6 Things to do this Summer in the Cotswolds...

30 Jun 2019

Hello everyone,

I know that it can often be difficult to find something to do in the summer without spending a fortune, so today I thought I would share with you some ideas of what to do without spending too much money. I live in quite a quiet little place in the Cotswolds, However, Over the years I have definitely found a few things to do that are enjoyable and do not need an awful lot of pennies. 

1. Go for a picnic at Pitville Park 

Now this is probably one of the best things to do on a budget, if you find a really lovely place and take along some food, you can spend the whole day sun bathing and eating, which is some of my favourite things to do. I would usually go to the local park but its always nice to find place new. I live in the cotswolds so there are so many cute little quaint places to stop by and have a picnic. Of course you do not need to go all out with the champagne and chocolate strawberries, I most often will grab a meal deal and head down to the park with a blanket, ear phones and my sunnies and spend the day just chilling and enjoying the sunshine.

2. Explore the Cotswold Villages...

As I said before, I live in the cotswolds so I often take a trip out to Bourton on the Water, Stow and Broadway. I love these sorts of little trips because you really don't need to worry about spending money as you are just wondering and exploring a new place. I feel like all you need for a day like this is to stop of for a bit of lunch, which will probably cost under £10 or even stop by for a coffee which would be less than £5. This just means your exploring a new place but probably only spending money on parking the car and a nice spot of lunch. Or even save your money and eat at home and treat yourself to ice cream.

3. Visit the Petal Confetti fields

If you are majorly into your instagram, or you just love flowers, the real flower petal confetti fields are a perfect place to visit. It costs around £5 to enter and you can spend the afternoon looking around the beautiful flower fields. This is such a fab place to go for some beautiful photos, or even if you fancy a picnic with your friends and just want beautiful surroundings. When I visited the fields last year, it was very very hot, so I would reccomened going earlier rather than later in the afternoon as it gets very hot walking around with no shade. Its a wonderful day out and the perfect spot to take some photos.

4. Find a cute cafe for brunch

Now I love going for a spot of lunch and one of my favourite things to do is find new places to eat. There are so many lovely cafes around and some of my favourites are, The Find, The Coffee Dispensary, Baker and Graze and The Curious Cafe . This means you can catch up with friends over some great food. Or if your not up for lunch, coffee and cake is always a good idea. However I would be careful as sometimes coffee and cake can sometimes be just as expensive as lunch, depending on where you go. 

5. Have an afternoon tea

I do love an afternoon tea and they are always something I love having for a special occasion, so they can often be quite expensive.   There are so many places to choose from that offer afternoon tea in the cotswolds and you are likely to find some where, everywhere you turn. Some of my favourite places have to be the Malmasison or Huffkins bakery. However, instead of spending £14 for one person, head on down to Lidl and grab some scones, clotted cream and jam. You could always have a little set up in the garden and bring the afternoon tea to your home. This is a great idea if you are having friends round and want to have something that little bit more special

6.  Go for Ice cream

I also love discovering new places for ice cream and just meeting up with friends and chatting over ice cream. This is another great affordable option where you can spend less than £5 which is great. I tend to go to Pitville park for the best ice cream as they do so many flavours and it really is not that pricey at all. Also if you ever visit the cotswold town of Broadway, I would highly recommend the ice cream from the little pink stand. 

I really hope you enjoyed this post and it helped you out if you are in need of somthing to do in the Cotswolds.

See you next time
