Mummytolittlee's Guide to Stroud, Gloucestershire
toddlers in Stroud, Gloucestershire
Stroud is a beautiful market town in the county of Gloucestershire, famous for its dramatic Cotswolds landscape, vibrant art scene and array of independent shops.

The national multi award-winning Stroud Farmer’s Market is the biggest weekly market outside of London and is well known as one of the busiest and most popular farmers markets in the UK. As well as gorgeous local produce, Stroud offers range of festivals each year including the International Gypsy Guitar Festival and the Five Valleys Festivals. The town has a warm, community feel, a thriving café culture and alternative cultural values. It’s a hub of creativity, which is reflected in the wide range of high profile writers and artists living there. Central to Stroud’s history is its tranquil canal network, with a 12-mile tow-path between Eastington and Sapperton.

I blog at to record the good, the bad and the exhausting of life as a working mum of two rather energetic children! My blog is also where I indulge my passion for poetry, photography and feminism.
