The Cotswolds are famous for picture-perfect villages, an Instagrammers dream, and rightly so. With its trademark golden stone, well-kept village greens, picturesque hilly streets and foliage to match your hat, every cute corner of the Cotswolds has been photographed ad infinitum. But there is a lot more to the Cotswolds than taking pictures of a pretty doorway (um, yes, guilty). It’s easier than you’d think to veer off the beaten path and step into the surrounding countryside to experience a different view of the Cotswolds.
This summer we spent a glorious few days high up in the Tyrolean Alps in Sankt Anton am Arlberg, Austria. In the winter there’s an array of red, blue and black runs, skiers, snowboarders and apres ski bars. In the summer the slopes are alive with wildflowers, hikers and mountain bikers.
