With all the charm of a PG Wodehouse novel, the Cotswolds is a region blessed with beautiful villages and glorious countryside. It’s the place to indulge in a cream tea or five, explore Arts & Crafts gardens and the scenery that inspired Laurie Lee. Ideally you’d want to while away weeks of your holiday here, but for those pushed for time a great option is a newly launched tour from www.secretcottage.co.uk which offers the daytripper a six hour tour of the North Cotswolds. The day will include a stop at the ‘Secret Cottage’ for coffee, lunch and a cream tea, and visits to many picturesque hidden villages that most tourists rarely find.

An unforgettable tour – with a difference.
See how an English family live in the Cotswolds. Warm yourself by log fires; relax in the wild garden; explore the heavily beamed 400-year-old cottage with its elm floors and staircases; admire the interior-designed Elizabethan paint effects; and enjoy the Secret Cottage’ collection of paintings, and antiques.
No tour is ever the same. Depending on the time of year Secret Cottage may take you to:
a village fete,
watch Morris dancers at a local pub,
see the local hunt meet on Boxing Day,
visit a farmers’ market,
watch a duck race,
spot David Cameron the Prime Minister cycling to the pub or shopping in our local town,
drop in on a car boot sale at a stately home,
drive through lavender fields,
take pictures of the Rollright Stones,
visit Christmas fairs,
or look inside a dovecote
There’s a lot to do in the North Cotswolds!
You’ll not forget the tour which is packed with plenty of surprises. Secret Cottage will pick you up from Moreton-in-Marsh railway station at 10.15am and drop you back at 16.30pm. The tour cost is £85.
