The Cotswolds in Winter…..by drone !
The Cotswolds is a beautiful range of hills, 100 miles west of London. The traditional homes are made of stone….mostly – many with stone roofs too! The towns given publicity by the world’s travel media….Rick Steves and the like, can sometimes be overly touristy which is why I prefer to take my Customers into the less accessible areas where the tour buses cannot go. Frankly, its absolutely gorgeous and definitely has the “WOW” factor!
The Cotswolds are like one huge garden – beautiful countryside, ALWAYS green, with flora literally bursting from the hedgerows in spring and summer, lush colourful crops, quaint villages and isolated farms. Conveniently, the odd country pub pops up just when you are feeling like lunch serving typically British food; pies, casseroles, roast dinners, “bangers and mash”, fish and chips and not forgetting the famous “Ploughman’s Lunch”, followed by delicious puds like “spotted dick”, fruit crumble or apple pie all served with lashings of custard…..(“Custard” is what Americans call “pudding”).
Anyway it was a beautiful sunny day earlier this week so I thought I’d go and experiment a bit more with the drone as well as doing some ground level filming. I’m not claiming this is a technically perfect piece of filming (I’m still definitely learning how to use the drone) but, hopefully, it will give you another glimpse into the Cotswold landscape. Right now the trees are bare but remember, between April and October they will all be green, under full leaf!
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video which was filmed in 4k so if you have a fast enough connection you can watch it at its best – you can click off the ads! The ground level clips were taken on an iPhone. Please feel free to share the video with friends, Customers and colleagues through social media etc.
Please note that although I adore the Cotswolds (this is where I live) most of my tours are further afield. I take Customers on extended tours throughout the UK, Ireland and Western Europe. If you are interested in visiting this side of the pond and need some advice just email or call my toll free number.
