Cotswolds Memoir : Discovering a Beautiful Region of Britain on a Quest to Buy a 17th Century Cottage Paperback
by Diz White
After British-born, comedy actress Diz White found herself craving Yorkshire Pudding at every meal she knew her roots were pulling her back from America to her homeland.
It was time to buy a Cotswolds Cottage! Her roller-coaster search doubles as a travel-tour that takes in every delight of the Cotswolds: historic sites, hog roasts, hiking the Cotswold Way and pub walks with her husband, often bagging the walk in favour of a slightly boozy lunch.There were highs, heartbreaks and cliff-hangers as she was charged by a bull named Chasin' Mason, auditioned for the hind end of a horse and was trampled by thirty children while wearing a bear suit, but the fondness she developed for this region and its vivid inhabitants gave her a feeling of community missing from her busy urban existence.
Will this author's dream cottage become a reality? Find out in this witty love note to the Cotswolds. This book does double-duty as a travel tour of the Cotswolds and features a valuable VISITOR'S GUIDE with GPS and Sat Nav info, a MAP and over a dozen especially commissioned PHOTOGRAPHS.

Review by bookbatty
I enjoyed this book. It made me remember my holiday in the Cotswalds, and I could dip in and out of it.
