DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Today we visit Bourton-On-The-Water for free time. Located amongst the gentle rolling hills of the Cotswolds, Bourton-On-The-Water is often known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ because of its attractive little bridges that cross gently over the River Windrush.
Day 2 – After breakfast we travel to Ashton Court Estate, once the home of the Smyth family, this historic park which covers 850 acres of woods and grasslands is now the home to Bristol’s International Balloon Fiesta. The Fiesta is a truly a sight that must be seen to be believed, alongside the fantastic site of hot air balloons filing the skies, there are also a number of stalls, fairground rides and entertainment provided throughout the day.
Day 3 – Before returning home, we visit Bath for free time. Built for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. Bath’s compact centre is flowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain, making it a popular destination.
