Blenheim Palace and Woodstock
Bourton on the Water (model Village and Birdland)

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. www.dialhousehotel.com

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.

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.
