Vacation 2009 - day 10

April 30, 2009 - Cotswolds

up at 7am, breakfast at hotel, checked out and walked to Paddington station. Caught the Oxford train with no problems. Got into Oxford and picked up the rental car, a nice little Peugeot with auto transmission. It was starting to spit rain a little.

Made our way into the Cotswolds, with a few wrong turns on getting on the right freeways out of Oxford. Got to Stow-On-The-Wold and it was drizzling. Ate sandwiches in car, visited the TI office, walked around the town, stopping at various shops and down some side paths. Cute little town, but the rain is a damper.

Headed up to Moreton-In-Marsh. Stopped there to have tea, scones and bread pudding and walked around some. Less obviously touristy than Stow. Then off to the Manor Farm B&B in Weston-Sub-Edge. Turns out to be a very nice B&B, probably the nicest place we have stayed on this trip. Ate dinner at the Bell Inn in a neighbouring village - very expensive, not great food.
