Feb half term 2013 – The Cotswolds, night one- Winchcombe

I’m writing this from the campsite on the first night of our four night trip. We left Norfolk at 9 this morning and had a long journey to get here, but my, is it worth it. Neither of us have been to this part of the country before, and we fell in love as soon as we got onto the B road after Buckingham. Sat nag bought us a long winded route but we soon forgave her as we winded our way through the pretty little villages. We eventually arrived at our destination, Winchcombe just before 2. We had a walk planned so grabbed a quick cuppa and headed on our way. What a quaint little place Winchcombe is. We enjoyed a lovely 6 mile walk in glorious sunshine – the daffs are poking out their heads, spring is definitely in the air!

We walked up a large hill (neither of us had anticipated that the Cotswolds were hilly… Durrrrrr) and at the top enjoyed the views down to the town. There is a lovely castle here, and lots of antiques shops and specialist shops to wander around.

We are pitched at a caravan club site tonight – called Pinnock Wood Farm- it was almost dark when we arrived, but the views look promising for the morning, the weather forcast is good and we are heading to Broadway tomorrow, where we will meet Krystle and do a walk to see the tower.

Spag Bol for tea tonight, we are all tucked in, the wind is blowing a gale, but we are warm and the gin is flowing and therefore life is good! 🙂
