Well..all of a sudden its Spring '22

A bright weekend has promised a good drive somewhere..!!

Nigel and I had visited the Motorcycle Museum (NEC:Solihull) in the winter..
it was a good venue - busy despite being in the midst of a 'Winter Storm' !

I am happy to organise a trip in April..
Cotswolds sounds promising

Somewhere between Burford and Tewkesbury maybe..?

Recommendations of a venue are most welcome :)

The layby for 'Royal Breakfast' is easy to find.. and Close to the NT estate..

But I think the Layby is actually pretty small.. IF we had a reasonable attendance we would gridlock it all :-(

But 5 minutes further west.. at the CharltonKings reservoir.. there is a new cafe- garden centre plot

I continued along the A40 to Huntly.. between Gloucester and DeanForest

There is a Garden Centre there we have used since 2017.. a really nice Cafe
Sundays the Breakfast is served 10/11:30 lunches beyond that

Probably 75 minutes of leisurely driving from Faringdon on a Sunday morning
About the same for me

@blu73 is probably 30 mins

Although I see there is a 'biker cafe' in 5ways.. 'Gorilla Gaff' if I read it correctly

Thats not that far from the Clearwell Caves Cafe we have used a few times over the years..

tbf clearwell caves is never a bad option, massive free carpark and good cakes (y)

but all these places are nice and local to me, not that i've been to any of them bar clearwell lol
