For our Really Rather Special Tour, we have combined our most stunning and interesting cycling routes in the Cotswolds with what we think are absolutely outstanding and characterful hotels. All are country houses in beautiful settings with tip top service. All have excellent restaurants and a number have spas. In fact you might want to relax for a day or so and leave your bike idle. Tailoring the itinerary and distances for you, this is the perfect way to enjoy the magic of the Cotswolds. If you like to have a knowledgeable local guide to lead you, we will be delighted to provide one. And if you prefer to have a support vehicle, we are very happy to include one. We have no doubt that we can create a really rather special Cotswolds experience just for you.

The itinerary outlines all the hotels we feel fit into this tailor made tour and the sample price given below is illustrative and includes 5 nights accommodation and breakfast at Le Manoir Oxford, Foxhill Manor Broadway, Lords of The Manor Upper Slaughter, Barnsley House Bibury and Whatley Manor Malmesbury, 4 days of self led cycling of your chosen distance with all biking equipment, route notes or GPS, maps and transfers where required, airport transfer at the start of the tour and return to Oxford at the end of the tour, all luggage transfers, host briefing, entrance to Blenheim Palace and grounds, and a guided cycle tour of Oxford.
