    Cotswolds suggestions?

    I’m coming to blighty in a week or so and wifey fancies a few days in the Cotswolds on our way up

    Does anyone know any nice “typical” places to stay or things to see in the area?

    I’ve seen a few manor houses but they’re too pricey for me

    Looking more in the 100 quid a night range

    Cheers

    If you fancy being in Cheltenham, there's a new Premier Inn right in the centre of Cheltenham or the former Big Sleep that is just around the corner from Wetherspoons if on a budget - seems to be https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_...eltenham_.html now.

    Best Western have a few hotels in the area, some in towns, some rural in the sub £100 bracket. These are usually pretty reliable.

    More traditional is https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_...s_England.html right by the Triumph dealer. Easy walk into the posh bit around Montpelier for a choice of food.

    Never been in here but a great location overlooking the racecourse to Malverns from Clee Hill - I drive past it all the time for work and keep thinking I should stop for a pint one day
    https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_...s_England.html

    There are loads more village inns with rooms under £100 and one of these would be my choice - as I live in Cheltenham I have little idea about what the accommodation is like.

    What are you interested in? Gawping at scenery? Gloster Aviation history? Georgian architecture? Roman archeology? Ale? Cider? Wine? Michelin starred French gastronomy?

    Having a night here, going to visit the “Secret Nuclear Bunker” at Kelvedon Hatch

    Then across to the Cotswolds for a couple of nights in The Porch House in Stow on the Wold, apparently Britains oldest inn

    Sounds like you’re already sorted, but we stayed here recently, and very good it was too

    A really good mate of mine is in Cheltenham and is an Airbnb host, his properties are very nice, Jason is a nice guy, his wife Mel is French and head of French at some posh girls school, she’s a riot though

    Watch out for RIAT though, that pushes a lot of prices through the roof.

    Broadway is a pleasant place to visit.

    I prefer the Japanese and Korean tourists that visit Bibury. DILF factor is higher, but not as good as Sennybridge.
