Even on a cold grey day at the end of a British winter, the Cotswolds looks beautiful.
Ok, I might be a bit biased, but our visitors agree!
We get bookings all year round, not just during the summer – and our winter visitors are as enchanted with the area as our summer ones. Many London tourists love our trip too because it’s a great day trip from London. You can arrive from Paddington at Moreton-In-Marsh where we’ll pick you up for the day.
This week I’ve been visiting one of my favourite villages which has a population of just 500 people.
For a tiny village, it has a huge range of amenities, events and activities taking place.
What I love most about it, is how typically English it is.
There is a village green with the River Evenlode running through it where you can sit on a warm day.
The river always has ducks on it, so much so, there is a road sign which tells motorists that ducks could be crossing the road!
I’ve written about this place before, but it deserves another post.
As you might have gathered, I’m in Bledington again.
The village has a popular pub called the Kings Head Inn which the Sunday Times described as “The classic English country pub that one always hopes to find but seldom does”. You can book a room overlooking the green and enjoy the peace and relaxation of the area whilst sampling a taste of country life.
Bledington is a great place to explore the Cotswolds from. Kingham is not far away and you’ll find the market town of Stow on the Wold just a short drive. This means you can enjoy the best of both worlds – the hustle and bustle of Stow on market day and the peaceful countryside in Bledington.
And there’s plenty to do in the area while you’re here. During April, for example, there’s The Cotswolds Art & Antiques Dealers’ Association Fair, Broadway Arts Festival Coffee Morning, Paxford Point to Point, as well as various exhibitions by artists at The Old Silk Mill in Chipping Campden.
If you’d like to visit picturesque villages in the Cotswolds for yourself, book your tour now! We’ll take you on a guided day tour of the North Cotswolds. Where we take you is a secret, but throughout the day you’ll also be invited back to our own private home for coffee and pastries, a buffet lunch and traditional English cream tea. Whether you’re staying in the area or are looking for a day trip from London, we’d love to meet you!
