'Cotswolds Memoir: Discovering a Beautiful Region of Britain on a Quest to Buy a 17th Century Cottage' is a new book from Cotswolds based author and actor Diz White.
The story began when comedy actress Diz found herself craving Yorkshire Pudding at every meal, knowing that her roots were pulling her back from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to her homeland in the UK. After a holiday in the Cotswolds, with her husband, Diz was sold and the hunt was on to find her dream country cottage.
However, the search wasn’t just about finding the perfect house; it was about discovering the Cotswolds region and meeting some wonderfully eccentric country characters along the way. During her quest, Diz visited Roman settle-ments, Domesday churches, archeology digs, and enjoyed river rambles, garden tours and pub hikes.
This memoir explores her journey, through a combination of laugh-out-loud moments and cliff-hanging twists, to the satisfaction of a hard won prize. Not only is Cotswolds Memoir a wonderful story, it’s also a valuable insight into some of the best ‘off-the-beaten-track’ places to visit and features hints and tips for buying a Cotswold cottage.
