Travelling from Ireland next week with hubby and two 5 year old boys.We're renting a cottage near stroud. Are definitely going to make the trip to thomasland but other than that we're open to suggestion! Could anyone recommend some good family days out? Places to eat etc. We prefer the outdoors but not sure what the weather will be like so if anyone could suggest some rainy day activities as well that'd be great. You know yourself, once the kids are happy we're happy! Thanks a mill x
