South Cotswolds this time? Any advice?

Jump to last reply

We are planning our third visit to England for July 2013.

First year(in The Cotswolds) we stayed in Snowshill on a sheep farm. We loved everything about our stay. Visited Broadway, Bourton on the Water, the Slaughters, Stanton and Stanway. Also the Lavendar fields and Blenheim(not a big fan of Blenheim). We are mainly interested in long walks. 2nd year we were unable to venture that far west.(were in Suffolk and Sussex). The Cotswolds was our favorite area and we never seemed to experience the hoards of tourists that are so often mentioned(except at Blenheim).

This year we want to return, but perhaps visit some of the southern villages. Painswick looks like a terrific base, and maybe from there we can venture down to Bibury and Castle Combe.
Any suggestions on other places to stay or visit? We're thinking 3 or four nights, and will be coming from a couple nights in Bath. Is Lacock not too far? Is it even considered a Cotswolds village?
Thanks!
