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!

We stayed at Stag Lodge, the new addition to The White Hart next door which comprises 13 individually designed rooms.

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!
