The Cotswolds is the second largest area of protected landscape in England. Honey colored houses, verdant rolling hills, narrow roads and endless rows of yellow goodness; thanks to the rapeseed plant and a magnificent estate which made real the stuff written about english countryside and nobility in my favorite regency romance novels- that pretty much sum up why I love England. While it’s only a brief glimpse and experience of the countryside; it’s enough to make me want to come back for more.
Heythrop Park Resort , Oxfordshire
Built in the 18th century for Charles Talbot, the 1st Duke of Shewsbury; it has undergone some transformations and has been converted into a hotel, golf park and wedding venue.
Ok, my friend Dory got a bit crazy here; imagining Mr Darcy exploring the grounds of this beautiful estate.
and a lovely breakfast at the hotel the day after.
