Cotswolds & Wales Driver Guided Tour


Cotswolds & Welsh borders - a driver guide tour

The beautiful areas of the Welsh Marches and the delightful Cotswolds are combined in one leisurely paced driver-guided tour. The soft honey-colored Cotswold villages give way to the jagged tors and huddled ridges of Shropshire, undulating Welsh pastures and distinctive half-timbered houses in Herefordshire.

In valleys of springs of rivers,
By Onny and Tame and Clun,
The county for easy livers,
The quietest under the sun. "
A Shropshire Lad" A. E. Housman
