Author Diz White loves our Cotswold Tour!

The other day we told you about a fantastic book called Cotswolds Memoir, by author Diz White.

It’s a laugh-out-loud, feel good book that is perfect for helping you unwind after a busy day!

And it’s been voted #1 Best Seller in British Travel on Kindle.

Diz is a nature lover, foodie, history buff, hiker and a “lookey loo”.

Never heard of a lookey loo? Well it means Diz can’t get enough of viewing old houses!

Which means our Cotswold Tour and Diz are a match made in heaven.

And it’s this very reason we created the Secret Cottage Tour.

I think most of us are secret Lookey Loos – we all love people watching, are curious about how other’s live and we’d love an invite to poke around people’s houses.

The Secret Cottage Tour allows you to do exactly that.

It’s like immersing yourself in a real life reality show as you spend time with a typical English family!

Not only will we take you out to picturesque villages, hidden locations and places seeped in history throughout the Cotswolds, but you’ll get to spend time with us at home.

We’ll provide you with morning coffee and pastries, a full buffet lunch and the best bit – a traditional cream tea complete with scones made in our AGA.

Our tour operates all year round so you might get to eat with us in our wild garden, at the kitchen table next to the AGA or infront of one of our ingelnook fireplaces; depending on the weather.

And when we can drag you away from your comfy seat we’ll take you out in our air conditioned mini bus to show you some of the breathtaking Cotswold scenery that has inspired artists, poets and authors for centuries.

Visitors to our Cotswold Tour are overwhelmed by the experience of being invited into a private home and many describe it as ‘fairyland’. It’s a chance for you to fully relax while someone else does the driving down those narrow country lanes and provides the food.

Diz has recently written about us on her blog – her site is well worth a read as her blog is filled with stunning images of the Cotswolds along with recipes, places of local interest and National Trust Properties to inspire you.

Here are some of the fantastic places you might see if you take a tour with us:
