Trip to Cotswolds

Jump to last reply

I'm currently in London and planning Cotswolds as my next stop. I hope I can get few suggestions on some of my concerns. I've not made plans for car rental. I understand that it might be a little tough for Cotswolds but I'm not entirely ruling out this possibility either. For the purpose of this discussion, shall we assume that I'll be using the public transport.

1. Before going to Cotswolds I'm thinking of going to Oxford. Does it result in much time and cost savings if I were to proceed to Cotswolds from Oxford directly, which I might have to make some arrangements for baggage storage. Alternatively I can make it a day trip from London too before heading to Cotswolds the day after.

2. I've read up some of the resources given in few posts but still cannot decide which microtown to live in. My main concern would be ease of travel using public transport to the other sights so the town should be fairly well connected. I'll be moving on to Bath after Cotswolds if this is a factor. Second factor would be the surrounding sights. We've been travelling in Europe for more than a month now; with this bring our last leg, we are 'retiring' into a slower pace so the surroundings need not be jam packed with activities but enough to keep us occupied on days where we decide to head out will be nice. We'll be there for five nights or so. (silly question but in these microtowns there are supermarkets like tesco, sainsbury etc around right as we would like to do our own cooking.)
