Northleach is very close to Bourton on the Water, which is very picturesque, on the slow, wide River Windrush.
In the village, behind The New Inn, is an outside model of Bourton, which I used to enjoy as a kid. I was always intrigued that within the model, is a model of the model etc., if you understand what I mean.
Nowadays there is also a small interesting motor museum, with loads of paraphernalia, and a small car “Brum” which appeared in a children’s television series.
Bourton can get very busy with tourists – nearby villages of Lower Slaughter & Upper Slaughter are equally pleasant, but without the commercialism.
There are good photos if you “Google” the above – don’t forget our “Tourist Information Centres”
I am basing this on my assumption that your children are of young school age.
Sorry you are not venturing up north – maybe next time.
