Lots and lots of chocolate box type cottages in Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury I can tell you that!

These two lovely Cotswolds villages are a must-see when in the region… and when you’re not able to visit them, then I invite you to read on as I’ve got plenty of pics for you 🙂

Bourton-on-the-Water

Bourton-on-the-Water is a village in Gloucestershire and lies in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The village is so picturesque with the river Windrush flowing right through it. The many bridges, honey coloured houses and windowsills covered with flowers make it a pleasure to have a walk around it.

There are several tourist attractions: there as model village (a 1:9 replica of the village), a model railway, the Cotswold Motoring Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens,…

Bibury is another Cotswold village situated in Gloucestershire. It lies on both banks of the River Coln.

One of the major tourist attractions is actually a row of houses…  but then they are just so traditional and rural and picturesque you just have to love them: Arlington Row. The cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. It is a very well know Cotswold scene, used on many postcards and also in films like Bridget Jones’s Diary.

These little villages in the Cotswolds are all so beautiful… just soak up the atmosphere of the English countryside I’d say…
