Tucked within the enchanting folds of the British Cotswolds, there are fields of gold. Burnished brighter by sunlight, those blooms glow like gold. Set sight on them once, and they will be etched in your mind’s eyes forever. William Wordsworth, walking “lonely as a cloud,” chanced upon them and wrote an unforgettable poem.

THE DAZZLING DAFFODILS OF THE COTSWOLDS, ENGLAND

Softening the harshness of British winters,  golden daffodils greet you in the Cotswolds. It is as if their trumpet-shaped flowers are literally announcing the onset of spring! Picture yourself, Wordsworth-like, wandering alone until you chance upon these brilliant beauties. So what if the cold winds are piercing your bones; the budding blossoms are sure to warm your heart. Standing amid the golden yellows and clear whites, you can picture yourself in your favourite summer dress and flip flops. So rent a cottage by a daffodil garden and let English countryside bless you with scented serenity.
