Last month I visited the South West of England on holiday. I've not had a chance to post photos, and for those of you who like quintessentially English villages - here's a snapshot of a tour of the Cotswolds (click on the images to see larger versions)! I'd met up with my older sister and one of my nephews in the wonderful city of Bath and I'll share some photos of that another time. But one day we took a tour run by Lion Tours in a mini-bus around some of the lovely villages.
First stop Castle Combe....
|A dog enjoying a river run!|
|Some old slates for a renovation project|
Our guide knew the "lady of the house" so we were shown round her lovely garden. You can see the roof in the distance which was being repaired.
|I LOVE this porch decoration|
|The main street in Castle Combe|
|You would have to duck going through this door!|
|I love the rooftops....|
|An old sign below this window|
|And the old Market Cross|
|I love the curve of this building|
|A stained glass window designed by William Morris|
|The Abbey with ruins showing it was much larger once.|
|Arlington Row, Bibury|
And another quintessential English Cottage with roses!
And finally we called in at Tetbury with it's 17th Century Market Hall
And some rather fine Georgian houses...
So I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Cotswolds too. Um..... is now a good time to say I'm off on my travels again shortly!
