The Cotswolds… a weekend away leads to planning our retirement… for real. A few weeks ago me & the hubs took a little spur of the moment trip to beautiful Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds & it was too pretty not to share!
Beautifully decorated with great attention to detail our room was cosy, comfortable & even had a roll top bath in the room!
As the reason we were getting away was mainly for a little r&r we spent most of our time wandering around Stow on the Wold, shopping in the lovely little shops & boutiques & eating & drinking… oh take me back!
Huffkins was the perfect place for breakfast, just a little stroll across the road & filled with delicious baked treats! Then we mooched around the shops, indulging in some goodies from The Cotswold Chocolate Company & The Cotswold Cheese Company… a little running theme! We stumbled upon a gorgeous little antiques centre which had a beautiful secluded garden out the back & snapped up a lovely antique platter & the husband didn’t even take much convincing, score!
Another delightful discovery was Vintage & Paint which does exactly what it says on the tin. Full to the brim with cool vintage finds, how I didn’t spend all my pennies on leather bags, lamps & wicker baskets I don’t know…
After a little nap – well when on holiday right?! – we got ourselves ready for dinner. Wandering around the town we soon discovered that we might have a problem as everywhere was pretty chock full but we were lucky to sneak a table for some delicious grub before returning to The White Hart for a few drinks before bed.
All in all it was just what we needed, the perfect getaway from real life in beautiful surroundings with yummy food & drink. We may have spent a large proportion of our time discussing how we could move to the Stow on the Wold but who could blame us!
Have a great weekend peeps!
