Spanning 800 square miles (or 1287.48 kilometers for our European friends), the Cotswolds is the quintessential English paradise that is known for its cozy cottages and rural villages. Yearly, 20 million people visit the region to take in the sites of this lovely area. The best way to do so is by bike. This way you can tour the idyllic, dreamy villages and unspoiled countryside at your own pace. If you need more convincing, read on for our top five reasons why everyone should visit the Cotswolds. • The breathtaking countryside - Rolling hills, wild meadows and meandering streams are all a part of the Cotswolds. Everywhere you turn you will witness scenes that are right out of a painting. The difference is that you will be a part of these awe-inspiring scenes. Add to this the leisurely pace at which you can take in such sites and you will have the perfect European cycling vacation. • The Cotswolds Way National Trail - This gorgeous 102 mile long path runs past several historic sites including the Neolithic burial chamber at Belas Knap and Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe. Moreover, the path also winds through several quaint villages and rustic hamlets. This will allow you to soak up the Cotswolds experience in a close and personal way by foot or on bike. • Its royal connections - The Cotswolds is not just a pastoral area of transcendent beauty, it is also the home to Prince of Wales’s Highgrove Estate, which is open to the public, and Corsham Court. Corsham court is known for its fine art collection and is also open to visitors. • Romantic castles: Steeped in centuries of history, the Cotswolds boasts several majestic castles and palaces that are like something out of Game of Thrones. These castles and palaces include Blenheim Palace, Sudeley Castle, Kenilworth Castle, Thornbury Castle and Berkeley Castle. Visitors here can take a trip back in time and see sites such as Elizabethan gardens, 15th-century churches, etc. • The nexus to other fine cities: The Cotswolds is the gateway to some of England’s most cultured small towns including Cheltenham in the west, Elgar’s Worcester in the north and the university city of Oxford in the east. Thus, you can take in the sights of these historic cities on your bike tour. Finally, the Cotswolds is only one destination you can visit on one of our bike tour vacations. You can also arrange for tours of North America as well. We provide one of the best and most enjoyable best biking vacations in the business and cannot wait for you to experience these wonderful sites with us this spring.
