A lovely sunny weekend exploring the honey coloured villages and towns of the Cotswolds. I wish I had some photos to show you of the magical cottage gardens we saw. There seems to be a big hollyhock fan club. They were everywhere. There also seems to be lots of old fashioned sweet shops with jars upon jars of goodies. I hope my dentist is not reading this.
Usually before I go away I do loads of research to make sure we’re not missing anything but this time we went without a clue of what we would find and left it all to chance. Very relaxing just wandering on a whim. It turned out that Hidcote was just down the road.
This huge garden is divided in lots of ‘rooms’ all with different characters. The mural below was a big surprise.
It’s hard to tell which is painting and which is part of the structure.
All in all a great weekend and there’s still so much of our fab country that I’ve never been too. Where is your favourite place for a weekend away?
