Worth getting out of bed for
Little Fleece Bookshop on Bisley Street, Painswick GL6 6QQ (+44 (0)1452 812 264). Collectors of quality secondhand and antiquarian books will thrill at the copies stacked from floor to ceiling, while browsers will find this 16th-century National Trust building worth earmarking alone for a visit. The Antiques Emporium Griffin Mill on London Road, Thrupp near Stroud, Gloucestershire (+44 (0)7970 601 624) Anyone in the market for shabby-chic treasures for the home should scour the furniture-packed rooms of French and English antiques here – from chintzy lampshades to grand dressers, this is an Aladdin's Cave of objêt d'art and top tat.
The Woolpack in Slad is a timeless little country pub overlooking a valley one side, and a church the other (+44 (0)1452 813429; www.thewoolpackinn-slad.com). Especially popular for Sunday lunch and beloved by Alex James and the hip Cotswoldian brigade, it can fill up quickly – definitely call in advance.
Olivas Delicatessen on Friday Street, Painswick GL6 6QJ (+44 (0)1452 814 774). Far from your typical Cotswolds teashop, Brian and Ximena Nunez have not only brought a taste of their native Colombia courtesy of the coffee that is served at this tiny hidden-away cafe and deli, but there are heartier homecooked delights on offer for lunch and dinner as well as traditional cream teatime treats.
