Book Description

3 Sep 2009 A Year in the Life
Set in the heart of England's countryside, the Cotswolds occupies the area between Gloucester, Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon. This area is a perfect blend of gentle rolling hills, plentiful archaeological sites and charming villages built from a local honey coloured limestone. In recognition of the beauty of this quintessentially English countryside, the area covering 790 square miles was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966.



Despite its popularity with tourists, the Cotswolds remains tranquil and serene. The perfect, traditional Cotswolds villages offer historic places, friendly pubs and craft shops. Most of the villages and smaller towns have survived unspoilt. Traditional museums like Corinium Museum in Cirencester, Cotswolds Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucester Cathedral, Roman Baths, Sudeley Castle or Blenheim Palace are complemented by fabulous gardens of Westonbirt, Painswick, Batsford and Hidcote. The countryside with its gentle hills and open spaces is ideal for a variety of outdoor activities such as horse-riding, cycling, ballooning and walking, making the Cotswolds a dream place to live and visit.



Beata Moore's glorious photographs show the charm of the Cotswolds through the seasons.

Product Description

Review

Beata's photographs inspire tourists and locals to delve deeper into the heart of the region. (Gloucestershire Echo)

As a gift to a Cotswolds' resident or a far flung relative this book will provide summary entertainment. (Field)

'A Year in the Life of the Cotswolds' landed on my desk and entranced me from the first page. Her photographs perfectly capture the beauty, tradition and atmosphere of the region, and will have you grappling with the map, ready to go and explore the region yourself. (Oxford Mail)

Contains stunning views of places we know well and some which we might not have seen before. (Bath Chronicle)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessentially English 4 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover
I got this book as a present and was delighted with it. I am absolutely in love with England and especially with this part, which is so quintessentially English. The book depicts the very character of the area with its breathtaking views as well as architectural details. It is a wonderful collection of evocative photographs that show the diversity and true beauty of the English countryside. A beautiful souvenir very every tourist and countryside lover.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Year in the life of the Cotswolds 15 May 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very dissapointed with this book. A year in any of the lovely Cotswolds villages would surely have produced some Winter snow scenes, but the Winter section did not contain 1 photograph.A great opportunity missed.

Also too much emphasis on architecture.

If I had seen it in a book shop I would not have bought it.

I bought this for my Mum to go with a surprise holiday to the Cotswolds. It's got some fab photos and will hopefully provide inspiration for her painting.

I gave this to my daughter in law for Christmas and she loves it. She had vacationed in the Cotswolds and had fallen in love with the area. It brings back wonderful memories to see some of the familiar places she had visited.
