Our 'Hidden Cotswolds' Curated Tour is a very different kind of experience.

Our Curated Experiences are the tour equivalent of a 3 Star Michelin Tasting Experience.  

We immerse those looking to truly experience England in the beauty, culture, cuisine, heritage of our region.   Each 'Curated Experience' is a chocolate-box adventure that combines history, landscapes, stories, dining & a personalised approach to create a truly magical & unforgettable experience.

We take care of every little detail, cover every cost, & tailor the experience around you so you can relax & focus on enjoying an extraordinary experience... 

Our guides are also exceptional.  Each one is a talented story-teller but also highly insightful, thoughtful & engaging.  The conversations you'll share will likely be about more than simply the tour...

On this tour, you'll explore a quiet, ancient town that was once at the heart of England's history for over 1000 years to reveal the lives of great kings, pious saints and righteous monks. You'll find yourself immersed in the best of English hospitality and cuisine, listening to stories over morning coffee at the oldest hotel in England, lunching at an idyllic country pub. You'll venture down tiny country lanes to find yourself enveloped by stunning countryside, watched closely by wary sheep as you pass sleepy villages, over hills and besides ancient cottages.  You’ll stumble upon hidden gems, enjoy tea in gardens of a grand country house, explore forgotten villages and enjoy a short walk in the midst of nature...

You'll return feeling like a local, having experienced an England most visitors never see and having made memories you'll treasure forever.

Join us and Explore authentic England...

We guarantee your time with us will be the Highlight of your Trip.
