My Hubby and I recently visited the Cotswolds for a long weekend, and I loved every minute of it! You may have caught my first post about it here, but if not, I'm showing you a little bit more of where we explored on our second day
After leaving Cirencester we headed to this beautiful little village Bourton-On-The-Water which I actually found whilst googling places to visit when in the Cotswolds, I'm SO pleased I stumbled upon it!
Once parked up our first stop was this rather cute model village of the village. It was really quite funny walking around it feel like a giant... but was a great way for us to see where we wanted to go, the most visual map you could ask for!
I rather liked the look of this mansion... looking rather adoringly!
We soon headed on to explore the cutest little streets and of course stopped at this quaint little sweet shop for chocolate covered peanuts and brazil nuts. This is always mine and Charlies sweet of choice!
The river running through the middle of the village was beautiful. So many people wiht their children gathered to feed the ducks which made me think I would love to come back here one day in the future!
Bourton-On-The-Water is also far from short of tea rooms! We went to and from a few for a good 10 minutes before finally deciding on a place to eat. All topped off with an ice cream... yes it was about 8 degrees... but hey, when on holiday!
We also passed the 'Cotswold Candlemakers' which we of course popped in to! They had loads of gorgeou goodies in there (so good for presents) I bought two little metal reindeer shaped tea light holders for my Mum. At the back of the shop was the owner him self pouring candles as we watched on! Was so nice to see... he said almost everything in the shop was hand made.
We soon decided we had done enough exploring and headed to our next hotel 'The Wheatsheaf Inn' and ohhh what a treat it was!
Welcomed by a roaring fire, we were soon taken to our room which was just BEAUTIFUL! I have a thing about roll top baths and this one didn't fail to please. With an array of 100 Acres products to use and trays of tea just a call away, we were both instantly relaxed and I couldn't have enjoyed the afternoon any more.
I wish I could teleport myself back in to this bath immediately! Such a treat and would absolutely love to visit again... or atleast try some of the other hotels in this chain.
All in all a rather splendid trip to the Cotswolds and a big tick off the list! All to soon we headed home sweet home and at least I have some wonderful pics to remember the trip by.
