Must make a note to take a detour to Bibury next time we head to the borders.

My mother's side of the family is from South WALES, which is not IN England, so any excuse to head back. This time it's for a Food and Cider festival.

I'm sure you'll enjoy Bibury. Check out the Swan Hotel and Bibury Court Hotel as well as the natural beauty of the Cotswolds.
