Midas touches the Cotswolds

I’m the first person to moan about the end of summer. The nights draw in, the time I spend outside involves being cold and getting  wet, the list goes on.

But autumn in England is beautiful. And an outstanding example of English beauty in autumn is the Cotswolds.

Everything turns to gold. By evening the honey-coloured buildings are bathed in warm sunlight and yellowing leaves cover the trees and ground. These photos were taken in Lower Slaughter, a stunning little village close to Bourton-on-the-water.

I’ve spent two weekends in the Cotswolds this October, and I must admit I’m rather addicted to the place. So I’m going to go back this weekend and make the most of this gorgeous season.

  1. Oh my gosh, that is so beautiful! I used to complain about the end of summer as well, but now that I live in Singapore, a place that has a never ending summer, I wish I could have some cold days!
