  • Caroline Mills

Caroline Mills has been a freelance travel writer/author writing for various UK magazines and guidebooks for over ten years and celebrates 25 years in publishing in 2016. Though not strictly a birthright citizen of the Cotswolds, she grew up in the area from a very early age and has lived in the Cotswolds for over 40 years. With a keen desire to see the area maintain its identity, keeping old traditions alive, and with a passionate love of the countryside in which she lives, Caroline is well placed to paint a very personal picture of this special place. She lives on a farm using organic principles in the Cotswolds. Since the first edition, Caroline has created an accompanying website,, which provides regular updates to life in the Cotswolds, notification of events, new attractions and places to eat and a blog providing additional insights into the Cotswolds. Caroline also now tweets about the Cotswolds under the Twitter handle @SlowCotswolds.
