Autumn Colours in the Golden Cotswolds

Autumn Colours in the Golden Cotswolds

You'll fall in love with autumn in the Cotswolds. Changing colours across the Cotswold landscape bring a new look to the countryside. Enjoy quieter moments in the pretty villages of Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton in Marsh, then discover historic Gloucester and picturesque Worcester. See, touch, smell and experience the brewing process at a working brewery in beautiful surroundings that will WOW you.

Day 1

Depart home area and travel to Gloucester stopping in Cirencester, known as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’, for lunch to be purchased. Continue to the hotel where we have a cup of tea/coffee
upon arrival. Time to freshen up for our evening meal.

D

Day 2

Today enjoy a coach excursion around the Cotswolds visiting Bourton-on-the-Water, known for its pretty waterside views and traditional stone houses and called the ‘Little Venice’ of the Cotswolds. Afterwards we head towards the delightful market town of Stow-on-the-Wold with free time here before our last stop of the day in Moreton-in-Marsh located at the head of the beautiful Evenlode Valley.

B, D

Day 3

After breakfast enjoy a morning in Gloucester, the cathedral city of the Cotswolds. Opportunity to visit Gloucester cathedral, the resting place of King Edward II and is a hugely popular film and TV location. Take a walk around the shops and visit many of the cafes and restaurants this city has to offer. In the afternoon we visit Weston's Cider for a guided tour followed by some tastings.

B, D

Day 4

After breakfast enjoy a coach excursion to Worcester, an attractive jumble of medieval, Tudor, Georgian and modern architecture which has a feel of a small town which is particularly easy to explore and get around. Time here to purchase lunch before continuing to Upton upon Severn, a pretty village situated on the edge of the Malvern Hills. Here we visit the famous Pudding Shop with opportunity to purchase some steamed puddings to take home.

B, D

Day 5

After breakfast we check out of the hotel and travel to Oxford for lunch to be purchased. Step onto the cobbled paths and lanes as we wander through the City of Dreaming Spires. The centre looks like an enchanted fairy tale city - so it’s no wonder Oxford is a firm favourite of filmmakers from all over the world; a place which has inspired countless famous writers over the centuries. Oxford is flat and compact so it’s the perfect place to explore on foot. We’ll find a wide variety of cafes and restaurants to whet our appetite before returning to home area.
