During the height of the season, the area gets packed with tourists exploring the region’s numerous stately homes, thatched cottages, historic churches, and attractive stone-built villages. The wood trade brought wealth and prosperity to this area centuries ago, and the region still proudly boasts hundreds of notable buildings constructed during the Middle Ages.
