Guided Walking in Britain

The Cotswolds   

The Cotswolds is a pretty region of Western England near the border of Wales. For a week the walking holidays are based in the quaint town of Bourton-on-the-Water and from here we walk on country foot-paths that have been used since medieval times. See heritage houses and medieval churches, atmospheric country estates and prehistoric burial mounds. Chichester is a market town of Roman origin. Hidcote Manor Gardens are one of the greatest gardens in the country. We visit a stone circle 4,000 years old and ramble through villages like Upper Slaughter. There is always time to enjoy afternoon tea and crumpets or quaff an ale in a pub.
