Off the Beaten Track in the Cotswolds


Despite its global popularity, the Cotswolds still harbor hidden gems and secret escapes that only true locals are aware of. With our extensive knowledge of the area, we are privy to these secrets, though we keep them close to our chests. However, we can offer you a glimpse into what awaits you in the Cotswolds, with the promise that the reality will far exceed your expectations when you join us for an off the beaten track experience.

Imagine taking a leisurely stroll down Broadway High Street and stumbling upon Kennel Lane, where you can meet the fox hounds kept behind the bustling street. Or perhaps you’d prefer to explore our family farm and witness how English farming traditions have persisted into the 21st century, as we ensure the preservation of our land for future generations. You could even discover hidden medieval wall paintings in a secluded church or trace the footsteps of Jane Austen as she visited her Uncle. Marvel at the very house where Lewis Carroll conceived the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland and the peculiar tree trunk that inspired J.R.R Tolkien. Savor a delectable lunch in a historic country pub or gather a selection of goodies from a local deli for a picturesque picnic in the fields.

As locals whose families have resided in the Cotswolds for centuries, we possess a wealth of captivating stories that intertwine our family heritage with the region’s history. This is what sets your time with us apart, as we curate a day centered around your interests and take you off the well-trodden tourist paths to showcase the hidden treasures of the Cotswolds.
