Private Highlights Tour of the Cotswolds with a Driver Guide

The Cotswolds offer idyllic charm for the perfect day out anywhere in England.

Our day will include rural villages and market towns of thatched cottages, dry-stoned walls and mellow honey-coloured limestone houses - in a special area of outstanding natural beauty.

There is a unique warmth and character to this most beautiful of locations, where a typical appearance of natural tranquility might be the site of sheep grazing in the shadow of charming village churches.

The best way to experience the very heart of the Cotswolds area, sleepy backwaters such as Bibury, Burford, Broadway or Bourton-on-the-Water is by motor transport but off the main road and through the minor roads.

Join me on a journey that is the definition of rural charm, old-world character lost in time in a maze of lanes in the English Countryside.


I shall Meet and Greet you from your Hotel in Bath, or preferred pick-up location in and around the Bath area.

Relax en route to the medieval market town of Tetbury in the heart of the Cotswolds which lies on the site of an ancient hill fort - I know the perfect coffee bar here for us to go over the day of exploration.

We shall get to the stunning Village of Bibury with its architecturally conserved weavers cottages, before visiting more beautiful locations.

During our memorable day together I shall get you to many of the most picturesque hamlets and villages with their pretty cottages, fine buildings, gardens and churches in this most scenic of corners of England.

Some of the places that we shall find among the rolling hills are Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-the-Marsh and Chipping Campden - which by their very sound might evoke a wonderful image in your mind.

Sit back and relax enjoying more pleasant scenery en route back to your Hotel.

Meeting location: I shall meet and greet you in the hotel lobby where you are staying - or any preferred pick-up location in the Bath or Cotswolds area.
