Much to Look Forward to here in the Cotswolds:-

There is so much to look forward to doing here in the Cotswolds during 2018 that I just had to share a few things with you all.  Snowdrop season is upon us so spring is definitely on its way. Lambing live will be happening here on the farm from the 1st of April for three weeks, then the bluebells will be out and spring will definitely have sprung.  We will be having baby calves as well so new life will be appearing everywhere but if you are planning to come and stay this year then be sure to know that there is something to do whatever time of the year you visit.  Here is just a snapshot of what you can do here in the Cotswolds this year but if you are staying at King Johns Cottages then there will be heaps of information on what to do and when and even what to do when it is raining. For example Bourton-on-the-Water alone has many attractions for all the family at all times of the year and in all weathers.

A Brief Monthly Diary:-

February – How about the Puddle Jumping Championships at Slimbridge.  Open to adults and children so get your wellies ready and be transported back to your childhood.

March – Festivals – Music, Literary and of course Cheltenham National Hunt Races there’s something for all the family.  If you love gardens then why not book a visit to the Royal Gardens at Highgrove  for the Talking Gardens from the 20th to 24th of March although you can book a garden tour on other select dates during the year
