Stow on the Wold is only an hour from home but we definitely felt on holiday here.  The cottage is superbly equipped and very conveniently located for exploring.  We only had 4 days here but packed a lot in whilst still having time to relax.  The Cotswolds is a beautiful part of the UK.

– The Slaughters are very picturesque (take away ice cream from “The Old Mill” in Lower Slaughter, very nice).

– The Miniature Village at Bourton is cheap and fun for children.

– We had a very nice lunch at “The Plough” in Ford.  Pretty good fish & chips from Stow too (Greedy’s, Park Street).

– Cotswold Baguettes in Stow is good for an easy lunch and both “New England Coffee House” and “The Coffee House” served great barista-quality coffee.
