Best Cotswold Towns

We're going to be in the Cotswolds for a day and a half and would like to know which towns are the best to visit on a one day drive. We'll be staying in Chipping Campden.

There are so many towns/villages/hamlets worth seeing & everyone has their opinion but I suggest Bourton on the Water (my favorite), Bibury, Stow on the Wold, The Slaughters, Snowshill, Stanton, Broadway, Burford to name a few. I highly suggest no less than 3 nights stay in the Cotswolds. It is our very favorite area in England & its beauty is outstanding. If we ever won the lottery I would buy a home there or at least visit every year.

I would agree with Stephanie on the places she named.
I would suggest that you put Bourton-on-the-Water (also, my favorite), Broadway, The Slaughters and Burford on the top of your list. When you are in Bourton-in-the-Water go to the Old New Inn to see the model village, this is a scale model of the village of Bourton-on-the-Water. If you are going towards Bath there is another beautiful village you should see, Castle Combe. The movie Dr. Doolittle was filmed there.
