Thank you Lemsip. Pam grew up near me. Her cousin lives round the corner from me.

Watching it now.

Bourton on the water looks lovely. Off to check it out on Booking.com 😀

A lovely gentle program. Pam Ayres was great with her cheeky smile and humour. One to watch for the weeks ahead.

I do love Pam Ayres, but was a mite disappointed with the emphasis on palaces and a retired rock star. Was hoping for more ‘ordinary’ stuff, quirky old places, little known beauty spots, etc. Anything ‘celeb’/or ‘rich and famous’ frankly leaves me cold.
I did love the very ancient oak tree, though.

I enjoyed it as it is my local area, but the format was no different from all the other 'celebs around the UK' programmes. I was hoping for the odd poem, but no such luck.

A glimpse of Bourton on the Water and then a retired pop star’s farm and his cheese , very disappointed.

Bourton well worth a visit

Shysal, I have just watched it on catchup and Pam did do a poem at the end about the brewery she visited and the shire horses who delivered the beer locally. It is my guess she may do a poem about one of the places she visits at the end of each episode maybe.

Thanks bumblebee, perhaps I nodded off or the end didn't record!

Yes, I was disappointed with this, it fell flat for me..

We went to Bourton on the Water a couple of years ago when we were staying in Stratford on Avon. I had never been there before and thought it lovely. We had a really nice salad in a pub there too - so much effort had gone into it.

We saw little of Bourton on the Water

I was a bit disappointed, too. I love the Cotswolds and I love Pam Ayres, but charming as she is, I don’t think she’s a natural presenter or interviewer. Above all, we didn’t see enough of the Cotswolds.

I was just about to say that .... however likeable someone may be, they may not be a natural presenter or interviewer. And in my opinion we saw too much of the canal and the actress from Bridgerton and not enough of the Cotswolds.
