A successful break in 2023, it gives us pleasure to return to the West Country - boasting some of our country’s prettiest scenery, with its wooded hillsides and gentle valleys interspersed by meandering rivers. Our tour is based on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, and includes two cruises, a visit to ‘Poldark’s Trenwith, time in historic Gloucester and a tour of the Wye Valley.
