cotswolds and cambridge? Is my geography really bad or are these quite a long way apart?

I guess that they are if you're walking.

guddy · 07/07/2003 15:20

It is too far isnt it?

But seriously, there's so many places to visit in the Cotswolds its hard to know where to start -
Blenheim Palace and Woodstock
Bourton on the Water (model Village and Birdland)
The Slaughters (scenic)
The Cotswold Wildlife Park
Stow on the Wold
Bibury (scenic)

I stayed in a lovely hotel in Bourton on the Water the other week (for work sadly). It is called the Dial House Hotel, very reasonable for what it was.

The staff were wonderful and the food delicious (if a bit expensive, I would ask for an all-in rate included in the room)

Cotswold farm park - between Lower Slaughter and Guiting Power. HIGHLY recommended!!!

Bourton in the Water houses the original Brum in their museum. Also, just about a 5 minute walk from the centre, there is a nice wildfowl park if I remember correctly, and a maze with clues to help you get to the end.

all the cotswolds is lovely. If you wanted to go to a city aswell wouldnt Cheltenham be closer?

Theres a steam railway at Toddington which is here on the map. (look for the arrow!) You can also see Guiting Power (SE abit)for the Cotswold Farm Park , Bourton on the Water (SE abit more!) for Brum, Birdland, Model village.

Another vote for Cotswold Farm Park. We used to live nearby, and agree with all the suggestions here, but Cotswold Farm Park definitely gets top vote.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
Will definitely visit bourton on the water.
Cotswold farm sounds familiar to Park hall in shropshire,i live quite close to it.
anyway will let all you guys know about it.
Thanks again.
