After the festivities are over, now is the chance to recharge your batteries and enjoy some time away on our Twixmas in the Cotswolds break. Enjoy the delightful English cities of Cheltenham and Gloucester and take some time to reflect in the heart of England with visits to Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.
Day 1 – Following our door-to-door pickups we begin our leisurely journey to Worcester for a 3 nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast getaway with evening entertainment.
Day 2 – This morning we visit Cheltenham for free time. Designed in the 18th and 19th century as a pleasure health resort for wealthy visitors, the legacy today leaves an exceptional range of quality restaurants and entertainment in an elegant town, where many of the regency, architecture and heritage features can still be seen today. Later today we also travel to Gloucester, an important English city, boasting over 2,000 years of history. Film fans can explore Gloucester Cathedral where episodes of BBC’s Sherlock and Wolf Hall have been filmed.
Day 3 – Today we enjoy free time in the ‘typically English’ Cotswolds villages of Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh. The Cotswolds once described as a place where time stood still for more than 300 years are famous for their areas of water meadows, beech woods, ancient limestone villages and historic market towns.
Day 4 – After breakfast we have a little bit of free time in Worcester, one of England’s loveliest Cathedral cities, before our journey home.
