Where is your favourite pub or restaurant?
The Butchers Arms – Oakridge Lynch – Fabulous location, pub with wood burning stoves, beams etc, run by a husband and wife team, excellent food, good value and the roasts only served on Sunday are to die for.
What do you love about the area?
The Cotswolds especially the Stroud Valleys are an area of outstanding natural beauty and offer panoramic views throughout. Great walks, pubs, very much a destination if you are a foodie.
Where is the best place to relax in the area?
Minchinhampton Common where you can walk, fly a kite, have a picnic and just chill.
What do you think is the best view in the area?
Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons – Panoramic.
How would you spend a ‘perfect day’ in the area?
English breakfast at Lavender Bakehouse, Chalford, followed by a brisk walk on one of the many commons, then some shopping in fab Cheltenham, followed by lunch in Montpelier – then a twilight spa evening at Calcot Spa relaxing in their hot tub with the renowned log fire close by, sipping champagne, having a treatment, facial followed by supper in the Gumstool part of Calcot Manor, then back home to my very special home, an apartment within an old woollen mill surrounded by lakes and waterfalls to awake to the sound of birds at 5am the following morning.
