How do we arrive in the Cotswolds?

There is a very good regular train network to the Cotswolds from London Paddington to Oxford Central and to Kingham, or London Marylebone to Oxford Parkway.
There is an excellent service to Cheltenham Spa, or to and from Kemble.
Mark will collect you and return you to any of these stations.

Will there be stops for comfort breaks, Loo stops, WC, Restrooms or Toilet

There are lots of facilities in most villages and towns. We can easily make a detour.
There will always be lots of change for "Pay Facilities".

Can We take a two or three day tour?
Of course. There is so much to see in the Cotswolds. 2 or 3 days touring would be interesting, exciting, and fascinating. There would be no repetition of attractions.

My mother is in a wheelchair and would like to take a Cotswold Tour. Can you help us?

Of course We can!. There is plenty of space in the back of the vehicle for a folding wheelchair, and with the aid of a step there is easy access through the large sliding doors.
The middle row of seats could also be removed to allow easy access for a wheelchair.This would of course reduce the number of passengers to 4 plus your mother.
We could then tailormake a special tour for your mother, so that she could see the attractions that she would like to see.

Why should we choose Best Cotswold Tours?

I was born in the Cotswolds, and have lived and farmed in the area for many years. I have  a vast in depth knowledge of the area. I can show you areas of the Cotswolds that few people know about, and have  a vast knowledge of everyday Cotswold Life.
I love meeting and chatting to people.

Will we stop for lunch and/or tea

Lunch will be taken in one of the many and varied Pubs or Cafes. There are many small independent tea shops, cafes, and village tea rooms in most Cotswold villages. Any dietary requirements are required at the time of booking.
