Two hours northwest of London, the Cotswolds is a compact region of natural beauty and exquisite rural architecture. Once a center of wool production, the area now contains enchanting medieval villages set amid gently rolling hills. Diminutive cottages built of honey-colored stone surround squares lined with appealing shops and atmospheric pubs. The “capital” of the Cotswolds is the Roman city of Cirencester. During July and August and on weekends, the major towns become excessively crowded, but the back roads and lesser-known villages are still a delight.
