new year's eve in the cotswolds

After spending two consecutive New Year's Eves in dreary old London (so often disappointing), my friends and I decided to celebrate the end of 2012 by escaping the city and heading for the tranquility of the Cotswolds. We spent five days on the edge of a beautiful lake, not too far from the market town of Cirencester. Most of our time was spent eating, drinking and resting horizontally, watching Game of Thrones, and then eating and drinking a little bit more, but we also managed an afternoon trip to Stroud, a Gloucestershire town where Isabella Blow and Jasper Conran set up the local farmer's market. I've visited the Cotswolds three or four times, and every trip has been wonderful - the ancient market towns are so perfectly formed and the countryside is spectacular. (The local food is excellent too!)
