In 2010, Julie and I decided to rent a house in the Cotswolds, to celebrate our first anniversary. We chose a large 1930s Art Deco bungalow, close to the town of Stow-On-The-Wold, Gloucestershire.

This picturesque part of England is comprised of areas in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire. Many local towns and villages attract thousands of tourists, from all over the world. In one small village, we found an old house converted into an all-year-round Christmas shop.
The main feature of the buildings there, is the distinctive Cotswold Stone. Still popular today, it has been used in the construction of houses for centuries.
If you are ever lucky enough to be in that part of England, be sure to visit Bourton-On-The-Water, Broadway, Burford, and Stow. You won’t be sorry.
