This holiday wanders through the classic hills and valleys of Cotswold country with its picturesque honey coloured villages and peaceful streams. And through its hidden tracks, it leads from the heart of one bustling historic town to another.

The graceful contours of Cotswolds lanes and bridleways provide much of the route with the tranquil Oxford Canal leading to Blenheim Palace. Stop and explore Cotswold market towns, several famed gardens, thatched inns, lavender fields and marvellous vistas. Discover Shakespeare’s history in Stratford upon Avon and enjoy the spirit of Oxford - a magical combination.
