness of the Cotswolds with you.
The tiny village of Lacock reminded me of the village from the film Hot Fuzz. Hopefully there are not so many axe murderers here though!
Lacock is home to some of the oldest remaining houses in the UK. Some tilt forward precariously and look like they’re about to crumble down making it the perfect setting for the many films and TV shows the village can be seen in including Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice.
Because every village in the Cotswolds has to have a tea room!
Castle Combe is said to be England’s prettiest village and I have to completely agree with that
The locals of Castle Combe watching a play on the lawn. I don’t think you can get any more typically old-fashioned English than that!
Cakes sold on doorsteps with an honest box for you to put your money in. People are a lot more trustworthy in the Cotswolds than they are in London!
The terrace and lovely view from our bed and breakfast
Even in the rain Bibury is still green and beautiful
The row of weavers’ cottages in Arlington Row in Bibury is one of the most photographed places in the Cotswolds

Having fun at the duck races in Bourton on the Water. Mr Ayla loved letting his inner child out here!
Bourton on the Water is one of the bigger and more touristy villages in the Cotswolds but it’s still just as gorgeous and green
There are so many cute cottages all over the Cotswolds but this one in Upper Slaughter has got to be the cutest
One last stop for a delicious afternoon tea at Huffkin’s Bakery in Burford
