As with many travellers the world over, the recommendations and pictures that appear in the Lonely Planet tend to have a big affect on the places I choose to visit when in a country so to appear on the front is quite a feat.
But as a local I didn’t need the Lonely Planet to recommend somewhere this time! It’s great to see it getting such good exposure though and I sincerely hope that more people visit the Cotswolds because of it.
I tried my hardest to replicate the LP picture when I last visited – how do you think I did?!
I think I must try harder… although I was always up against it what with the threatening clouds and lack of deer! (Spoiler alert: the deer on the Lonely Planet cover must be photoshopped because there’s a fence around their enclosure!)
