Say Hello to Winter in the Cotswolds

Say Hello to Winter in the Cotswolds

From whizzing around English heritage sites on e-bikes to adrenaline pumping husky rides, the Cotswolds are full of hidden gems making it the perfect place to hibernate this winter.

So wrap up warm and get ready to escape the hustle bustle with a quintessential English countryside break in the Cotswolds…oh with a twist of course.

Make Time for Canines

You don’t have to travel to Alaska to experience the thrills of husky trekking.

Get ready for an adrenaline rush like no other as you explore the countryside by husky and learn the art of mushing. Not for the faint hearted, these pooches might look adorable, but they pack some pace.

Artic Quest, based in Tewksbury, offer experiences for solo riders, couples and larger groups, making it a definite bucket list activity for thrill seekers this winter.

Hit the Highstreets

We’re not talking Roses, Quality Street or Heroes. We’re talking proper chocolate boxes.

We’re surrounded by beautiful villages lined with independent boutique shops. So pop to Broadway, Chipping Campden or Stow-on-the-Wold for a mooch and some much needed winter retail therapy.

 Power to the Tower

Brush off the cobwebs and take a walk to the frosty folly that is Broadway Tower. On a clear day you’ll see for miles at the top (over 16 counties in fact).

Why not swap your hilly hike for an e-bike, available to hire from Tower Barn at Broadway Tower? After all, whizzing around on two wheels is a fun and unique way to cover the 50-acre estate…oh and it gets you to the café for a hazelnut hot chocolate a lot quicker too.

Become the Queen (or King) of Scent

For a fragrance filled getaway venture to Bourton-on-the-Water and spend a day in the lab creating your own unique signature scent at The Cotswold Perfumery.

The owner, John, is one of only six independent perfumers in the UK, and his fragrances are worn by perfume enthusiasts around the world – including Queen Lizzie herself.

Take Ginuary Literally…

Pop over and see our very good friends at Cotswolds Distillery to celebrate Ginuary with a tour and tasting.

And if gin isn’t quite your… cup of G&T…you can always try their whisky blending or cocktail masterclasses (or both we won’t tell).
