This is the beautiful village of Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds, named after the old English word for muddy place (slothre). Well it is muddy, and there is a pretty stream running through it. Just behind me is a small 2 bedroomed cottage for sale - only £525,000. Yep, I had to look it up. Do you do that when you go somewhere new? I always have a nose around the estate agents or look them up online.
