This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Castle Combe

The day begins in Castle Combe, which is surely one of the most photographed villages in all of England. Little has changed here since the 15th century - no street lights or TV aerials. This mediaeval gem is famous for its picturesque cottages and babbling brook. Nestled in a wooded Cotswold valley, Castle Combe has been a favourite Hollywood filming location over the years for movies including War Horse, Stardust and Doctor Dolittle.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Bourton-on-the-Water

The tour continues through the heart of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty towards Bourton-on-the-Water. This idyllic village is famous for its honey-coloured stone houses and is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds. Enjoy some free time as you wander along the River Windrush with its beautiful low footbridges. Explore the quaint local shops and maybe sample a local beverage.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Lower Slaughter

Nearby, Lower Slaughter was named the prettiest village in England in 2021 and it’s easy to see why. A location trapped in time, where wonderful photo opportunities await you amongst flower-draped cottages, romantic footbridges, and an idyllic water mill nestling on the banks of the River Eye. Maybe wander between Lower and Upper Slaughter (weather dependent). This tranquil corner of the Cotswolds countryside is like walking through a painting. Alternatively, enjoy a leisurely lunch in the charming country inn, where you can sample local dishes and maybe treat yourself to a decadent cream tea.

Duration: 3 hour

Stop At:

Thereafter, your journey continues on towards Tetbury, which is the home town of HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and the Duchess of Cornwall. Discover more about its fascinating history as a market town, famous in the past for the local wool and yarn industry. Pop into some of the fabulous upmarket shops and maybe buy a souvenir from the famous Highgrove Shop. Walk down the Chipping Steps, an old entrance to the town and admire the picturesque weaver’s cottages. The centre of Tetbury is a conservation area and many buildings are hundreds of years old. Admire the architecture and enjoy the rarified feel of this pretty town. Journey back to the delightful Georgian City of Bath, where you will either be dropped off at your accommodation or in the centre of town. This will definitely be a day to remember.
