Chedworth Roman Villa

For our last breakfast, I opted for the Danish Pastry selection, naughty but nice. We cleared the room and checked out then Mr C retrieved the car and loaded it with our bags before we set off to the nearby Chedworth Roman Villa. I have a childhood memory of visiting the villa on a school trip. I loved seeing the mosaics which are covered by buildings to protect them. There is a little museum that contains some interesting artefacts including a rare fragment of fish-shaped glass originating from what is now the Ukraine and estimated to be around 1800 years old.

Upper Slaughter

Lower Slaughter

Next we visited Upper and Lower Slaughter where we enjoyed a lovely walk. Sadly all the eating places were fully booked so we set off in the direction of Broadway. On the way we stopped off at The Cotswold Food Store and Café which is in the middle of nowhere with fine views over Gloucestershire. The weather was glorious so we opted to sit outside. This turned out to be a bit of a mistake as it was extremely windy and blowing things around the table. Instead of stopping off at Broadway, we elected to go straight home. We picked up food for an evening meal and a box of Godiva chocolates which we later enjoyed on the patio with a bottle of my birthday bubbly.

      I loved seeing the Roman Villa and also being able to see the Slaughters after not being able to park on our previous attempted visit.

  2. Loved seeing the Roman Villa – went to one on the Isle of Wight but haven’t been to Chedworth. Were the Cotswolds quieter than normal?
