Picturesque scenery in a tranquil setting, with rolling hills, babbling brooks, sleepy hamlets, pretty ‘chocolate box’ villages and engaging market towns, stately homes and gardens.
Expect to see thatched roof cottages and centuries-old stone wall buildings among the quintessentially English backdrop.
A predominantly rural landscape gives way to stunning honey-coloured architecture.
Hear stories from medieval times, when the Cotswold Lion breed of sheep sold to European merchant traders built the impressive ‘wool churches’, or when some of the ‘Levellers’, a group of radical thinkers who challenged Parliament in the English Civil War were executed in the quaint old town of Burford.
Other idyllic place names you can expect to visit are Bibury, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water (sometimes described as ‘Venice in the heart of England).
Maybe walk the hill to Broadway Tower, to enjoy a 360-degree landscape with the country of Wales in sight.
There are many options for snack breaks or lunch, from cosy tearooms to traditional countryside pubs, and your experienced and affable private driver guide host will know all the best options.
This special day will remain in your memory forever, but don’t forget that camera!
