I live just on the outskirts of the Cotswolds and we are lucky enough to have a number of National Trust properties relatively close by and have some fantastic places to visit. It's great just being able to pop along when a day presents it'self and we find ourselves at a loose end. One of our favourite haunts is Coughton Court, a beautiful old Tudor House that lies within some stunning gardens.
It's a great day out, you can go along and walk around the gardens which is a lovely day no matter the time of year. You can even visit the two churches that are within the grounds of the house which is something I highly recommend doing.
I do love living near the Cotswolds as there is always something going on, always somewhere to go so it is hard to ever get bored. Leo loves his visits around the countryside, he always talks about his many adventures and I love that we can take him to so many amazing places and show him the culture that we are so lucky to live around. People travel from all over the world to see the beauty that nests in the heart of the Cotswolds, and I have to say that there was a time I wondered why people flocked to the countryside and admired the scenery. Then I traveled to New York where I marveled at the city landscape and the high rise skyscrapers, it was only when I got home that it all made sense and suddenly I had a new found appreciation for our Cotswold Stone and vast areas of green splendor.
