So in our trip to Cotswolds we made sure Stow on the Wold was on our list of places to visit. Compared to some of the other villages we visited on our break, Stow on the Wold had quite a large town square and parking was quite easy with a designated area for tourist parking.
If I had to choose to live anywhere in the Cotswolds, it would possibly be here. The houses were stunning, was lovely and rural but just enough to do in the village centre. There was a huge village square with an old house and hotel at one end with stores, restaurants and pubs at the other.
Stow on the Wold is also home to Huffkins bakery, we got a few cakes from here and they were incredible. It also has a Michelin star seafood restaurant that we would have absolutely loved to visit, but unfortunately it wasn’t dog friendly!
Instead, we decided on The Talbot. The Talbot was a lovely restaurant/pub that welcomed the dogs, although there was only one other couple in there with a dog. They brought over a bowl of water for the dogs too who were quite happy, even happier when they got the bacon from my bacon and cheese burger. The food was extremely reasonably priced at around the £10 mark for each meal and the food was really nice. Seemed quite busy with locals which is always a good indicator in my mind!
After that we just decided to go for a walk around the village and pop into some of the little shops around and about before heading back to Pinetum Lodge.
