A Christmas break in the Cotswold’s

Driving down the long drive into the valley to the side of Fish Hill the automatic gates open and we step into the wonderful world of The Fish.  We’ve now begun a mini tradition of taking a short break in the Cotswolds pre-Christmas to have some quality time and a much needed rest.

Honister Via Ferrata, Galleny Force and the Stone Circle
