The unique Cotswolds region of England provides wonderful living conditions to suite all tastes and pockets.
The region is very popular with Americans as the Cotswolds is quintessentially England going back to the 16th and 17th centuries when the early settlers set off to discover a new life across, what is now, a very small pond.
The romantic notion of 'going back in time' is, in our modern technological world, an appealing one to many people and of course this is what the Cotswolds offer, but with the modern conveniences that we have come to take so much for granted, albeit, in very much of a toned down way.
The Cotswolds villages and ancient market towns are totally preserved and most officially protected by the government in 'Conservation Areas' and by being either Grade I or II listed buildings. It is because of this that any new building, if any, will be found well away from the idyllic village setting and very much hidden.
