Weekend Away

A few weeks ago the family - eight of us in total -went to the Cotswolds - to celebrate wedding anniversaries and birthdays for us all - a beautiful part of our country - we stayed in the Teachers House in   Great Wolford - close to Moreton on Marsh and Stow on the Wold -the house was  a dream and full of character at every turn.

 We had never been to that area before and now will definitely return --  click on the pic to read the signpost names
Our house for the weekend was the Teachers House - secreted away in a tiny
village Great Wolford  quite close to the church - with footpaths winding in between the picture book houses and gardens -
Wonderful old houses built with Cotswold stone - with fantastic gardens
I loved this old barn so much that I have used it in my header as well !! our room overlooked it and we watched the swallows darting to and fro early morning so relaxing
The weekend flew by amidst barbecues - meals out and family stuff a lovely wind down and a time to remember - we moved on from the Cotswolds and spent some time in Oxford calling at Hidcote gardens on the way ( another blog I think!) - on the way home we stopped off at Burford for a wander round - another chocolate box village if you know the saying - its claim to fame is that it is the gateway to the Cotswolds and it really is a charming little village sitting on the side of a hill - if you ever get in that area it is certainly a place to stopover- amazing shops and tea shops I am posting pics of the delicatessen

I found it fascinating. -wishing you all a very good week - Jane
