Take in the Cotswolds with European Experiences

Women-only trip – a week in one place. The Cotswolds is the English countryside you’ve dreamed of… an idyllic land of rolling hills, gentle streams, grazing sheep, and quaint stone cottages. The well-preserved town of Chipping Campden, with its lovely High Street, is our home for the week. Our week includes historic castles, magnificent gardens, quaint villages, traditional pubs, countryside walks, and much more.

Highlights of our week in the Cotswolds include:

  • Picturesque villages and towns as intriguing as their names: Chipping Campden, Broadway, Moreton-in-Marsh, Snowshill, and Winchcombe. We’ll enjoy a special walking tour of Chipping Campden with a resident (a voluntary Cotswold warden), an opportunity to learn much more about the history and architecture of this town that’s our home for the week.
  • The beautiful English gardens at Hidcote Manor and Kiftsgate and the Cotswold lavender farm.
  • Optional visits to one or two other gardens are possible.
  • Sudeley Castle, one of England’s most famous castles, with a history extending almost 1000 years.
  • One of its best-known residents was Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIII’s six wives.
  • Blenheim Palace, one of England’s largest country houses, with extensive parks and gardens. Home of the Dukes of Marlborough since 1705, it was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • The ruins of Hailes Abbey, a 13th-century abbey dissolved by Henry VIII in 1539.
  • Prehistoric ruins at the Rollright Stones, a circle of 77 stones that dates to 3000 BC.
  • Market day at Moreton-on-Marsh.
  • A day in Stratford-upon-Avon, a lively town just north of the Cotswolds, known for its most famous resident, William Shakespeare.
  • Typical British experiences, including strolls in the countryside and pub visits.
  • Memorable meals in beautiful settings, including our hotel’s outstanding restaurant, a restaurant known for its tradition of British “puddings,” and a historic village pub that just may be haunted.
