Itinerary

You start your unforgettable Cotswold journey from central Oxford, driving to Burford (the Gateway to the Cotswolds) through Minster Lovell, with its attractive thatched houses and ruined Hall. We then continue to Burford, the Gateway to the Cotswolds via the beautiful villages of Asthall and Swinbrook (home to the Mitford sisters).

Continuing through the former quarrying villages of Taynton and Great Barrington we arrive in Bourton-on-the-Water, the Venice of the Cotswolds – with its delightful bridges over the River Windrush - where you will make a stop for lunch.

After lunch we take a scenic drive to the enchanting village of Snowshill with its beautiful stone cottages and views of the Cotswold Hills. From Snowhill we head past the lavender fields and Broadway Tower to the delightful market town of Chipping Campden, the centre of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the Cotswolds. Here, you can browse in the quaint shops or visit the impressive ‘wool church’.

You return to Oxford, following a beautiful route which offers stunning views through the charming villages of Broad Campden and Blockley, with their thatched cottages.

We pass through the busy market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, with its art galleries and antiques shops and then return to Oxford via Chipping Norton and Woodstock, the site of Blenheim Palace (birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill).
