We live in the ancient village of Highworth on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is a good start out point for visiting the scenic town of Burford and Burton-On-The-Water also known as little Venice of the COTSWOLDS. Stow-On-The-Wold is a pretty old town and The Slaughters are villages of natural beauty.The Cotswold Water Park is ideal for boating and Wind surfing. Spend a day at the beach, not by the sea but by a lake.This is the largest inland beach in the country and is surrounded by 150 lakes.Near Burford is The Cotswold Wild Life Park and Gardens.This houses rare wild animals from the near Continent. Lydiard Park is a beautiful historic estate on the western edge of Swindon with The Palladian House Church and Walled Garden set in 260 acres of Parkland. The childrens Play Café and Tea rooms make Lydiard Park a great Family destination for a family day out. We are situated midway between The City of Oxford famous for its fine architecture and The Old Roman City of Bath is only 45 minutes from here.There is easy access to Avebury and Stonehenge famous for its ancient stone circles. This area is also famous for CROP CIRCLES. Glastonbury is one of the sacred sights and is south of the City of Bath. In the town of Highworth you will find fine restaurants and pubs and is only a five minute walk away.Other places to visit are the STEAM RAILWAY MUSEUM in Swindon and the outlet village. Train Services on THE SWINDON & CRICKLADE STEAM RAILWAYS allows visitors to enjoy a Train ride on most weekdays and week-ends on THE VINTAGE STEAM TRAINS. The new track extention to Mouldon Hill will be opening shortly.. You will be made welcome and I hope you have a very plesant stay with us. We provide directions to the many nice places to visit in the area. Explore the Cotswold Water Park by bike. Bring your own or hire bikes through out the year and set off around lovely lanes and paths. Blunsdon Stadium 4 miles from here has a Speedway session twice weekly with famous international riders. Greyhound racing takes place twice weekly in that Stadium also. We are looking forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions...Please ask.More
