The Most Beautiful ENGLISH villages in the COTSWOLDS - Part 1
Some of the most beautiful english villages can be found in the Cotswolds. This guide shows you the BEST picture perfect villages and historical properties from this beautiful part of england.
Our 2 part guide, starts in Castle Combe , voted prettiest village in England a number of times. Hardly changed since the 16 hundreds, this sleepy village is also famous for being the backdrop in a number of films, including Steven Spielbergs War House and the 1967 classic Dr Dolittle.
Walking down by the river "By Brook", the weavers cottages are the highlight. Home to the local weavers back in the 15th century, they were highly skilled craftsman men and women and held high status in the village.

For a stately home visit, try Dyrham Park, part of the National Trust collection, this 17th century home and deer parkland has much to offer on a day out for all the family. The grounds are extensive and fallow deer roam the parklands, so keep an eye out for them. Created by William Blathwayt, inside you can learn all about the family, and how a 17th century home was run.

Bibury is not to be missed on any trip to the Cotswolds. Possibly the most beautiful chocolate box village in the Cotswolds and noted as such by William Morris when he visited. The Arlington Row is the highlight of the visit and again seen in movies like Stardust and Bridget Jones Diary. It can get very busy here so suggest you come early morning or late afternoon when the tour buses have past.
Burford has a sweeping long high street with delightful shops, antiques and tearooms. The 15th century parish church of St. John Baptist is a magnificent preserved example and shuld not be misesd whilst in the town.
