Visit several of the Cotswolds’ most picturesque gardens and learn about farm life from the Countryfile presenter

The tranquil rolling countryside of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire is amongst the finest in the UK. Well-loved for its honey-coloured houses, limestone hills and ancient pubs, the Cotswolds are a perfect example of quintessential English countryside and attract visitors from all over the world.

On this exclusive tour of the Cotswolds' finest gardens, you'll explore this beautiful region at the end of the summer, in its full golden glory.

You'll enjoy guided visits to Batsford Arboretum, Sezincote House and Gardens, and Painswick Rococo Garden. There are also visits to two charming properties on the itinerary, Sudeley Castle and Gardens and Chedworth Roman Villa

The highlight of this tour will be a very special welcome to the Cotswold Farm Park from its charismatic owner, Adam Henson. Adam was born on the 650-hectare farm, which belonged to his father Joe Henson, and now runs it with his business partner Duncan.

Adam will join you for a private lunch and give a talk about his conservation work and sustainable farming as well as his role as a TV presenter. You'll also have plenty of time to explore the farm which specialises in rare breeds.

This trip will also include an indulgent afternoon tea at the historic Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway and free time to enjoy Chipping Campden, one of the area's most delightful market towns.

You'll be staying at the four-star Hilton Puckrup, a four-star hotel set in 140 acres of private grounds. It's the perfect base for discovering the joys of the famous Cotswolds countryside.
