The Cotswolds is probably what a lot of people think of when they think of the English countryside. An area with beautiful landscapes, lovely towns and villages and thatched roofs.
We stayed in a lovely B and B called the Bird in Hand near Witney for the weekend. It had 16 unique rooms and a lovely restaurant attached.
Bird In Hand Inn:
We visited several towns and villages during our stay. We visited Burford, where we looked at shops along the High street and a cafe. On Saturday we had breakfast at the Inn and then visited Blenheim Palace in Woodstock. It is a UNESCO world heritage site. The grounds are equally as lovely as the palace. If we had more time I would have done one of the walks available throughout the grounds.
Blenheim Palace and Gardens:
We went to Broughton on the Water, a lovely quaint English tourist spot with shops and a creek running through it.
I had my first Cornish Pasty here, so tasty!
