Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe and Chedworth

On Friday, 21st April we headed to the lovely village of Winchcombe to visit Sudeley Castle. It was a wonderful place to visit with an amazing history. Henry V111 had visited and his last wife Katherine Parr died here. There were also some wonderful collections especially the embroideries.

These were just a few of the embroideries on display.

 There were also peacocks who enjoyed showing off!

We then had lunch in Winchcombe which is another lovely little town. Also had a chat to a delightful lady in the local church about the history of the town.

We then navigated some tiny one lane roads to Chedworth Roman Villa which was very interesting.

So pleased you enjoyed your visit to some of our favourite places in the Cotswolds - less than an hour's drive from us here in leafy Warwickshire. I have very happy memories of taking my Dad for tea at a lovely tea shop in Winchcombe to celebrate his 90th birthday, back in 1996. Dad had a very small appetite and said what he really wanted was a boiled egg and soldiers which was on the children's menu. When the waitress learned it was Dad's 90th birthday she told him he could order anything he liked, even off the Children's menu. He ate every scrap!
