Starting at the Southern edge of the Cotswolds we take you to Cirencester, the site of the Roman town of Corinium, which was second only to London in size. The Corinium museum contains a wealth of Roman artefacts and several outstanding mosaic floors.  We then travel to Chedworth Roman Villa with one of the most extensive set of Roman mosaics in Britain Then if there is time, we would like to take you to Bibury to see the ancient cottages of Arlington Row, originally a monastic wool store, converted into dwellings in the 17th century. Linger a while and count how many trout you can see in the River Coln as it flows through the village. You stay overnight in or around Cirencester in a comfortable bed and breakfast or small hotel depending on your choice. For those of you wishing to visit gardens,  we travel further North earlier in the day and visit the National Trust garden at Hidcote manor. It is one of the best-known and most influential Arts and Crafts gardens in Britain, with its linked "rooms" of hedges, rare trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders. Created by Lawrence Johnston in the 1920s.

Day 2
From your overnight stay near Cirencester you travel along the Fosseway, originally built by the Romans, to the village of Bourton-on-the-Water. The river Windrush cuts the village in two and is crossed by five stone bridges. From here we take you through beautiful Cotswold countryside and small roads to Temple Guiting, Snowshill and Broadway, wonderful villages where everything is built from golden stone from the garden walls to the roof tiles. From here we start to head home calling in at Chipping Camden, a beautiful town built on the wealth of the wool industry. One of the finest buildings is St James’s church, originally built by the Normans but transformed in 1450-1500.
If you would like to take the opportunity of visiting the Cotswolds while you are with us please let us know when you make your booking.  There is a small added charge for this tour to cover the overnight stay away from Church House. The tour is subject to availability of suitable accommodation in the Cotswolds.
