We are delighted to offer this wonderful new tour for 2020. From our base near Stourport, we have an excellent selection of excursions with something for all, including a visit to Stokesay Castle, a working Victorian farm, safari park and a RAF Aerospace Museum. There is plenty to see and do on this 5 day break!
This charming 4 star country house hotel is set in 23 acres of beautiful grounds, and was formerly the home of Prime Minister Sir Stanley Baldwin. Hotel facilities include a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and spa. All bedrooms are ensuite and tastefully decorated with a television, telephone, free WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities.
Monday Departing our home areas, we make our way west travelling to Worcestershire. We reach the Stourport Manor Hotel late afternoon, where we are greeted by a welcoming cup of tea or coffee before time to settle in and dinner.
Tuesday This morning we head north to the Coalport China Museum, housing the exquisite collections of Coalport and Caughley China. Be amazed by the spectacular treasures made in this quirky building – from elaborate statuesque vases to hand-painted miniatures, they were made for everyone from wealthy families to Queens and Tsars. From here we make our way to the Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford. This exhibition has 70 aircraft dating back to wartime, memorabilia over the years and the National Cold War exhibition gives an insight into life behind the Iron Curtain. Later we return to the hotel for dinner.
Wednesday A morning visit for us to discover the delights of Worcester, with the scenic River Severn flowing through the city, why not visit the impressive Cathedral or obtain lunch? This afternoon we take a drive along the delightful Severn Valley, as we make our way to Bewdley, described as the most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire. We visit the West Midlands Safari Park, home to some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered exotic animal species. We enjoy tea/coffee and cakes before embarking on a Safari Drive with a knowledgeable park guide.
Thursday After breakfast, we take a ride north to Stokesay Castle. The castle is a survivor of 700 years of border and civil wars and is known as the best fortified manor house in Britain. From here we make for the little village of Acton Scott, where we visit the Historic Working Farm, conceived to keep 19th century farming practices alive. The farm offers a great insight into life on a Victorian country estate. Leaving here, we have a pleasant drive along Wenlock Edge to take a break in Much Wenlock before returning to the hotel.
Friday This morning we bid farewell to our hosts and make our way home after a relaxing break in Worcestershire.
