The Northern Cotswolds

The Malt House

We left London on Thursday morning and took the train to Moreton-in-Marsh, picked up a car, and drove to Chipping Camden. We had lunch at the Hicks and then traveled to Broad Campden to the Malt House where we stayed for the night. We then took a walk (see below pictures) from Broad Campden to Chipping Campden. It was a beautiful late afternoon, very warm, and we were so happy to be in the country. It was amazingly quiet, medieval and agricultural and I was the happiest I had been since arriving. Turns out I really am a country girl! We visited Hidcote Garden this morning so that my mom and sis could see it, it was incredible! I did not take any pictures of Hidcote, as I left my camera in the car, but I figured that there would be a few more chances.

Snowdrops and daylilies.
