Packed with ideas for great days out, Discover Britain is the leading magazine for British travel. You’ll find news and features on castles, stately homes, cities and countryside along with articles on British heritage, culture and traditions. It’s the perfect magazine to plan your holiday whether you live in the British Isles or are visiting from abroad.
No other historic travel magazine is focused entirely on Britain’s history and heritage sites which is why we were thrilled to be featured on their site recently for our six hour Cotswold Tour.

Take a bespoke tour of the Cotswolds
With all the charm of a PG Wodehouse novel, the Cotswolds is a region blessed with beautiful villages and glorious countryside. It’s the place to indulge in a cream tea or five, explore Arts & Crafts gardens and the scenery that inspired Laurie Lee.
Ideally you’d want to while away weeks of your holiday here, but for those pushed for time a great option is a newly launched tour from www.secretcottage.co.uk which offers the daytripper a six hour tour of the North Cotswolds. The day will include a stop at the ‘Secret Cottage’ for coffee, lunch and a cream tea, and visits to many picturesque hidden villages that most tourists rarely find.
An unforgettable Cotswold tour – with a difference.
See how an English family live in the Cotswolds. Warm yourself by log fires; relax in the wild garden; explore the heavily beamed 400-year-old cottage with its elm floors and staircases; admire the interior-designed Elizabethan paint effects; and enjoy the Secret Cottage’ collection of paintings, and antiques.
No tour is ever the same. Depending on the time of year Secret Cottage may take you to:
- a village fete,
- watch Morris dancers at a local pub,
- see the local hunt meet on Boxing Day,
- visit a farmers’ market,
- watch a duck race,
- spot David Cameron the Prime Minister cycling to the pub or shopping in our local town,
- drop in on a car boot sale at a stately home,
- drive through lavender fields,
- take pictures of the Rollright Stones,
- visit Christmas fairs,
- or look inside a dovecote
There’s a lot to do in the North Cotswolds!
You’ll not forget the tour which is packed with plenty of surprises. Secret Cottage will pick you up from Moreton-in-Marsh railway station at 10.15am and drop you back at 16.30pm. The tour cost is £85.
