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