What would you say to an evening spent in a medieval castle, which at one time had welcomed Henry VIII and Ann Boylen? Samantha has visions of royal grandeur at Thornbury Castle. Samantha wraps up her countryside escape in an area known as The Cotswolds - its villages and hamlets dot the hillsides side where sheep graze and pathways mark a 100-mile trail known as The Cotswold Way. Samantha takes to the road to share her favorite spots in the English countryside. Today, the heart of England has many modern day surprises that traveler's may not know about - well Samantha's prepared to unveil them all along the way.
