Heart of England
Deep in the belly of England is hidden a glittering array of treasures. The Cotswolds are what holiday daydreams are made of, with their thatched rooves, gently undulating hills and honey-coloured architecture. It’s perhaps no wonder they’ve been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Over in Derbyshire, moorlands meet verdant valleys, while Oxfordshire dazzles with its revered university and historic palaces. Oxford can’t be surpassed when it comes to literary connections; think Lewis Carroll, CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. For Tudor-inspired quaintness, head to Herefordshire, which perches prettily on the Welsh border.
