Heart of England | 2015/16

The Heart of England is one the UK's most iconic regions, encompassing Oxford, the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon and Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage site. On this five-day journey, we will visit Oxford and Lacock, explore quaint Cotswold villages famous for their charming honey-coloured stone cottages with thatched roofs, wander along historic village streets and explore traditional stately homes.
The Back-Roads Difference 
  • Travel at a leisurely pace, allowing more time to explore this region in depth
  • Dine on quality produce sourced from the best local suppliers
  • Stay in charming authentic accommodation, representative of the English countryside
  • Behind the scenes tour of Longleat Stately Home
  • Walk among the stones at Avebury, away from the tourist crowds
A Tour For All Seasons 
Why not see some of the Heart of England’s most iconic attractions at a time when there are fewer visitors? December is the ideal time to soak up the seasonal atmosphere of Bath’s traditional Christmas markets and learn how to make mince pies, accompanied by mulled wine, in our delightful Cotswold accommodation. Enjoy a local ale by the log fire of an old English pub and dine on traditional, hearty, winter cuisine.
