Weekly (Monday pm) from Stratford Upon Avon from 4 April 2018
And when you’re not taking in all this wonderful heritage and culture you’ll be walking through the stunning countryside, soaking in England at its “Chocolate Box” best.
We will meet guests in Stratford at approximately 1.30 pm where we will brief you on the tour and get you ready to walk through the stunning Cotswolds. We can tour Stratford (if you have not already done so) or head straight out into the North Cotswolds, through Chipping Campden, and the amazing American inspired Hidcote Gardens. The hotel for the night is at the Manor in Moreton in Marsh after a walk of between 4-8 miles.
We walk out into the stunning Cotswolds, visiting the beautiful Broadway Tower and Snowshill as well as stunning Cotswold villages including the Slaughters and Bourton on the Water. The day ends at the beautiful market town of Moreton in Marsh. The total mileage for the day is 4-9 miles depending on preference.
The World Heritage site is arguably England’s greatest Palace. The birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim has an illustrious history, stunning architecture and beautiful gardens, landscaped by Capability Brown. Our route travels through the stunning Cotswolds right into the Palace with routes from 4-8 miles. We will finish the tour either at Blenheim where we will help you to organise your ongoing travel arrangements.
Guests stay in the best 4* hotels in the Cotswolds region, with unbeatable settings, wonderful accommodation and stunning food – just see Trip Advisor for The Manor House Hotel. Further options are available for those who want to stay in a country cottage location or in a selection of hand-picked bed and breakfasts or pubs.
Our walks differ from almost every other type of walking tour – we call it “walk in walking”. Each day you will be transported close to an iconic point of interest e.g. Oxford and you will be able to literally walk directly into the city. The transfers are free, in the morning and afternoon and allow our guests to immerse themselves in England’s iconic places. Transfers are on average 30 minutes, with no one journey over 45 minutes.
Walk as much or as little as you like as there are options to suit all ages and abilities. Every day guest will be able to shorten the walk if required ensuring guests only need to walk the miles that suit them.
And if you need picking up, then, no problem, we are always on hand to help. A support vehicle is with the guided tours at all times.
Guides are local experts in history, heritage, flora and fauna. They know every gate, stile and pub!
