Enjoy a relaxed pace

 

Our guided walks are all run at a relaxed pace meaning we accommodate all abilities of walking. What’s more, we give you time to truly explore and experience the fascinating sites and locations on our itinerary. 

 

Go behind the doors at Stanway House

 

 

Home to the highest gravity fountain in the world and one of the finest examples of Jacobean architecture in the country we offer a picnic lunch at Stanway House, followed by an exclusive behind the doors tour of the house and historic watermill.

 

During your visit you will be given a highlight of a history of the area and an insider’s viewpoint of this fine historic house.

 

A Cotswold Showcase

 

Our guided tours showcase the very best of the Cotswolds and covers more of the local area – meaning you get a true picture of this stunning part of the world. 

 

The tour is based in two centres – Chipping Campden for three nights and historic Cirencester for three nights – with special visits to historical sites such as Blenheim Palace or Highclere Castle, home of Downton Abbey.

 

Our guided tours include all transfers to complete the walks and three dinners are included too at some of the best Cotswold country pubs and traditional inns, giving you a real taste of the Cotswolds.

 

A true Cotswold Experience

 

The Cotswolds is the largest of all the designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. As part of our guided walking tour you will experience much of its charming beauty, from Cotswold Stone walls to fine historic buildings and from ancient woodland to vast open grassland. 

 

The trails we walk are maintained by a band of volunteers called Cotswold Wardens who walk the trails year-round maintaining them. The Wardens have an exclusive insight into the Cotswolds AONB, that’s why we offer a special slide show by a Cotswold Warden as part of the tour, sharing many stories and secrets from the Cotswolds with you.
