Day 1

Following collection from home, travel to Wiltshire and the Blunsdon House Hotel for the four night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.


Day 2

Explore Batsford Arboretum, tucked away on the south facing escarpment of the Cotswolds hills, this jewel of the Cotswolds holds one of the largest collections of shrubs and trees. Take time to wonder through the ever changing landscape. Later, meander through typical Cotswolds villages, including the incredibly pretty village of Broadway, described as a typically English village, with honey coloured buildings clustered around the green. Continue on to Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as 'Little Venice' and regularly voted as one of the prettiest villages in England.

Day 3

Travel to Cirencester, the 'Capital of the Cotswolds' and second largest town in England during Roman times. John the Baptist Church dominates the market square and there is a fine Roman Museum worth visiting. This afternoon, visit Sudeley Castle Gardens, owned by Lord and Lady Ashcombe. There are nine award winning gardens sweeping round the castle, all with a unique style and design.

B, D

Day 4

Head eastward to Blenheim Palace, home of the Duke of Marlborough and the birthplace of Winston Churchill. The palace is a unique example of English baroque architecture. Inside, the scale of the palace is beautifully balanced by the intricate detail and delicacy of the carvings, the hand painted ceilings and the amazing porcelain collections, tapestries and painting displayed in each room. Return to the hotel via Burford with its magnificent trees lined main streets.
