Three-Day Visit


We will be flying into Birmingham in September, and plan on spending our three days/nights in the Cotswolds. We are unsure of which town to use as our base - Stratford-upon-Avon or Broadway.

After spending each day exploring the area by car, it would be nice to return to a town that has plenty of options at night by foot - in terms of restaurants and traditional pubs with good local food and beer.

Which one of these towns would be more suitable, or are we well off the mark? Would we be better off staying in e.g. Worcester, and making day trips to the likes of Stratford-upon-Avon and Broadway? Maybe you have a much better idea!

Stratford is one of the bigger towns nearby with a selection of pubs and restaurants. A drive of only 30 or 40 minutes from there will take you to most of the Cotswold towns and villages.

Cheltenham has far more to offer than Stratford imo, Stratdford is a bit of a one-trick pony.

And if Frome is in the Cotswolds, so is Cheltenham !
