Spring in the cotsworlds
|Posted On: June 6, 2016||By: fusion-admin|
The pristine nature of the Cotswolds region in the UK is very well known for its abundant beauty. Travellers from the world flock to the English villages to see and experience the scenic beauty first hand undiluted and unadulterated as it is. Aarttee Kaul Dhar explores the region.
The Cotswold tours are famous all over the globe for nature lovers and tourists who visit England during the Spring season just to explore the most breath-takingly beautiful area of the Cotswolds, a bunch of villages and towns that just spurt into an unending garden of flowers from April to October. There are a variety of tours run and operated to meet the demands of the unending trail of interested tourists hoping to see the area from close quarters and in detail. Walking every road, treading every pathway and exploring every plain becomes a herculean task keeping in mind the huge expanse of the Cotswolds which is more of a cultural area than geographical. Many villages and towns make this area and the tours run have to be classified into north and south Cotswolds, east and west Cotswolds to make it easier for the tourists and manageable for people who know what they want to see.
What makes the trips more fun in this area is the fact that one can pick and choose the way one wants to travel depending upon the time, speed and pocket of each traveler. There are chauffeur driven tours, cycling tours, coach trips, walking trips as well as group or individually tailored tours for a family. Though there is a large area to be covered that would take days if one wants to see the entire Cotswolds, but a hurried traveler or a tourist on a timetable could easily visit the three major towns and still go back content and smiling that he has seen nature’s bounty satisfactorily. These three are Bibury, Broadway and Bourton-on-the-Water.
Being UK’s most prized area of outstanding scenic beauty, a delighted traveler will see iconic cottages in stone, castles built in the medieval times, quaint picture postcard villages and sublime sunrises and sunsets. It is for those who want a real taste of England. Time stands still for a person who is in the middle of such an exhilarating experience. Exploring the countryside can be a unique experience here and something to write home about. Some of the major attractions you should not leave out, whichever way you choose to travel are:
Bibury, Castle Combe, Lacock, Chipping Campden, Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe, Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway Tower, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford.
If you take some smaller tours you can see quieter, prettier off the beaten track hamlets which are otherwise in accessible to large train or coach journeys. Some such places are: The Slaughters, The Barringtons, The Rissingtons, Stanton, Stanway, Blockley, Snowshill and Guiting Power. Cotswolds tours can be taken individually as a single day trip or they can be combined into a multi-day cycle and drive packages with or without accommodation. These adventures can also arrange pickups from airports, train stations and hotels both in and out of the Cotswolds region with the tours making perfect day trips from London the heart of England.
The cycle tours are very exciting. Along with adding fitness and a glow to your face they offer a spectacular view of the areas up close. Starting and finishing at the pretty market town of Moreton-in-Marsh they start as a guided trip, offering something for everyone. Passing through pretty Cotswold villages, beautiful scenery and quintessential Cotswold countryside along the way this really is a fun-packed day out. The distance is easily manageable over the course of the day and the pace is relaxed offering plenty of time for photo stops, sightseeing and some refreshments at one of the dozen or so Cotswold pubs along the way! Bike, helmet, guide and full support is provided. It is very suitable for all above the age of sixteen. This tour has its own charm like:
