Which base in the Cotswolds

Jump to last reply

Hubby and I are planning on spending 4 days visiting the Cotswolds in early July. We would like suggestions for which village to stay in as a base. We plan on hiring a car for our travels from London. I have read much on this forum but am still confused.

We prefer to base ourselves in a town with a choice of eating places and some shops, so possibly a bit more "commercial" . I know some Fodorites suggest to stay in quieter villages, but we prefer to walk around in the evenings, rather than drive to dinner. We will use the days for walking and driving.

We are 63 and 65, do not have an aversion to seeing other tourists (after all we are also tourists) and would like to know which place to stay in. Also are we better off just choosing one village as our base or moving between towns. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
