Bourton-on-the-Water

Regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England, Bourton on the Water has a unique appeal to visitors and residents alike, there is plenty to see and do with a wealth of attractions and shops, restaurants and tea rooms, or simply for you to enjoy some tranquil time by the River Windrush with its beautiful bridges throughout.

 

Standing back from the river are traditional Cotswolds buildings, many of which are now tourist shops for the day-trippers and visitors. Bourton-on-the-Water has been described as the 'Little Venice' of the Cotswolds and is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region being serviced by the many shops, cafe's, and attractions.

 

Stow on the Wold

Follow the Stow Town Trail to discover the story behind many of the oldest buildings in the town, and explore the narrow stone alleyways or chures, which were traditionally used for herding and counting sheep on their way to market. For a really in depth guide to Stow's history, rent an iPod from GO-STOW and listen to the story of Stow and its role in the English Civil War.

 

Stow is a famous centre for antiques  and art, so take the opportunity to explore the many antique shops and art galleries. The town's heart is the fine market square, complete with its Market Cross – a reminder to traders to trade fairly under the sight of God. In the southeast corner, Digbeth Street leads towards the Royalist Hotel, listed in the Guinness Book of Records as England's oldest Inn (947 AD). Enjoy a traditional Cotswold cream tea in one of the town's many cafes, and buy locally produced cheese and meat from one of the two fine delicatessens on Digbeth Street or the excellent butcher's shop, Lambournes.
