    Default Cotswolds Recommendations

    Hiya,

    Any recommendations for a nice town to stay in in the Cotswolds for a short weekend? Somewhere that takes longer than 10 minutes to walk around but is still quite quite old-fashioned or historical would be ideal. The missus likes antique shops and I like proper pubs. Not Bath.

    TIA.

    Cirencester is nice.

    I quite like Witney in Oxfordshire.

    TBH, apart from Bath, most of the towns are quite small and don't take long to walk around.
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    Witney is nice but the centre a bit busy and developed for shopping. Nice playgrounds if you have small children.

    Broadway doesn't really meet your criteria (too small) and it's not very central, but I always enjoy staying at this place FWIW:

    As Prawny says, there aren't too many towns that take longer than 10 mins to walk around.

    Thanks for the replies . Tetbury looks nice. Finding somewhere to stay with decent parking in Cirencester was difficult but some good suggestions.
