Cotswolds: Sheep & sunset

Moreton-in-marsh walk - The cat, you and us

First chapter of our Cotswolds trip!

We are super excited to finally being able to share our UK whereabouts at the amazing natural area of the Cotswolds, starting today with our first English sunset surrounded by wheat fields and cutie patootie sheep.

However, I need to quickly mention something about what you might have seen in the news, the issues happening here in Catalonia & large demonstrations held in Barcelona. It’s difficult to think about anything else, but since this blog is our bubble I will unashamedly use it as my safety blanket to keep calm and carry on, no matter how worried we are. I know if I have your company everything will be fine, so would you travel with us to the most beautiful English countryside?


Moreton-in-marsh, a walk to Batsford Arboretum


In case it’s the first time you’ve heard about the Cotswolds, it is a 25 miles English area considered of outstanding beauty and which includes stone-built historical villages, meadows and rolling hills. The best known town in this area may be Bath, but followed shortly for the little Bibury. We are talking about very iconic places! I learnt that the English passport has a drawing of the houses from Bibury in one of its inner pages (to my British blog pals: is that right?)

During our first road trip in the UK we were very lucky to visit Bath on the south of the Cotswolds (and also Lacock), so this time we decided to go to the northern part of the area instead. We set our home base at the town of Moreton-in-marsh, because besides good bus connection it also has a train station connected with Oxford in less than 40 minutes.

The first day we were eager to just soak into the Cotswolds environment and went for a walk to the nearby fields, a very charming path to the Arboretum. We enjoyed our first pink pastel sunset of the trip, waved hello to the fluffy sheep, and ok, let’s admit we may had some minor problems figuring out how each of the fences opened, ha!

The walk goes through several fields, each separated with a fence with a different locking system. In the picture, pretending I’m mastering the art of the fences, ha! just kidding they were not that complicated but wasn’t expecting so many different types.

After this training we felt ready for the rest of walks of the trip and in love with the area. We had dinner at our hotel & dreamt about all the beautiful stone-house villages that were awaiting for us. Keep tuned, you’re the best travel buddy!

See you very soon ♥

    Wonderful. I can’t wait to see more. We are lucky that Thomas’ parents live very close to the Cotswolds. I will have to go and check my passport now :)
