Quaint English Places in the Cotswolds


Chipping Camden

Market Place

River Eye

Lower Slaughter


During the summer holiday Alessio and I visited the Cotswold district along with my parents for one week. It was a glorious week weather wise as there was a heatwave, making it unbelievably too hot for us!!

We visited and saw many places, since we hired a car it made it easier to visit small villages and towns, which would have proved to difficult with public transport.

There are lots of lovely villages and towns in the Cotswolds and we saw some of them, the first one was only a quick stop and walkaround. The small pretty village of Stanton which had delightful houses to ponder and a lovely small church.

We then continued our trip to visit Hidcote Manor House which I will post about another time, then afterwards we stopped in Chipping Camden. This was also a lovely small market town and we had a delicious lunch. There are plenty of shops to browse around, I managed to buy a bracelet.

Another day we stopped off at Lower Slaughter which has the river Eye running through it, this small village was certainly very beautiful and we had lunch at The Slaughter Inn. We visited the church and walked along the river banks and came across a watermill. Alessio feeling rather hot decided to paddle in the river, he then convinced my father also. They were joined by a four legged friend who also thought it was too dam hot and need cooling down.
