Just checking !?

Hi!

The Cotswolds part of our itinerary in July is 3 days for: Snowshil Manor, Hidcote Gardens and Bourton on Water. A day before that we plan Blenheim Palace. After, we go to Bath.

The question is: Have I made a right choice , or I shall trade some for another places to see?

We are into views, gardens, stately homes, woodland walks and child friendly activities .

Thank you all so so much.

Yuri.

Try Waddeson Manor. Very child friendly, good walks, views, etc.

Waddesdon manor has a very good playground for kids, but is in Bucks....Cliveden house has good gardens, but not much for kids....(Berks)

Blenheim palace, the kids will enjoy the little train and the maze.

Check Rousham house and gardens, a bit north of Oxford

Waddesdon manor seems wonderful , but it is not in Cotswolds! I think I should treasure it for some next trip up North from London . It will fit with Black Country Museum in Dudley . Am I right?

Waddesdon Manor could be on the way from Blenheim Palace to Cotswolds

I don't think so Penny...it is between Aylesbury and Bicester.....

I think Yuri, if you are driving from London then Waddesdon could be your first stop and then over Bicester and Oxford etc,.

After we land in LHR we sleep in Slough, next day is Legoland. That night we stay in Bicester. Next day- Blenheim Palace and then drive to Evesham for the night. I don't think I could fit Waddesdon into that part of the trip.

Thank you! I was thinking about doing birds in Bourton on Water! So we'll give a Batsford a miss this time.

About Cotswold Farm Park: Is it something like Hop Farm in Kent?

As a knowledge for trips to come: Does the route " LHR- Waddesdon Manor- Black Country Museum( Dudley )- Ludlow- Shrewsbury----Wales", make sense?
