A day in the Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are rural England at its best, and a day spent exploring the ancient, honey-coloured limestone villages of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, set amongst rolling sheep-dotted hills, stone-walled fields and country inns is simply magical.
After being picked up at your hotel, you’ll be driven by one of our top hand-picked Blue Badge Guides into deepest Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire to find out what makes the Cotswolds so special.
Depending on your interests, you’ll be able to customise where you would like to go, but highlights include the famous thatched cottages of Chipping Campden, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Snowshill. In between these gorgeous thirteenth-century villages are ancient rural landscapes, rolling hills, sheep grazing in stone-walled fields and babbling streams.
We’d heartily recommend having lunch in an ancient pub, and there are also fabulous antique shops and gardens to visit if you are interested. A trip into the Cotswolds is simply memorable, and a wonderful window to the past.
