The days are getting longer and the Cotswolds are gradually becoming a floral delight, but there are still plenty of opportunities for frosty morning walks and toasting your feet in front of the fire. Springtime in the Cotswolds is absolute bliss as these pictures show.

With the emergence of pretty pink buds,

 

and blossoming trees,

 

you’ll find dazzling daffodils sprouting throughout the Cotswolds.

 

It’s the perfect opportunity for long, rambling walks through the countryside,

 

with breathtaking, panoramic views.

 

These lazy afternoon strolls are closely followed by muddy wellies piled at the back door,

 

forty winks in front of a cosy fire,

 

and mouth-watering hot cross buns from Daylesford farm.

 

The mornings are still frosty and refreshing,

 

but the days are getting longer and lighter.

 

And despite the rainy weather (perfect for puddle jumping),

 

the lambs come out to play,

 

you can stock up on eggs

 

and fill your boots with delicious chocolate from the Cotswolds Chocolate Company.
