Old England

There has been a little family trip this week (without me!) to the Cotswold's which is a very pretty and old part of England. Apparently you could have taken dogs to the hotel and I would have been good, honest...

This is Bourton-on-the-Water where they stayed the night.


There is a river that runs through the village which is wide but quite shallow. The local vilagers hold a game of football in it each year.


They also went to Stow-on the-Wold. This hotel there called The Royalist, that says it is the oldest hotel in England and has a sign saying 947AD. Now that's old!


This is the town & square with an old stone cross in the middle.


And finally this a village called Bidbury. These are some of its 17th century weavers cottages.


I bet they could tell some stories.

Fantastic pictures! That looks like such a wonderful trip. Too bad you didn't get to go :) You would have loved to play in that water too I'll bet!

Kisses,

947AD. That's even older than I am! Your English villages are so terrific. I'll have to see them through your blog since I'll never get there. Loved your pics!

Had no dog for several years. Thought we were too old but weakening!
