Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold

At nearly 800ft, Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns, located on the Roman Fosse Way and at the point where several roads meet, hence an important trading centre. It has a long history; it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill and had a special importance in the English Civil War. The last battle was fought close by in Donnington back in 1646.

Stop At: Bibury

Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a 20-minute drive from Bourton-on-the-Water. It’s easy to see why William Morris called Bibury ‘The most beautiful village in England’ – wonderful stone buildings strung out along the banks of the River Coln. Arlington Row, owned by the National Trust, is one of England’s most iconic and photographed sites – it even appears on the inside cover of UK passports! Originally built in the 14th century as a monastic wool store, it was converted in the 17th century into a row of weavers’ cottages.
