Cotswolds, Castles & The Wye Valley

From our base near Gloucester, we are ideally placed to explore the Cotswolds to the east and the beautiful Wye Valley to the west. We feast our eyes on architectural gems, Tewkesbury Abbey, Sudeley Castle and Gloucester Cathedral, as well as the spectacular scenery of the Wye Valley.

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Ledbury & Tewkesbury Abbey
This morning we have free time to explore Ledbury, which is home to a number of unique timber-framed buildings. Among them, we can admire the striking Market House and the large Ledbury Park house. We can also visit Ledbury Heritage Centre, Butcher Row House Museum and the 16th Century Painted Room featuring Elizabethan wall paintings. We then have time for lunch in Tewkesbury, before heading to Tewkesbury Abbey. We enjoy a 45 minute guided tour of the stunning Abbey, marvelling at the fine medieval architecture.

Day 3 Sudeley Castle & Cotswolds
We start our day at Sudeley Castle. With royal connections entwined in its 1,000-year history, the Castle remains the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds – Catherine Parr, who lived and died here. In the afternoon, we take a scenic drive through the Cotswolds. The charming village of Bourton on the Water is just half an hour from Sudeley and is regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England. We then drive through the delightful market town of Stow on the Wold before returning to our hotel.

Day 4 Gloucester, Ross on Wye & Symonds Yat
We spend this morning at leisure in Gloucester exploring its attractions, such as the medieval Cathedral, which was used in most of the Harry Potter films as Hogwarts. Time permitting, we could also take a 45 minute sail around the quays and docks. In the afternoon we head for Ross on Wye, considered by some as the best market town in the UK. After our visit we could detour to the spectacular Symonds Yat, renowned for is natural river scenery and the magnificent view from Symonds Yat Rock.
