13 Photos to Inspire You to Go to the Cotswolds

Tucked in the middle of rural England, the Cotswolds are an idyllic set villages spanning five counties just outside of Oxford. Lavender fields dot Cotswold Hills, while charming pubs are local gathering places in Bourton-on-the-Hill and Gloucestershire. If you go, stay at the quaint Coach House Bed & Breakfast in Moreton-in-Marsh; owner Pamela is the town beautician and cooks a mean homemade breakfast in her stone kitchen in the mornings. Plus, there's a soaker tub and The Red Lion pub down the street (make a reservation!).
