Bourton on the Water well worth a visit, not just a pretty Cotswold village doing cream teas, you have Birdland, the model village and the Bourton Motor Museum, the home of Brum.
Seem to remember that when I was a kid they had a model railway shop/museum there also??
And not forgetting Bibury, and a spot of fishing at South Cerney.
Yes the large model railway is still there, with the shop selling thousands of models, went around it last year and a lovely set up especially when it goes to "night time" and main lights are dimmed and the models all light up - another attraction well worth a visit.
Bibury is worth visiting and you have the famous Arlington Row of cottages which were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of cottages for weavers in the seventeenth century.
Also the fish farm, where trout are bred and sold to fisheries around the country. You can buy fish food there to feed them ... so you pay the fish farm for the food then you feed their fish with it - a clever business set up (but the kids love it).
Still some good tench fishing at South Cerney.
You are also on the door step for the Cotswold Water Park.
OK folks you get the idea, there is a lot to do in the area
Think its time I filled in my CV and sent it of to the local tourist board
