On Saturday we went for a drive around the Cotswolds area, with stops at a few places to try and find some of the hares on the trail that we started in Cirencester https://spinner182.wordpress.com/2017/04/05/cotswold-hare-trail-2017-cirencester/
They don’t make it easy to find them ;>.>
Using the website for the trail we wrote down the locations of 9 hares which we hoped to find…….we found 6 ^_^;
There are some nice designs on these hares though, and here is how to find them if you are also on the hunt :P
The first one we found was at Sudley Castle in Winchcombe. The hare is in the corner of the outside seating area for the cafe at the reception building.
There is supposed to be another hare in Winchcombe town centre as well, but we couldn’t find anywhere to park the car to look for it.
Next we went to Broadway where there are 2 which are nice and easy to find :)
There is one outside the Lygon Arms, and there is one inside a shop called Cotswold Trading.
We then drove towards Moreton-in-Marsh and on the way there we stopped at Batsford Arboretum. To find the hare there walk through the garden centre to the cafe near the back, and near there are some doors to an outside area where you’ll find the hare.
At Moreton-in-Marsh there is a shopping arcade called Old Market Way where we found the next hare close to the entrance.
There was another hare listed as “opposite Cotswold Grey” but we couldn’t find it. We asked inside the Cotswold Grey shop and the lady there had no idea what we were talking about ^_^;
The last one we found was in Stow-on-the-Wold at the Sheep Hotel. The hare is in the entrance lobby / reception for the hotel rooms, which is next to the main entrance into the pub.
There is another hare inside the library as well, but unfortunately we got there after they had closed, and the hare can’t be seen from the outside……a nice lady at the market in the building showed us a photo of the hare from when it was being unloaded that morning and it looks like a nice one. So we may make another stop back there to see it now we know where it is :)
A bit strange that it had just been delivered that day when the trail was supposed to have started weeks ago…..no wonder there are so many which we can’t find even when we have their supposed location ^_^;;
It was good that we managed to see another 6 of them, and it was fun looking for them :)
On another weekend we’ll drive around and hunt for some more at other Cotswold towns ;)
