The region of Cotswold is both an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as a local government district in the county of Gloucestershire. The geographical location of the Cotswold Hills and the district lies in the south-eastern section of the Gloucestershire County and composes of about 50% of the county. While most of the district features small villages, which can be found scattered throughout the hills, the centre of the Cotswolds is considered to be the urban area of Cheltenham, although Cirencester houses the museum for the district.
The Cotswolds Hill district can be traced back as far as 150 A.D. when the area was controlled by the Roman Empire. Due to this lengthy period of control, one can find many Roman artefacts located throughout the region including a fort as well as the fact that many of the roads that are in the area today are actually built on top of the roadways that were originally built by the Roman Empire.
The Cotswold Hills themselves stretch 40 kilometres across and just over 145 kilometres in length. The Hills compose of an oolitic limestone, which is also, the common element which can be found in many of the structures found throughout the district. The highest point of the Cotswolds Hills can be found roughly 4 kilometres north of Cheltenham at an elevation of just over 330 meters above sea level at what is known as Cleeve Hill.
The southern edge of the Cotswolds District includes the urban area of Cirencester while Tewkesbury lies on the northern side. There are a number of smaller villages located throughout the region, most of which have full infrastructure available to them including things like Internet access.
Because of the regions rich Roman History, there are many museums and archaeological sites strewn throughout the region for one to visit with multiple roadways throughout the hills and the main express way going around the circumference of the hills.
Furthermore, it is the limestone foundation of the Cotswold Hills, which brings the natural occurring mineral springs to towns like Cheltenham.
