The Cotswolds have to be one of the most stunning parts of England to visit and the Cotswold Valley is up there with the best. The Queen of the Cotswolds in Painswick, just 2 miles away, along the A46, where you can find the oldest Post Office in England, a churchyard that has the famous yew trees where there are either 101 or 99 but the hundredth will not grow! The Painswick Rococo Gardens nestles in one valley and Laurie Lees Cider with Rosie's Slad Valley is behind. There are numerous delightful villages tucked away such as Bisley with its famous Bear Inn and overnight old victorian open jail or Sheepscombe and the Butchers Arms Pub. Cheltenham and the Race course is not far away and Stroud with it's Saturday Market is a must for any tourist, especially as it's an award winner. The Bird & Deer Park has pride of place in one of the most lovely, unspoilt valleys in the area and is graced with Follies and Fowl.
