My mom and I took the train out to the Cotswolds from London on Tuesday for a quick visit, and had such a great time. Justin and I visited the area a year and a half ago and I absolutely fell in love with the Cotswolds and had been dying to go back ever since. I’m happy to report that the area and the two places I wanted to revisit were just as amazing as I remembered.
Our first stop was The Wild Rabbit, the cutest little inn and pub, where we ordered some coffee and settled into cozy chairs to play scrabble by the fireplace for an hour or so. After we finished up there we started the thirty minute walk along a kind of scary country road (there was probably some sort of cute pathway through a farm that we just didn’t know about) towards Daylesford Farm, where we had lunch (cottage pie for me and a lamb tagine for my mom) and browsed the market and flower shop and oohed and aahed at their gorgeous cookery school. I’d love to spend a few days there, checking out the spa and taking cooking and flower arranging classes, wouldn’t that be fun?
After we finished up with lunch we grabbed brownies to go and headed back to London on the train, happy from a perfect (but too short!) afternoon spent in the country. I have some London photos to share in the next few days as well, so stay tuned. Have a good day, and I promise to be a better/more consistent blogger again soon!
