Cotswold caper - 10 August 2008

Waddesdon ManorToday was the better of the two weekend days, weather wise, so we planned a sightseeing tour of the Cotswolds for John & Linda. We began with a visit to Waddesdon Manor, the jewel in the National Trust crown. After that we spent an hour sitting on the roadside waiting forBourton on the Water the AA man to rig up a temporary throttle cable after our one suddenly snapped.

Back on the road again we headed for Chipping Campden and the Badgers Hall to let our guests enjoy the wicked delights of the best cream teas in the UK. Then it was all the usual highlights of Croquet at Hidcote Manor GardensUpper and Lower Slaughter, Broadway, Moreton on the Marsh, Bourton on the Water, Burford, Stanton and so forth, with a quick side trip to Hidcote Manor Gardens for a spot of croquet before finding a pub for dinner and heading home, tired but well satisfied after a full day.
