Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold, Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswolds, England

At nearly 800ft, Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns, located on the Roman Fosse Way and at the point where several roads meet, hence an important trading centre. It has a long history, it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill, and had a special importance in the English Civil War, the last battle was fought close by in Donnington back in 1646. St Edward’s Church, was used as a prison for the defeated Royalist troops, as it was the only lockable building in the town. Some of the damage sustained at this time can still be seen today.

The Market Square is large and impressive and testifies to the town’s former importance. It is surrounded by town houses, independent shops, antique centres, cosy cafes and inns all built in the mellow local stone, and it has been the focus of town life over many centuries, with the medieval market stocks at one end, the ancient market cross at the other and the impressive St Edwards Hall standing in the centre.

Duration: 1 hour

Lower Slaughter - the slightly macabre name comes from the Old English for 'muddy place' - are linked by the tiny River Eye, a tributary to the River Windrush.

A wander alongside the stream in Lower Slaughter seems like a privilege - people actually live here! Lower Slaughter Mill & café is well worth a visit - a mill was recorded her in the Doomsday Book of 1086.

Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a 20 min drive from Bourton-on-the-Water. It’s easy to see why William Morris called Bibury ‘The most beautiful village in England’ – wonderful stone buildings strung out along the banks of the River Coln.

Arlington Row, owned by the National Trust, is one of England’s most iconic and photographed sites – it even appears on the inside cover of UK passports! Originally built in the 14th century as a monastic wool store, it was converted in the 17th century into a row of weavers’ cottages. The cottages are now lived in by National Trust tenants, with no public access to the cottages or gardens, although one of them can be rented out as a holiday cottage.

This is the perfect experience if you're looking to get away from the other generic touristy Cotswolds tours. Cuma was very kind and accommodating and took us to many locations that would have been difficult to get to on our own or with a larger tour based on what we were interested in. He also has a great eye for secret photo-worthy spots. He was very patient with our group when we wanted to linger a bit longer at certain places! Lunch was at a great local spot that did not feel touristy at all. He was communicative and made sure we got everything that we could out of the tour, up until the very end!
