Barnoldswick - Looe. lunch suggestions

After spending a week on the Leeds / Liverpool canal, we shall drive to our cottage in Looe. Most will be by motorway, however what suggestions do members have for a lunch detour ? Happy to spend 2 hours off highway, and would ideally like to see some of the cottswolds. Not necessarily Stow or Bourton , but any typical village for a half hour lunch stop. Any suggestions within that 2 hour time frame ? Want to complete entire journey in 8-9 hours .

Thanks

Hi - might be better to post on the Cotswolds forum - it's potentially a good detour, although bear in mind you'll have another 3-4 hours after the Cotswolds to get to Looe.

Whenabouts are you coming? If it's a weekend in the height of summer, you may want to plan to arrive in Cornwall late...

The Cotswolds is quite a significant detour from this route, and you'll have to spend most of your 'break' driving, and on possibly busy roads at that. Given the length of your journey, perhaps you should consider a shorter detour with a longer break? We once stopped at Tewkesbury which is a very attractive small town by the Severn, and its environs, only a couple of miles from the M5
