Burford - Cotsworld (2)


One of the villages visited is called Burford, where the magnificent high street slopes down to the bridge over the River Windrush.

The village remains seemingly unchanged with the passing of time.

Cute decorations on the road.


A perfect post-card town.

Compared to Bibury, Burford is a little big bigger, more shops, more tourists.

Each of the shops has something unique to offer, not like the ones on the fishman's wharf offering pretty much the same thing. One of my favorite one (as belows) sells beautiful wine glasses.

Bibury - Cotsworlds (1)


The Cotsworlds represent an area that is forever England remaining seemlingly unchanged with the passing of time.

The little cottages in the small village are made of specially white lime stones.

Besides the stone cottages, Bibury also has a trout farm.

And, a bunch of well-fed ducks. Glen, on the left, is our tour guide.

We had lunch at Swan Hotel overlooking the River Coln.

"Cots" in Cotsworld actually means "sheep". So, no wonder, a bunch sheep farms were frequently spotted. The trouts for lunch could not get any fresher, since they are from the trout farm cross the street from the restaurant.

The Pyramid in the moonlight.

Exhausted but happy. The picture on the left is by looking at the pyramid from the bottom.
