The Golden Road
This tour takes a delightful, winding route through the
famously honey coloured stone villages of the Northern
Cotswolds. From Lechlade to Chipping Campden you’ll
visit some of the most picturesque towns and villages in
The so called “golden villages” of Snowshill, Stanton,
Stanway, Broadway and Chipping Campden capture the very
essence of old England, so enchanting with the golden
hue of the local stone in their ancient buildings.
Passing manor houses large and small, quaint old
villages, country estates, tranquil river settings and
even a castle, this is old England at its best.
We also visit some lesser known but absolutely charming
hamlets and villages which are a bit further from “the
beaten track” and so often missed by visitors.
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to take a leisurely
stroll and explore the places we pass through, with no
need to rush. As with most of our tours, there will be
time for lunch at a country pub if you wish, whilst
later on you can pause for a lazy afternoon tea at one
of our favourite spots.
This is an easy going tour along a gloriously scenic
route. Relax and enjoy!
