This tour combines walking and cycling and enables you to enjoy the full variety of the magical Cotswolds area with its beautiful hills and picture postcard valleys.

Our carefully tailored route gives you fabulous views on foot at Stow on Wold and Broadway Tower and gentle pedalling takes you along the gorgeous Windrush valley and to the honey-coloured stone villages at Burford and Bourton-on-water (or Lower Slaughter for the luxury tour) and Chipping Campden, where you stay for two nights.

In addition to these well known gems, you will discover many of our other favourite spots such as Minster Lovell Hall and Snowshill Manor. From delicious farm shop stops to ancient church wall paintings, lavender fields and cosy pub stops you will experience the full array of treasures the Cotswolds have to offer.
