Discover the wondrous magic of the Cotswolds on this 2 day weekend cycling adventure

On this escape, our local guides will convince you that the Cotswolds is best explored on two wheels! We'll visit the beautiful market town of Bourton-on-the-Water, historic Northleach and the tiny village of Lower Slaughter, home to 'the most romantic street in Britain'. Add to that a lazy Sunday afternoon stroll along the Cotswold Way (no Cotswolds visit would be complete without it), Sunday morning Yin Yoga in our campsite and delicious food at some of our favourite Cotswoldian country pubs.

If you're looking for a weekend of adventure and exploration and a true escape for body and mind, then this is for you.
