An Example Itiniterary
I suggest that the first town on our Cotswolds tour from Oxford should be Burford. It is a beautiful old town with its High street sloping from the High Wolds. A fine medieval three arched bridge crosses the River Windrush at the bottom of the hill.
Stow on the Wold
This would be our second stop. It is the highest of the Cotswold towns, standing 800 feet above sea level.
The vast market square testifies to the importance at the height of the Cotswold wool trade – when 20,000
sheep might be sold at one market.
This is the second highest point in the Cotswolds. The views from the edge of the Cotswolds escarpment are truly stunning. James Wyatt designed the Tower to resemble a mock Castle. It was built in 1799 for Lady Coventry so she could see it from her home at Croome Court.
The Morris Brown cafe at Broadway Tower is a great place to stop for a bite of lunch.
I thoroughly recommend travelling to Chipping Campden. The main street curves in a shallow arc lined with a succession of ancient houses each linked together. The 17th Century Market Hall is one of the highlights
Maybe these villages are some of the most unspoilt in the Cotswolds. Both Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter have the river Eye running through them. The local attraction in Lower Slaughter is a converted flour mill. Here the large water wheel can still be seen – it’s an idylic spot!
Return to Oxford or somewhere else in the Cotswolds
After a fun and informative day we will then transport you back to your Oxford accommodation or perhaps
somewhere in the heart of the Cotswolds.
