Gloucester, England

Another day of touring the Cotswolds

We started our day in the quaint and quiet village of Painswick. We enjoyed a lovely stroll through this pretty village before stopping for coffee at the only coffee place in town! The coffee shop had two of Rod Stewart’s gold albums hanging on its wall.
Then we drove through Stoud before stopping in Cirencester for a quick walk around. Cirencester is considered the capital of the Cotswolds.
We enjoyed more of the lovely Cotswolds countryside before stopping in Fairford for a light lunch. Then it was a quick drive to Bibury which is considered one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds. We meandered through the little village and across a bridge to the much photographed Arlington Row. These honey-coloured seventeenth century stone cottages with steeply pitched roofs, once housed weavers who supplied cloth to a nearby mill.
Our visit to the lovely little towns and villages of the Cotswolds has been truly memorable.
