We are a 60 year old couple looking to spend 2 or 3 nights in the Cotswolds in spring 2019 before visiting Ireland. Arrive and hire a car from London early morning and head to the area. Maybe visit Oxford on the way or could leave this and Windsor and Stratford on Avon for seeing on our return from Ireland. Thinking of staying in Birdlip as I've found some good accommodation (not yet booked). Interested in some short walks and seeing places of interest (though not too many castles) and anything out of the ordinary. Also enjoy evening tours if there are any in the area. Thanks for anticipated help.
