Easter In The Cotswolds

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Our 2009 camping season got underway at the Easter weekend. We took a couple of extra days at either end to give ourselves 5 days away in The Cotswolds. We’ve passed through before but this time we’ve stopped to see this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in more detail.

We based ourselves at Folly Farm Camp Site for the duration of our trip. It was pleasantly non-commercial but it was busy. Unfortunately the caravans and campervans were only allowed in a central area, screened by trees due to planning restrictions, which meant the views weren’t as good as from the tent field. On balance it was a great location from which to explore The Cotswolds.

We started with the tourist honey-pot of Bourton-on-the-Water with it’s pretty bridges, but much prefered the medieval villages hidden away down the twisting back roads. Visiting the remains of two well preserved Roman villa was a highlight of the trip, as were the views on a circular drive we took starting and ending at Crickley Hill lookout.
