If you live in one of the Park Homes for Sale in Gloucestershire such as those designed for the over 50s such as http://www.parkhomelife.com/our-parks/orchard-park/ you are probably already aware of the beauty of Gloucestershire as a county. With sprawling landscapes and wonderful architecture there are many reasons why people want to move to the region.

It is not only those who live in the area that are impressed by its beauty. Authors from all ages have been influenced by Gloucestershire as a region. Here are a few for you to take a look through.

Jane Austen – Austen was greatly influenced by the village of Adlestrop in the Cotswolds. She often stayed here with her cousins and it influenced the fictional places in her book. Parsonage House where her cousins lived is thought to have been the inspiration behind Mansfield Park. She was also a fan of the architecture that can be found in Bath and this is reflected in her works – Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.

Lewis Carroll Рhaving spent a lot of his time in Stow-on-the-Wold, Carroll drew inspiration from the area for his works as well as basing some of the character Alice from his book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, on the daughter of his close friend Reverend Edward Litton who was the Rector of a church in Stow.
