stuff to do in the cotswolds?

I'm going on holiday to the Cotswolds, does anyone live there? or has anyone been on holiday there and can recommend places to go, or stuff to do or things to see?
 
any advice appreciated, thanks

I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    Lots of nice villages, walks & scenery for a start. 

    Bourton-on-the-Water is a nice place for a lazy stroll and pub lunch

    Chipping Camden is very nice.

    Places like Bourton on the Water are OK, however, it will be packed full of city-type Londoners from experience, hence expensive and busy!

    Lots of horse riding in the Cotswolds if that's your thing? Sure there is plenty of shooting too if you like that.

    Got really popular has it?  Been about 12 years since I was there - was still fairly quiet then.

    I live quite close to it, when ever I went there were a lot of people going hang gliding & para gliding looked great fun, not something I would do but always an option.

    Massively popular! Was when I was there a few years ago though.

    Cotswolds has become one of 'the' places to go for city-type Londoners and wannabe trendsters wanting a break from their 5g's of coke a day lifestyle.

    Think Kate Moss is to blame!

    Go to the Mousetrap pub in Bourton-on-the-Water if it's still there.

    Had a great kick off there about 18 years ago. Lol.

    Oh, and check if Washbourne's Hotel in Lower Slaughter is still there. Got sacked from there for driving a dumper truck into a greenhouse. :(

    stow is one of the nicest villages in my oppinion, but cant go wrong with most of them, all very picturesque with good resteraunts/pubs. but they do contain many tourists. they get on my nerves.

    Lower slaughter manor is the place

    I've lived in the area all my life, so I guess I'm not gonna get very excited about it however, if you like nice countryside and over priced drink in country pubs you'll enjoy yourself ;-)

    There are other things to do that would be a good day out like beer festivals, sat watching car racing  with toffs

    but that all depends when you go.

    London prices, out of london imo. In cheltenham, £4 for a pint if that's not expensive then crack on

    I may be being stupid, but I always thought Cheltenham was Gloucestershire and not really part of the Cotswolds?
     
    It is very very expensive though in the Cotswolds, and snobby lol.
