Bourton on the Water
Easily one of the prettiest villages in the UK, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
If your visiting the Cotswolds then you definitely need to go to Bourton on the Water, commonly know as the Venice of the Cotswolds, because of the river running through the middle. There’s plenty to see and do here and dogs are obviously very welcome.
We decided on a walk from the Collins Short Walks in The Cotswolds book, in hope that we could tire Millie out before we headed into the village. However, this was not the case, Millie was still full of energy when we got into town, so we got a bag of chips and sat by the river and watched her jump in and out of the water after her ball. She even had an audience watching her agility skills, with some people even filming and photographing her.
On our way through the village I spotted a sign that said dairy free scone!! Oh my gosh, I’ve waited for this day for so long. I’ve been vegan for a year and a half and I’ve never found a vegan scone before, not that I’ve been actively looking for one, but it was a good feeling to see this sign. So on our way back through to the car, we decided to stop for some cake and coffee.
This place is called Green & Pleasant Tea Rooms. We were going to sit outside because we had Millie and she was wet, but the lovely people in there saw our little wet, shivering puppy and welcomed us inside. They fussed over Millie and brought her a blanket, some water and ham from the kitchen, we were all spoilt that day, we’ll definitely go back!
