Weekly (Monday pm) from Stratford Upon Avon, from 9 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 fit you up with bikes and get you ready to cycle 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 the Manor in Moreton in Marsh after a ride of about 20 miles (which can be extended or reduced depending on preference).
Mileage: 10-20 miles
We ride 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 33 miles although we can shorten the day should you want a few less miles.
Mileage: 20-33 miles
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 picturesque Cotswolds right into the Palace with routes from around 20 miles through to over 40. We will finish the tour either at Blenheim or after a few additional miles in the afternoon when we we help you to organise your ongoing travel arrangements.
Mileage: 23-40 miles
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.
