The Cotswolds is an area in the south-central England that contains the Cotswold Hills. The Cotswold Hills are a range of rolling hills that rise from the upper Thames meadows to the escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge. The scenic area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone that creates a type of grassland habitat that is rare in the UK, and that is quarried for the golden coloured Cotswold stone. The area contains unique features that are derived from the use of this mineral with the predominantly rural landscape that contains stone-built villages, historical towns and stately homes and beautiful gardens.
