The Cotswolds are a range of rolling hills in south central England. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966, it has unique features derived from the local golden-coloured limestone known as Cotswold stone. The predominantly rural landscape containing stone-built villages, historical towns, and stately homes and gardens, is known worldwide. Many consider the Cotswolds as representative of the archetypal English landscape.
The area is roughly 25 miles (40 km) across and 90 miles (145 km) long. It is within easy reach of London and several other English urban centres. The highest point of the region is Cleeve Hill at 1,083 ft (330 m), just to the north of Cheltenham.
