The Cotswold Tours
We’ve designed five different tours that cover different locations and preferences that you might have.

- The Half Day Tour – If you are on a whistle stop visit, this could be ideal for you
- The Oxfordshire Tour – The magnificent Blenheim Palace and Oxford
- The North Cotswold Tour – The glorious scenery areas to the north can share with you
- The Film Location Tour – Curious to see the stunning locations of Wolf Hall or Pride & Prejudice? Then this could be for you.
We are very flexible. If you have your own places that you want to visit then just tell us. We can tailor a tour to suit your needs and make it happen for you. Just go to our enquiry page and tell us what you would like to see.
About The Tours: a personal note from Iain
“Having owned a hotel in Tetbury for over 10 years I place a lot of importance on making sure you get the best out of your stay. For instance having strong relationships with many good restaurants and other hotels in the Cotswolds means I can recommend somewhere that will suit your needs every time.
Our tours have been created from the knowledge that we have gained from years of living in the Cotswolds. Over this time, I have also cycled the Cotswolds which I enjoyed so much that I started a cycling breaks company. So, if you want to be more energetic with your time here Cotswold Cycling Breaks might be for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Cotswolds.”

Whilst we tailor most tours around visiting some of the towns and villages listed on this page, we are very happy to create personal interest tours for you. For example, our architectural tour or the film location tour have proven to be popular.
Additionally, we can recommend great places for lunch like The Five Alls in Filkins or The Royal Oak in Tetbury. The Cotswolds is famous for its wool trade and we highly recommend the Cotswold Woolen Weavers for fine wool products and its authentic wool mill museum.
