Morgan Motors & Classic Cotswolds

The honey-coloured picture-postcard Cotswolds are our destination in this tour of one of the prettiest English rural areas. Based at the excellent Cheltenham Chase Hotel, we visit the famous Morgan Motor Company, award winning Bourton House Garden, timber-framed Ledbury, medieval Tewkesbury and glorious Gloucester.

Jodie says…
”The Cheltenham Chase is a perfect touring base and an ideal hotel for groups, having spacious public areas and great leisure facilities.”
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Morgan Motor Company & Ledbury
We spend this morning at the magnificent Morgan Motor Company where we enjoy a 2 hour guided tour of the factory, watching skilled craftsmen at work as they hand make the famous Morgan bespoke sports cars. In the afternoon, we visit the timber-framed village of Ledbury where we can explore its Heritage Centre, Butchers Row Folk Museum and the Painted Room leading to the fine parish church.

Day 3 Tewkesbury & Gloucester
Today we explore the medieval town of Tewkesbury in its picturesque riverside setting. Attractions include ‘Out of the Hat’, an exquisite example of a 17th century home and shop that now houses a Heritage Centre, Church Street, lined with half-timbered houses, Tewkesbury Museum and Tewkesbury Abbey. After lunch, we travel to Gloucester where we can spend free time exploring its medieval Cathedral (used in most of the Harry Potter films as ‘Hogwarts’) or visiting the Victorian docks and the award winning Gloucester Waterways Museum overlooking the River Severn.

Day 4 Cotswolds & Bourton House Garden
Today, we travel through the pretty Cotswolds villages of Bourton-on-the-Water (regularly voted as one of the prettiest villages in England) Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh en route to Bourton House Garden. One of the finest attractions in the Cotswolds, this award winning three acre garden surrounds a fine 18th century manor house. In the afternoon, we continue on our circular drive, spending some time in Broadway, often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’, before returning to our hotel.
