Get cosy in the Cotswolds

You and Your Wedding - - Glorious Getaways -

With pretty stone cot­tages, wind­ing coun­try lanes and plenty of cosy coun­try pubs, the pic­turesque Cotswolds is the ideal mi­cro road trip des­ti­na­tion.

Start your trip at the chic-yethomely Dormy House, just min­utes from the beau­ti­ful vil­lage of Broad­way. Book into the hot tub suite for the sheer in­dul­gence, or spend the night at its pop-up alpine cabin, but not be­fore you’ve eaten your way through the menu at The Pot­ting Shed – the ho­tel’s coun­try house restau­rant. Panoramic views of the Cotswold Hills, an award­win­ning spa, and a stroll through the man­i­cured gar­dens should see you through the next morn­ing, then pick up a lux­ury pic­nic ham­per from the kitchen and set out to ex­plore some of the area’s quaint vil­lages. Wind your way through Chip­ping Cam­p­den (stop off for a stroll along its beau­ti­ful 14th-cen­tury high street and the 17th-cen­tury mar­ket­place), be­fore pootling through More­ton-in-marsh, Stow-on-the-wold, Lower and Up­per Slaugh­ter and Bour­ton-on­the-wa­ter, and you’ll soon feel as whole­some as a red set­ter on a brac­ing coun­try walk. Spend the night in North­leach, be­fore tak­ing the next day to wend your way through the lovely lit­tle vil­lages of Abling­ton, Bibury, Minch­in­hamp­ton and Slad. <RX·OO ÀQLVK ZKHUH \RX VWDUWHG at Dormy House, per­fect for lazy late af­ter­noon lunch, and a much-de­served bot­tle of mer­lot, once you’ve handed the car keys back, of course.
