Join us for this new tour as we enjoy a unique Snowdrop experience. Set in the beautiful Churn in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, Colesbourne Park has been the home of the Elwes family since 1789. The park has collected over 250 varieties and offers wonderful gardens and spectacular woodland.
The Mercure Bowden Hall Hotel is located at Upon St Leonards on the outskirts of Gloucester. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, this classically styled hotel has Regency décor and charming rooms. All bedrooms are en-suite with a TV, telephone, hair dryer and tea/coffee making facilities. Although the hotel does not have a lift, there are some ground floor rooms available on request.
Friday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive to Gloucestershire we travel by way of Moreton in Marsh and Cleeve Hill to delightful Cheltenham then on to our hotel arriving mid-afternoon. On arrival we are greeted by a welcome tea/coffee and biscuits before time to relax and dinner.
Saturday This morning we make our way into the historic Cathedral City of Gloucester. We have chance to explore and obtain lunch before making our way to Colesbourne Park this afternoon. Recognised as ‘England’s Greatest Snowdrop Garden’ by Country Life, we have the afternoon to enjoy the woodland, lakeside paths and gardens. From here we head back to the hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Sunday After breakfast we bid farewell to our hosts and make our way home. Our route sees us climb steep Cooper Hill to the pretty village of Painswick then on to make a stop in Roman Cirencester. This afternoon we complete our journey, arriving late-afternoon we are greeted by our awaiting taxis.
