Based in Burford, how to spend our time

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

Our trip is fast approaching and I don't have a good handle on how to handle our three days in the Cotswolds, sigh.

We'll be in Bath 11,12,13 September; depart Bath for Burford on 14 September and stay there 3 nights (14, 15, 16). We will have a car and hopefully a functioning GPS! We're staying at the Lamb Inn.

I bought "The Rough Guide to the Cotswolds" and did lots of searching the forums and maps.

Must see's: Bourton-on-the-Water, Chipping Camden, a castle/stately home (or two or three!), husband is really interested in the Rollwright Stones

So ~very tentatively~ we're thinking the following: (I like to put a lot of things in the itinerary ~knowing~ that we will not see them all, It's OCD but I've come to accept that about myself, lol).

Bath to Burford: Castle Combe, Tetbury, Cirencester, Bibury (night #1 in Burford)

Burford back to Burford: Bourton-on-the-Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Sezincote House, Rollright Stones (night #2 in Burford)

Burford back to Burford: Chipping Camden, Hidcote Manor, Broadway (and Tower), Snowshill Manor, Winchcombe, Sudely Castle (night #3 in Burford)--

If you've been to all three of these castles/homes, Hidcote, Snowshill, Sudely, which was your favorite?--I know we can't see them all (we do plan on seeing Sezincote).

Burford to Heathrow (return car, spend night at a hotel, flight is 18/09 in the morning): Minster Lowell, Blenheim Palace, Oxford (night at LHR hotel).

Husband's 55th birthday is while we're in the Cotswolds. Appreciate any suggestions for a great dining experience to celebrate.

Thank you for your thoughts. NOLA
