We will meet you at Moreton in Marsh Station at around 9am, a short 90 minute journey from London, and drop you luggage off at your hotel before setting straight off on the first of our beautiful Cotswold walks through the majestic countryside, taking in some of the most well-known towns and villages including Chipping Campden, with options to visit Bourton on the Water and The Slaughters. For lunch we eat in the stunning Hidcote Gardens, returning to Moreton in Marsh in the evening.
Mileage: 4-9 miles
We head out from the hotel through the beautiful hills to start our second of our Cotswold walks at Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born and a World Heritage Site. With 3000 acres of Capability parkland to explore, today’s Cotswold walk is a stunning wander around lakes, serpentine streams, woodland and into the Palace itself for a tour in the afternoon. We travel into Oxford in the evening for a walk through the historical university town and a dinner out in the city. We stay in the golden stoned market town of Burford, Gateway to the Cotswolds.
Mileage: 4-8 miles
We travel from Burford to the stunning White Horse Hill to see the beautiful ancient carving atop the Ridgeway. The last of our Cotswold walks takes us to an ancient long barrow – the burial mound Wayland’s smithy – and around to a Bronze Age Fort with views stretching across the Thames valley. After lunch in the White Horse pub in Woolstone we travel onto Avebury (Stonehenge but bigger) and then Stonehenge itself to complete our Neolithic Day.
Your 3 day guided walking tour ends in the late afternoon after Stonehenge, where we help guests with their ongoing travel arrangements.
London is a 1.5hour train journey from Salisbury station, or many guests choose to stay for dinner and an extra night in the spa city of Bath at the end of their tour.
Mileage: 4-8 miles
