Our private family-run 6-hour Cotswolds tour takes guests on a magical 6-hour tour of the North Cotswolds. The Secret Cottage Tour pick guests up from Moreton-in-Marsh train station which has a direct route from London Paddington (taking 1 hour and 40 minutes). We also return you to the train station later on after the tour, so you are back in London for the evening.
The unique aspect of the Secret Cottage Tour is that we not only take you to all the best places in the north Cotswolds but we also invite you into our 400-year old home – The Secret Cottage. Guests are given a tour of our special home and we provide delicious food throughout the day, including a hot drink and pastry in the morning, a tasty homemade buffet lunch and a special traditional Cotswold cream tea in the afternoon. We are passionate about our tours and want to make sure we give guests the ultimate experience on their day tour. We will take you to hidden villages, charming market towns and plenty of historical places of interest.

Secret Cottage Tour
What a fabulous day we had on the secret cottage tour, I was a bit apprehensive as I had booked if for my party of six ladies. There was no need, it was the highlight of our week in the Cotswolds. Our driver Andy was lovely and friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, he made us all feel very relaxed straight away. The car was very comfortable. We saw so much that we would not have found on our own. Becky’s cottage is divine, how wonderful to be invited into someone’s home. What a lovely family to share such a beautiful home with the public. We all said how lovely it was to actually see inside one of these beautiful cottages that we always look at from the outside. Polly was very welcoming and the food was gorgeous! We all ate so much but it was so good you just couldn’t help yourself. Next time I come I will be trying the mystery tour. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
Perfect Way to See the Cotswolds!
A convenient, relaxing, informative way to see the Cotswolds! We met wonderful people, learned about the history of the area, and devoured delicious food and lots of it all while enjoying the beautiful scenery. Thank you to our guides and hosts for making us feel so welcome!
This was an ideal way to see a part of the Cotswolds. Ian manouvered through the narrow lanes and roads and provided lots of interesting information on the way. The cottage and garden were beautiful; Polly’s baking was fantastic! Our trip from London was delayed due to construction on the railroad, but Becky met us at the station when we finally arrived and made everything OK! A wonderful day. Thank you.
Amazing Food and Amazing Cottages
Our guides, Steve and Andy were very knowledgeable about the area. We saw more in one day than we ever could have done on our own. Then there were the 3 glorious meals we had in a thatched cottage served by Polly. OMG – carb overload but it was delicious. This was a very enjoyable tour!
MUST DO Day Trip from London
This was the highlight of our week long vacation in London. It was so refreshing, and easy, to get out of London for the day and take the train ride up to The Cotswolds. The Secret Cottage tour was the absolute BEST way to see everything The Cotswolds has to offer. Our tour guide, Andy, knew everything there is to know about the area. I’ve saved the best part for last…THE FOOD!!! Polly prepared the most wonderful English Tea for us. A homemade Victorian cake that was out of this world was the perfect ending to the meal she provided for us. Everyone was so gracious and accommodating and if we’re ever wealthy enough to be able to travel back and forth we would love to own a home in one of the gorgeous villages in The Cotswolds. Talk about off the beaten path…it’s a lifelong oasis. This tour is worth every penny and then some. MUST DO!!!!
