Belas Knapp – the most beautiful Cotswold place. べラス.ナップ - コッツウォルズで一番美しい場所

We walked to Belas Knapp, a beauty spot near Winchcombe. Park the car just outside the town and walk up and up, gaining height until you can see for miles, with views of Sudeley Castle. In July there are cornfields, lazy sheep and wild grass everywhere.



At the top of the hill is Belas Knapp, a beautifully located Neolithic long barrow dating back about 5,500 years  (‘Long barrows’ were burial places in ancient times).





On a beautiful, sunny July day there are few better places to be than here. Especially if you head to a nearby farmhouse for afternoon tea afterwards.
