Cotswold Villages: Bourton-on-the-Water & Lower Slaughter

The Spring weather this year has been glorious so far! Therefore, to make the most of this unexpected sun, my friends and I spent the day exploring some of the picturesque villages in The Cotswolds.

We started our day by walking the streets and bridges of Bourton-On-The-Water.

It got very busy, very quickly. But since we’d arrived early, I took opportunity to snap as many photographs as possible before the crowds descended.

Bourton looked lovely with the little stream, Cotswold Stone buildings, children and dogs playing in the water and pretty flowers in bloom.

We dipped in and out of the cute gift shops and stopped for cake at The Chestnut Tree Tea Rooms . Nikki had a slice of Lemon Drizzle Cake and Jodie and I devoured cream scones, which were warm and utterly delicious!

Afterwards, we took a 5 minute drive to the beautiful village of Lower Slaughter.

It’s smaller than Bourton and much quieter. These two things make it the perfect place if you’re wanting the full Cotswold feel.

After parking up and wandering through the back streets, we came to the historic The Old Mill and stream that runs through the village.

After we’d finished our exploring, we settled on the grass outside The Slaughters Country Inn to soak up the sunshine. We also enjoyed cold steins of Old Mout Cider whilst chattering away.
