With beautiful rolling hills and charming stone cottages, the Cotswolds are the utopian Britain we all imagine, so you won’t be surprised to find out that this officially an area of outstanding natural beauty. We’ll start off in the village of Castle Combe, where the even the newest house dates from around 1600! Next stop is Bourton on the Water, Known as ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, for the tranquil river running through the centre and the multitude of petite arched bridges. You could choose to visit a model village, replicating the town in the 1930s and taking you back to a simpler time, or you could visit the some of the local shops, such as the olde curiosity shop. If you’re feeling hungry, savour a cream tea or relax in one of the historical pubs and have a leisurely lunch. Before heading back, we’ll visit the small but delightful market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the best known and historically most important of the Cotswold towns.
