What to expect on a Private Cotswolds Tour
Our driver-guide will pick up your group (up to 7 people) at 10am from your location of choice in the Cotswolds. We use a luxury Japanese MPV which is very comfortable and its height gives great views over the surrounding countryside. We then drive leisurely through stunning countryside and secret Cotswold villages using traffic free country lanes. Your guide will give you a background of the areas history as you drive and at each of the stops you are free to either explore the village with your guide or to have some free time to explore, relax and maybe do a little spot of shopping. As this is your tour you are free to spend your time as you please! If you want more free time in a certain place, no problem! If you want to skip somewhere or enjoy a spontaneous pint somewhere, no problem! Jump out to take a photo? You are the boss! We tend to stop for lunch in a traditional country pub and some guests like to enjoy afternoon tea in a traditional tearoom or a pint of ale out in the sunshine. We will drop you back at your hotel at the end of the tour- usually around 6pm.
Our Vehicle- Can seat up to 7 guests
As this is a custom tour we will try and build a fun day out based on your preferences and wishes.
As a guide, some of the villages/landmarks in the North Cotswolds we may visit include the following.
Snowshill- one of the hidden gems of the Cotswolds that never fails to leave an impression on those who visit. Enchanting village famous for the nearby lavender fields and with nice manor house and stunning church.
The Slaughters- both Lower and Upper Slaughter are set in the most amazing countryside and offer a quieter take on the Cotswolds with their beautiful honey-stone cottages and picture postcard views.
Bourton-on-the-Water- Arguably the most famous Cotswolds town on the River Windrush with nice village green and high street full of interesting shops and restaurants.
Chipping Campden-a picturesque Cotswolds town with many historical buildings and a wonderful church. The oldest buildings date back to the 14th century and it was once home to the Guild of Handicrafts.
Broadway Tower- built in 1798 and at over 1000 feet has become a landmark of the Cotswolds. Once the home of William Morris it has been featured in many historical TV programmes.
Stow-on-the-Wold- historical market town built by the Normans with a nice mixture of gardens, manor houses, quaint cottages, interesting shops and cosy tea rooms all surrounded by quintessential Cotswold countryside.
Stanton- one of the prettier villages in the Cotswolds and as it is not highly touristed it is often quiet and tranquil. Its 16th and 17th century cotswold stone cottages and comfortable pub make this an enjoyable stop.
Stanway- pretty cotswold village and Jacobean Manor House still owned by the Earl of Wemys- complete with water fountain that rises to over 300 feet making it the tallest gravity fed fountain in the world.
