1. From Bath: Cotswolds Private Day Tour with Pickup
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. Thereafter, your journey continues towards the ancient market town of Burford, This idyllic town is one of the very oldest in all of England and has evolved over 900 years. It is famous for its picturesque and thriving High Street containing several medieval inns as well as cafes and stores. Burford developed in conjunction with Cotswolds wool weaving, stonemasonry, milling and brewing industries over the centuries. Pop in to see the historic St. John the Baptist Norman church and enjoy a traditional pub lunch in or near the town. The tour continues through the heart of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty towards the idyllic twin villages of Upper & Lower Slaughter. 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. Your final stop of Tetbury is the home town of The King and Queen Camilla and neighbours their Highgrove Estate. Discover more about its fascinating history as a market town, famous in the past for the local wool and yarn industry. 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. Why not pop in to buy a souvenir from His Majesty's Highgrove Shop. You will either be dropped off at your accommodation or in the centre of Bath. This will definitely be a day to remember.
