A short break in the Cotswolds

We recently spent a few days in the Cotswolds, a beautiful area in western England.

The Cotswolds are home to some of the most picturesque villages in the country. Here are some of my best pictures from our travels. All the villages featured below are a short drive from each other (although sometimes down rather small roads!). The links will take you to more information on each of the places we visited.

Afternoon tea and the Cotswolds

We’ve just got back from a few days in the Cotswolds (a very picturesque part of western England – see photos at the end of this post!).

On our way to the Cotswolds we made a short stop in Stratford Upon Avon and were lucky enough to stumble across Hobsons Patisseries and their giant scones, whose halves are separated by amazing towers of cream.

Stratford Upon Avon is famous as the birthplace of Shakespeare. But soaking in all the local history can be exhausting and may help you to work up an appetite. Here are some of your other options should you feel peckish:
