Picturesque villages and idyllic countryside, with traditional pubs and tea-rooms at every turn, the Cotswolds offers a glimpse of England at its most traditionally picturesque. South of the Cotswolds lies the county of Somerset, steeped in myth and history. Begin in the North Cotswolds and take tea on the village Green. Head through the southern Cotswolds to the beautiful Georgian city of Bath.
A short drive away lies Castle Combe, often called Britain’s prettiest village, with a high street dating back hundreds of years. From here, drive into Somerset and the town of Glastonbury, which is the spiritual heart of Britain; Glastonbury Abbey is said to be the final resting place of the legendary King Arthur, while the isolated hill of Glastonbury Tor is one of Britain’s holiest places.
