If you ever wished to be transported in time and visit one of the old English towns to see how they were, then Cotswold is your answer. Set in central south England, Cotswold is a small village cum town about 2 hours driving time from London. Most tourists visit London to see the London Eye, central London and other tourist places but if you are visiting London this summer and have a couple of days in hand, I highly recommend you visit Cotswold and stay a day there. Your first impression of the town as you walk into it is amazing – the entry into the village starts with a stream flowing through the town with tiny English houses lining up the stream on both sides. Made of Cotswold stone (the town takes its names from these Cotswold stones), these houses are tiny and really beautiful with ornate decorations, carved iron gateways and beautiful gardens. As you walk in further, you will notice ducks in the stream following you to give them some food and they may follow you till the end of the stream so it may be a good idea to buy some Duck food from one of the tiny shops around and feed the ducks (a duck food bag cost 50pence). If you are traveling with kids, they will love playing with the ducks.

Further down the stream you will see little shops called “nooks” where you can buy locally made artifacts and handicrafts. I bought a little while sailing boat for 6 pounds but you have a lot of options from choose from including fridge magnets, wall decorations, sign boards etc. The Cotswold village also houses a small automobile museum where you can see cars from an era long gone ago. The town has a lot to keep you busy but I recommend just strolling around the town and checking out the little shops – the cafes are great, so sit by the stream and enjoy an ice-cream or a nice cup of coffee. Weather is cold, so either is just perfect.

If you are visiting over next two months, you may find a lot of sun too! On a final note, Cotswold is also countes amongst England’s one of the most haunted locations so if you are the daring types then you can try the night too! I didn’t J but that’s upto you. Overall, the town is  awesome, I loved it and felt it is a great, happy and relaxing place to be in.
