FULL DAY PRIVATE AND PERSONAL COTSWOLDS TOURS (available throughout the year)
A SUGGESTED ITINERARY
After collecting you from your local hotel, or, if you are coming from London, from Charlbury railway station, I will drive you through the lovely Cotswold countryside to Broadway Tower where you will experience stunning views of the Cotswolds from the top. After a short stop at the exquisitely pretty Snowshill we will then visit the charming town of Chipping Campden to admire the beautiful thatched cottages and perhaps stop for coffee. We will then head for Stow on the Wold before visiting the famous Upper and Lower Slaughter. After this we head for Bourton on the Water, the 'Venice of the Cotswolds', where we will stop for a walk along the banks of the river Windrush which meanders through this delightful Cotswolds town, before heading for lunch at the Swan Inn in the charming village of Swinbrook. After a delicious lunch we will visit the historic town of my birth, Burford, where I will give you a guided tour of the town including the fascinating 'wool' church, and see the beautiful Cotswold house which my father built, and where I grew up. Later in the afternoon we will go off the beaten track to visit charming, hidden away villages such as Eastleach Martin, Coln St Aldwyn and Bibury. At the end of the tour I will return you to your hotel or train station.
Travelling from London:
If you are coming from London for this tour you should take the train from London Paddington to Charlbury in the Cotswolds, where I will meet you. At the end of the tour I will return you to Charlbury to catch the return train for London Paddington.
