Stow on the Wold
Nestled just below Stow on the Wold, the village of Lower Swell has a vibrant community spirit. The village pub serves beer from the Donnington brewery based a mile up the road (worth a walk to for it's beautiful setting). Various buildings in the village and the gardens of Abbotswood House (open at certain times of the year) were designed by Edwin Lutyens.
Naunton Downs golf course is approx 3 miles away and the area is home to several national hunt trainers with Cheltenham and Stratford racecourses a short car ride away. Maybe take in a play at the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
If retail therapy is more your style the surrounding Cotswold towns have a multitude of individual shops, Stow is renown amongst antique lovers and Cheltenham is famous for it's Promenade. Gloucester Quays Designer outlet is a short drive away.
There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the area to satisfy everyone's appetite. Don't want to eat out every night? There are several takeaways in nearby Stow or why not have a BBQ in the summer while sipping a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the horizon..
The area has something for everyone. For those who love visiting gardens Abbotswood is a must (dates of opening can be supplied). A little further afield are Hidcote Manor Gardens, Batsford Arboretum and Snowshill Manor to name but a few. Or maybe just dabble your feet in the river Windrush at Upper or Lower Slaughter.
To keep the little ones entertained (and maybe big ones too!) head towards the Cotswold Farm Park just up the road (Adam's Farm on Countryfile), visit Birdland, the Motor Museum and the Model Village at Bourton on the Water. Giraffes are the latest inhabitants of the Cotswold Wildlife Park at Burford. For those a little more older and adventurous why not try jet skiing or aerial water skiing at the Cotswold Water Park. Sudley Castle in Winchcombe (home of Katherine Parr) is a historical adventure for all ages.
Twice a year (May and October) Stow on the Wold hosts the colourful gypsy horsefair which is an experience not to be missed! Cheltenham is also famous for it's numerous festivals, jazz, literature, music and of course the annual national hunt festival. There is always someone willing to give you a tip in the local pub!
