Suggested Cotswold Tour Routes

Tour 1: The Windrush and Coln Valleys

This tour takes in two of the loveliest of the Cotswold river valleys, both of which contain outstanding villages both large and small, including Bourton on the Water, the Slaughters, Burford and Bibury.

The Coln valley in particular is not well known to visitors as the road following the valley bottom is very narrow, but the villages we go through are wonderful.

Tour 2: Broadway, Chipping Campden & the North

Most people of heard of Chipping Campden, Broadway and Stow on the Wold, but what about Ebrington (pronounced "Yubberton" by the locals!), Ilmington or Snowshill?

Discover such hidden gems on this tour. Beautiful villages and fabulous views from the edge of Cotswolds - what more could you want?

Tour 3: Painswick & the Central Cotswolds

My favourite part of the Cotswolds and the least “touristy”, this unusual tour takes in the old towns of Painswick and Minchinhampton.

Some of the best views from the edge of the hills, with hidden villages tucked away into steep sided valleys.

Stunningly beautiful!.

Tour 4: Highlights

If you have not been to the Cotswolds before and only have a day to spare, this could be the tour for you.

It combines elements of Tours 1 and 2, covering the better known places such as Broadway and Bourton on the Water. A taster to make you want to come back for more.

Tour 5: Castle Combe & the South Cotswolds

Castle Combe is considered one of the most beautiful villages in England – judge for yourself!

We also go to Lacock with an optional chance to visit Lacock Abbey, where the cloisters were used as a location for Harry Potter films.

Malmesbury and the antique hunter’s paradise of Tetbury are also included.
