“Loved the Cotswolds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2004

It was well worth our while taking a trip out to the Cotswolds, while we were in England. A bit more sunshine would have made our days even better. Each of those town are unique, and the thached roof on some of those houses are really something.
I think my favourite one was Bourton-on-the-Water, but they were all lovely. I'd definetly go back there and spend more time.

“Bantam Tea Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2003

The Bantam Tea Room in Chipping Campden serves the best scones we had in the UK. They also had very tasty desserts. They have a B&B upstairs. We didn't stay there this time but we will if we come back. If you are near Chipping Campden don't miss Hidcote Gardens and Kiftsgate Court Garden. Even a non-gardener would enjoy them.

“Car daytrip through the Costwalds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2002

Highlights: Drive through twisty, narrow glens to Owlpen Manor: walking a little of the Costwold Way trail from gate just east of Haresfield Beacon(lookout point), close to Standish; arriving on foot at Lower Slaughter from Burton-on the Water; chatting with a local for lunch at a supermarket in Stroud. Advice: Get a really good map, you need the details to traverse and make connections along the tiny roads. Avoid Cheltenham suburbs unless you're going there on purpose. Tetley is an attractive market town. If you cannot find a late lunch in Stroud, go to the Waitrose supermarket where they have parking and a little lunch area. Stop in Painswick to see it; you can't get a feel just driving through. Lovely tea-room/cafes in Burton but the town is very touristy. Two very nice-looking hotels in Lower Slaughter. To really get away from it all, stay at Owlpen Manor. We did this as a day trip from Bath and did not have too much problem with driving on the "wrong" side.
