Note to editors:
The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
