Visiting Kelmscott Manor is an atmospheric experience. Leave your car in the village, on one of the few days of the week when the Manor is open (Wednesday or Saturday) to walk to William Morris’s home. You’ll pass cottages, barns and meadows, an experience ‘old’ Cotswolds.

Model Village

Bourton on the Water is famously attractive - the word ‘cute is quite often used.

Cuter still is the Model Village, a 1/9th scale model of Bourton, built using Cotswold stone. It’s one of the Cotswolds’ most instagrammable locations, as you get to play the role of a giant for a while, striding past rows of cottages and churches. You can cross over the River Windrush in a single step. 

Snowshill Manor (NT)

Snowshill is a National Trust property, a complete ‘one-off’ and especially worth visiting on those days when the weather is a bit iffy. Essentially a medieval manor with an attractive garden, the whole thing was ennervated by a chap called Charles Wade. Wade began collecting at an early age and, over time, filled the house with a collection of objects from around the world. All this took place from the early 20th century onwards.
