Dream Weekend: The Cotswolds

As any morning in England should, mine would start with tea and toast. I'd go for a stroll around the gardens at Barnsley House before rowing a little boat through the Cotswolds villages with a packed picnic---something that you can actually arrange at Barnsley. After the picnic, I'd head back to the house to spend some time reading outdoors before playing a game of tennis. For dinner, I'd go to The Village Pub for a twice-baked cheddar cheese souffle and fresh vegetables followed by sticky toffee for dessert. 

Sunday would start, again, with tea and a walk in the morning before going to afternoon tea at The Potager where I'd throw all caution to the wind and have a good champagne tea which consists of finger sandwiches, fruit scones with clotted cream and housemade jam, freshly baked cakes and, of course, tea and champagne. After walking off that meal, I'd go to the Barnsley House spa to sit in the steam room and hydrotherapy pool before and after a hot stone massage and a facial. Then, I'd head back to The Potager for a light dinner and raspberry souffle. After dinner, the night would end with a film at Barnsley House's cinema.
