During half term, Edd and I headed to the Costwolds for a couple of days. I love a relaxing break in October half term- the first few weeks of school are always so tiring.
We stayed at the Stonehouse Court Hotel in Stonehouse near Stroud. Stonehouse is a village (small town?) surrounded by beautiful countryside. Look at the view from our window!
On the first evening we ate in the hotel. It was of a really high standard, beautifully presented. This was Edd's strawberries and cream dessert.
I found Bath Salts in the bathroom. BATH SALTS. Obviously I used them!
The following day we walked to Stroud and found The Greyhound Inn for lunch. They had a really varied menu, lots of pitta wraps and so on. Edd had a cheese and bacon burger and I had a mini platter which was basically a lot of cheese. YUM.

The walk to Stroud along the canal was really beautiful . It took ages so that definitely burnt some calories! I've just started using a Fitbit, wish I'd had it then so I could see all the steps I'd done!
Then it was back to the hotel for the cream tea which was included in the price. More food!
In the evening we went for a curry in Stonehouse. The waiter was really happy that we were from Birmingham! "There's a lot of Indian restaurants in Birmingham," he said. Tandoori prawns in my belly!
We had a lovely relaxing time in Stonehouse. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous and I could have stared at the view all day.
