Day trip from Broadway

Hi all,

My sister, myself and a daughter each ( in their 20s' ) are spending 5 days in the Cotswolds. We've found a lovely self contained cottage in Broadway ( see my other post about whether the website we're booking through is legit!! ) and will have a car so planning to do day trips.

One day we'll head up to see Warwick Castle, Stratford Upon Avon but haven't really checked out a round trip route for that day yet.

Another day I was thinking of driving from Broadway to Stow-on-the-Wold, Burton on the Water, Northleach, Burford, Witney, Bladon, Woodstock ( Blenheim Palace ), Chipping Norton, Moreton in Marsh and back to Broadway.

On google maps this is a 2 hour 5 min drive so my question is.... is this a doable day trip?? Stopping for a few photos and look around most of the places we pass through as the whim takes us but I guess spending a few hours at Blenheim Palace.

We'll probably make it a full day.... say 8am to 5pm.

What do you think???

Yes it is perfectly do-able, I doubt if you would want to stop at every town or village on the way. Chipping Norton and Moreton in the Marsh aren't that photogenic, in my opinion.

I agree.

Snowshill, Guiting Power and Upper and Lower Slaughter are far more photogenic and along the same route as your journey.

Thanks... Sometimes the times on Google maps aren't reflective of actual driving times... Will check out other towns you suggested.

You'll need a full day just for Blenheim palace.

You might check out Hidcote Gardens, much closer to Broadway.
