The Spring weather this year has been glorious so far & to make the most of this unexpected sun, my friends and I spent a few hours 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 busy quickly but having arrived early, I took opportunity to snap as many photographs as I could 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, which makes it the perfect place to go if you’re wanting to get 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.
Everything looked so pretty and quaint!
We had a lovely day adventuring our local area; I wonder where we’ll be going to next…
