I’m a little behind in posting about my England trip. Isabel is doing a much better job at it and I apologize if you are a reader of both of our blogs as many of our pictures are of the same things. So, if you are reading this post and are feeling a bit of déjà vu, that is why. Just one of the things that happens when two bloggers travel together.
Isabel had told me how much she loved The Cotswolds when she lived in England years ago. The first thing to come to mind for me was quaint villages with thatch roofed cottages. Our first stop of the day was to a village called Stow on the Wold. It was raining quite a bit that day, but after finding a little shop to buy umbrellas, we are all set.
Isabel and I, voted this cottage our favorite in Stow on the Wold. Maybe our favorite cottage the entire trip, but that’s like asking which of your children are your favorite, impossible!
We ventured on to a sweet village called Broadway.
This picture would have been perfect if that dumpster wasn’t hanging out in front. This was a surgeon’s place of business.
While in Broadway, we met a man out walking his dog, who told us about a little place nearby that they filmed part of the movie“Four Weddings and a Funeral.” Snowshill was a quaint little “hamlet” with a pub, church and several houses.
Our next destination was Stratford Upon Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare.
Couldn’t resist taking a picture of this pink house, right across the street from Shakespeare’s Son-in-law’s house (above)
After driving a bit, we decided to find a place to spend the night. This time we landed at the Crewe Arms Hotel in Keele. Not as charming as our previous accommodations, but perfectly clean and updated rooms with comfortable beds.
The next day we headed towards Manchester with a stop in the village of Buxton. I’ll share some pictures of that soon.
Just got back yesterday from a mini road trip with my #1 girl. Found a few cute things that I’ll share with you on my next post.
