Well October so far has been warmer than August.  We had a great week with our German visitors. A trip to Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water, great success with the children and not too expensive.  Touring the Cotswold villages The Slaughters, The Swells, Northleach a small market town with a beautiful Church.  So hopefully they will return to Cologne with very happy memories of Bibury Holiday Cottages and The Cotswolds and will tell their friends.  However the rate of exchange of pound against the euro does make it expensive, loosing around a third.
