Cotswolds buildings are both unassuming and spectacular. The limestone affords the entire town with a homey warmth that you can't find elsewhere. Greetings to you from Laura in Los Angeles.

Thanks for your comment Laura. I would agree with you about the 'homey warmth'. Where I am now living on the Mediterranean coast could look the same, as the local rock is also a ferruginous limestone, except that the locals prefer a whitewashed finish (to reflect heat in the summer) to the 'homey warmth'. Here is a snap of the condos where I'm currently renting, with a homey warm limestone mountain on the horizon.
