What you can expect

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

Continuing through the quarrying villages of Taynton and the Barringtons to Bourton-on-the-Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds – with its delightful bridges over the River Windrush).

From Bourton-on-the-Water our route takes us through some enchanting Cotswold villages to Broadway – the village which inspired artists and writers, such as Frank Millet, J M Barrie and William Morris.

After a lunch stop we continue on to the beautiful market town of Chipping Campden, often considered the centre of the Arts and Crafts movement in the Cotswolds and then on to Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds. Here you can browse amongst the narrow footpaths and the antique shops and art galleries. We return to Oxford via the bustling market town of Chipping Norton with our final stop in Woodstock, the site of Blenheim Palace (birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill).
