Painswick – The queen of the Cotswolds
During August bank holidays Dan (my fiance) and I took a road trip to the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding beauty, and until we arrived I didn’t realise just how beautiful it was. It is the perfect place for a Minimoon. The views of the Gloucestershire hills are breathtaking. Even Dan was taken back.
The Courthouse Manor – Minimoon cotswolds
Nestled in the Cotswolds hills is the historic town of Painswick. I felt as though I had stepped on a movie set with the quaint and narrow streets. The Courthouse Manor, hidden away next to St Mary’s Church is A stunning grade 1 listed building. The gravel courtyard, the picturesque gardens and luxury interior are perfect to stroll hand in hand with your loved one.
The Court House Manor offers bed and breakfast & different styled luxury bedrooms. We had the pleasure of staying in the Othello. The Othello has a private stairway taking you to the top of the courthouse. The views are stunning.
The bed looked very comfy so there was only one thing for it… We dived straight on the bed, like two big kids.
During our weekend we dined in the local cosy restaurant ‘the falcon Inn‘ highly recommended, visited St Mary’s Church and strolled through the narrow streets. If you stay longer be sure to visit Cheltenham Races, Bicester Village designer outlet, Cirencester quaint town & Gloucester Cathedral is stunning.
It was truly romantic.
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know a little more about the Cotswolds & enjoy planning your minimoon. I hope to be back very soon, who knows I may even get to photograph a wedding or two in the stunning area.
