2. Pub with good food less than a mile away.
3. Free wifi and large screen tv.
4. Really well equipped kitchen – great for foodies
5. Miles of peaceful lakeside walks.
6. Master bedroom with ensuite and amazing lake views.
7. Tennis court and table tennis table.
8. Log burning stove to sit around in the evening.
9. Blackout blinds on the windows to help little ones sleep that bit longer.
10. Plenty of wine glasses!

and of course a family holiday couldn’t be parent friendly if it wasn’t child friendly too. So here’s what the kids can look forward to:

1. Heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
2. Great paths for scooting and cycling round.
3. Playground with swings, slides climbing frame, a trampoline and football goals.
4. Chickens to visit.

Watching Beavers in the Cotswolds

In 2005 six European beavers were released to Flagham Fen on the Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds. Since their arrival they have thrived, building beaver lodges, felling trees, digging a network of mini canals for easy transportation of logs and generally being as busy as, well, beavers!

It is a real treat to see the beavers – they are nocturnal so just before dawn or just after dusk are the most likely times of day to see them. The lake where they live is a 10 minute walk from Daisy Chain. As they glide through the water you spot the characteristic ‘v’ wave coming from the front of their head. Sometimes they turn and face you, staring into your eyes before arching their backs and diving silently under the water, where they can remain for up to 15 minutes at a time. It is a magical sight.

Ready to explore Cirencester?

Ready to explore Cirencester?

A walk around Cirencester, following the recently launched ‘Whereat Trail’ will introduce you to many historically significant parts of the town. The trail was set up in commemoration of Norman Whereat, the first person to be awarded the ‘Freeman of Cirencester. He was a long time town councillor and twice mayor. The trail begins at Corinium Museum (the multi award winning museum which has a large collection of locally found Roman artefacts) and continues past the gates of the Bathurst Estate, the west gate of Roman Corinium and the Roman amphitheatre.

Cirencester Amphitheatre

Giant Hares invade Cirencester

Cirencester hare

Chester had rhinos, Bristol had Grommit the dog and now Cirencester has Hares! The hare has a special place in the history of Cirencester. In 1971, a mosaic bearing a hare was found close to the River Churn and is now the symbol of the Corinium Museum where the mosaic is now housed.

This summer, 50 decorated 5 foot hares have been placed around Cirencester and the surrounding area. They are accompanied by 24 small decorated hares which are placed in shops and cafés.

A number of celebrities have decorated hares – they include Adam Henson, Chris Beardshaw, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Amy Williams.

All the family can have fun seeing how many hares they can find….for an insider’s map check out http://bit.ly/1ujQHf5
