Into the woods


The colours most associated with the Cotswolds are the vivid green of its meadows (dotted white with lambs in spring) and the pale honey hue of the local stone that holds up all those thatched cottage roofs. From mid-April to May, however, another colour is added to the mix, when woods all across the region are carpeted in a purple haze of bluebells. The Sheep on Sheep Street, in the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, makes the perfect base for woodland wanderings. This restaurant with boutique rooms blends in with its surroundings, the classic 17th-century charm of its exterior balanced with a cosily contemporary look inside. From here, head to Foxholes, a peaceful woodland awash with bluebells and dappled light. Pick your way along a network of paths, keeping your eyes peeled for butterflies which are beginning to emerge from their chrysalises.

About Lonely Planet Traveller (UK)

In the May issue… We're spilling some travel secrets. Northeast India is the country's most overlooked corner – follow us on a Great Escape here to see rhinoceroses and meet hill-country villagers whose not-so-distant ancestors were headhunters. New Zealand's North Island may be better known, but using a campervan to get around opens up unforeseen vistas and possibilities. In other features, Northern Ireland proves to be a surprising gastronomic destination, while Casablanca's status as Morocco's largest city – yet one that features on few travellers' itineraries – means its Art Deco-era treasures hide in plain sight. Plus, discover 24 fantastic places to stay this spring, and much more
