Cotswolds ,where for 2 nights

Hi With only two days spare for the last week of May, somewhere in the Cotwolds seems a likely choice. The previous day we will be in Cambridge (including Duxford's first flying day of the year). Following Cotwolds ??, a day in Bath, before four days in London.
If anyone has suggestions,villages and B&Bs that would be great. We will have a car . thanks in advance.

Hello Gerard,
I would suggest either Stow on the Wold or Chipping Campden, with a slight preference for Stow. It is a nice central location for a day of driving. Bath is a good choice, but I would prefer a little more time in the Cotswolds and leave Bath for another trip. Bath is quite interesting though. The Cotswold villages are intriguing. Enjoy your trip.

This will be the last week of 7 weeks so the 2 days are just that 2 days. While our plans are for more travel, next time (2015) will not be England and Ireland. many thanks for your suggestions regards Gerard

Gerard, I would also suggest Stow-on-the-Wold for your stay in the Cotswolds. It's a picturesque smaller town and it makes a convenient base for that area. I stayed at the Old Stocks Hotel, so I can't suggest any B&B's. Happy travels!

Here's a suggestion: when leaving Cambridge, drive to Bletchley (WWII code breakers) and tour. From there drive to Corsham (southern Cotswilds) and stay at the Park Farm Barn (we stayed there and loved it). It's about 10 minutes to Lacock (very picturesque village with great pub) and close to Bath. It's an easy trip from there back to London.

I would concur with Thomas. While Bath is nice, given just two days in the Cotswolds and one day in Bath, with the attendant drive between, I would suggest staying in the Cotswolds area. There are so many other things to see, close at hand. There are Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Coventry, Kennilworth, Warwick, and Stratford-upon-Avon.

If you have time whilst in the Cotswolds, I'd recommend visiting Stanway, both for the house and a look at the cricket pavilion and pitch.
