I'll be in Moreton-in-Marsh for 4 days in July. I want to use it as a base for visiting the Cotswolds. Any advice you have for things to see, where to eat, etc. would be appreciated. I already have my B&B booked. I'd like to do some walking between towns but also take the bus or train to locations. Which Great Houses are the best in the area? Thanks for the help.
Elizabeth, I understand the walk between Upper and Lower Slaughter is interesting. Plus, I've read that there are good photo opportunities if you have a car to drive through the Cotswolds. Do a Google search on the Cotswolds and you will find a lot of information.
We, too, plan to go this summer after falling in love with Chipping Campden. There was a side street there with lovely golden native stone homes topped with thatched roofs and beautiful flowers gardens in the front.
Sorry to disagree with Kent but the train that goes to Worcester on the First Great Western Rail line makes a a few stops in small Cotswold villages other than Moreton-in-Marsh. One place is Honeybourne. If you go to www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk and click on
timetables, you will see a link for the London-WOrcester line. This opens a pdf and you will see the names of the places this train stops at. But of course you have to take a local train or else the train will whiz onto Worcester! There are also local buses. Have you googled Moreton, etc.? I always find doing this my best source of local information.
I have found a link with local bus info for the northern Cotswolds which Moreton is in.
I searched on Google for Cotswold bus info. Good luck.
