Although we spent the least amount of time in the Cotswolds during our recent vacation, I took three times as many pictures there as any place else! In an attempt not to bore you too much, I've tried to be selective. If you want more, come back tomorrow when my "Ten on the Tenth" post will feature more Cotswold beauty AND a blog give-away.
In the Cotswolds, we stayed in Chipping Campden, a beautiful little town with quaint scenery, wonderful pubs and some decent restaurants.
The highlight of the Cotswolds was hiking about along the various trails. Some were well marked thoroughfares; others required us to follow cryptic signs and climb over fences:
Along the way, we found sheep and flowers and wheat:
Our five mile hike (roundtrip) to Hidcote Gardens ended up being over seven miles because we got lost, but we did find some beautiful sites there
The next day we took a car ride over to Sudley Castle, where we found beautiful gardens and grounds and even a wooden bridge (for the scavenger hunt):
I could go on forever with pictures like these (but I won't - LOL!). Suffice it to say, we enjoyed our time wandering around the Cotswolds - a place so quaint and beautiful that Paul said "You expect to see Miss Marple walking out of a house at any minute."
Got any favorites in today's post?
