Cotswolds Capers

Cotswolds Capers

The famous honeyed hue of the classical Cotswolds comes alive with colour and creativity as we discover gems off the beaten track – the majestically Moghul Sezincote and a cruise on the Kennet & Avon.

Your Itinerary

Thursday 9th: We leave our home area during the morning and travel via Worcester before arriving at our hotel for a welcome tea or coffee.

Friday 10th: A Moghul confection in the Cotswolds, nothing quite prepares you for Sezincote - a unique and extraordinary Indian-influenced stately home set admidst the Cotswold Hills. Embark on a 1 hour private guided tour of the architecture designed in the Mogul style of Rajasthan, with its romantic water garden with pools, waterfalls, a grotto and a temple to the Hindu Sun God, largely unchanged since the mid-19th century. We return via the elegant English town of Stow-on-the-Wold which offers a fine selection of shops, gift and craft shops, restaurants and tea rooms.

Saturday 11th: Today we travel through the delightful tangle of gloriously golden villages and spend a free day in the iconic city of Gloucester. Never complete without the sight of the iconic 11th Century Cathedral, resting place of King Edward II, and also where 9 year old King Henry III was crowned in 1216.
Sunday 12th: This morning we make our way to the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the city of Bath. Here you can enjoy some of its colourful history. This afternoon we step back in time and savour the peace and tranquility of a wonderful 2 hour cruise on the Kennet & Avon Canal. During the journey, enjoy a cream tea consisting of a locally baked fruit scone with homemade jam and clotted cream, a slice of handmade sponge cake and a cup of tea.

Monday 13th: After breakfast we return home via Stratford Upon Avon.
