Treat your family – whether kids or ‘kids at heart’! – to some fun by creating your perfect itinerary, picking the activities most suited to you. We design our tours to maximise time in the fresh air and with the wind in your hair. Whether you wish to go walking, cycling or try out some fun water sports, we’ll make sure there’s plenty of countryside and coast to see, and can include visits to our incredible World Heritage Sites – including the City of Bath, Oxford, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Blenheim Palace and more. We have a range of activities to choose from throughout the South; Cotswolds, Cornwall, Devon and beyond. 

Return to Nature and Reconnect with Each Other

Discover the real England, travelling as a private family group to escape the crowds and reconnect with each other and nature. Explore England, in your own time, at your own pace, led by our exceptional guiding team.

We can turn any tour we run into a private trip, or create a new trip from scratch to suit your  family exactly – whether you want more time biking through valleys, hiking the coast, paddling down rivers, or swimming in the ocean – there is a tour for everyone. Pick your accommodation style – staying in the best coastal hotels, cosiest country pubs, or spending your evenings around a firepit and sleeping in Shepherd’s huts – we have accommodation options to suit all!
