Quintessential British village: Duntisbourne Abbots in Cotswolds
The perfect place to live doesn't ex... oh wait, it does! It's Duntisbourne Abbots. Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, an area often dubbed as "England's quintessential countryside," this small village with a population of a little over 200 people completely captured my heart for all the right reasons.
Duntisbourne Abbots captures the essence of rural England. Its historic beauty, charming countryside, and peaceful atmosphere make it an ideal place for anyone looking to escape the stresses of modern life and enjoy the soothing rhythm of nature.
Surrounded by the breathtaking Cotswold countryside, Duntisbourne Abbots offers many lovely walking trails that take you through lush meadows, ancient woodlands, and along winding streams.
The village is exceptionally quiet, with little traffic (if any). While walking through its historic, narrow lanes, we listened to birdsong and admired the beautiful, characteristic limestone cottages that perfectly blend with the surrounding nature.
If you arrive in Duntisbourne Abbots by car, I highly recommend parking at the back of the village hall; otherwise, finding a parking space can be rather difficult in the village.
