A Day in the Cotswolds: Broadway Tower

I don't often get to see my Dad's side of the family, as they live around three and a half hours away in Bristol, but last Saturday we decided to meet halfway in the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds. This is where you see the fairytale countryside of England that many tourists envisage, and trust me this place was overloaded with tourists. After driving around for a while, as in typical Buckley-family style we hadn't made any plans beforehand, we came across this stunning architecture, known as the Broadway Tower. Completed in 1798, as a lover of History and old beautiful buildings, this was my kind of place.





It was such a lovely place to sit on the hills surrounded by beautiful countryside, to light the candles of my Grandad's birthday cake, and spend rare time with my family with the sun setting around us. If only everywhere in England looked this magical, I wish I didn't open my bedroom curtains every morning to a major motorway, and instead rolling hills. I can dream, we can all dream.

      I wish I could walk somewhere like that from my house. Closest I'd get is the fields by the motorway. xx
