Explore some of England’s most treasured landscapes, where mellow stone-built towns and villages are tucked away amidst rolling limestone hills. The Cotswolds became prosperous with the medieval wool trade, when many fine churches and manor houses were built and left unspoilt to this day. It’s an area of outstanding natural beauty and our holiday base, Cheltenham, is one of our finest historic treasures and the most complete Regency town in Britain.

Itinerary

Excursions

FULL DAY: Today we head into the lush meadows and honey coloured stone villages of the Cotswolds where this wonderful scenic tour takes in some of the most perfect picture-postcard villages of middle England. First to Moreton-in-Marsh where there is an opportunity to explore the huge Tuesday market, a celebrated weekly event, which takes over the High Street. We continue this afternoon to Bourton-on-the-Water, a renowned Cotswold village with the little River Windrush flowing beneath tiny humpback bridges. 

FULL DAY: All aboard today for a ride on the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway as it steams serenely through the rolling Cotswold Hills to Broadway, a delightful place often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’. Here there is time to explore the ‘broad way’ with its ancient Cotswold stone cottages and myriad of antique shops before returning via Stow-on-the-Wold, where there is time to explore the ancient market square surrounded by dozens of independent antique shops.

FULL DAY: Heading south today, we reach Cirencester, often referred to as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’, before we make our way this afternoon to Chavenage House, a 400 year old Cotswold Manor where the Lowsley-Williams family take pride in welcoming you personally to their home.
