After British-born, comedy actress Diz White found herself craving Yorkshire Pudding at every meal she knew her roots were pulling her back from Hollywood to her homeland.
It was time to buy a Cotswolds Cottage!
Her roller-coaster, often laugh-out-loud, search doubles as a travel-tour (travel guide included) that takes in every delight of the Cotswolds: historic sites, hog roasts, hiking the Cotswolds Way and pub walks with her husband, sometimes bagging the walk in favor of a slightly boozy lunch. There were highs, heartbreaks and cliff-hangers as she scrambled between Hollywood, taking every wacky acting job offered, and the Cotswolds, looking for a cottage bargain. On the way she was charged by a bull named Chasin’ Mason, auditioned for the hind end of a horse and was trampled by thirty children while wearing a bear suit. But the fondness she developed for this region and its vivid inhabitants gave her a feeling of community missing from her busy urban existence. Will this author’s dream become a reality? Find out in this witty love note to the Cotswolds.
