Day 4

Today we set off on a wonderful scenic drive into the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. Our first stop is Stow-on-the-Wold, a quintessential English town with mellow Cotswolds stone buildings, a fine selection of shops, chic bistros, Cotswolds inns and cosy tea shops. Continuing through the countryside we enjoy an extended stop in Bourton-on-the-Water. Regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England, there is a unique appeal with a wealth of attractions and shops, restaurants and tea rooms or simply enjoy tranquil time by the River Windrush with its beautiful bridges. Our afternoon stop is Burford, with a broad main high street lined with old houses, cottages and shop fronts which appear to have changed little for hundreds of years. We return to our hotel via the rolling scenery of the Cotswolds hills.
