Cycle quiet country roads while visiting some of the best villages the north Cotswolds has to offer while based in the beautiful and historic villages of Broadway and Bourton-on-the-Water. The Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that straddles 6 counties, an area of rolling hills on a bedrock of Jurassic limestone. The area was once renowned for its wool production, reminders of which you can still see today in the fine houses and 'wool' churches, built in the 15th and 16th Centuries by the local wool merchants.

This twin-centre cycling holiday allows you to visit some of the best of the north Cotswolds villages from your bases in the beautiful and historic villages of Broadway and Bourton-on-the-Water. Cycling on quiet country roads you'll head to some of the best-known towns and villages of the area, as well as getting the chance to visit a wide range of sites and attractions, from Broadway Tower, the brainchild of Capability Brown to Sudeley Castle, last resting place of Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth wife.

The cycling mainly follows quiet country roads and tarmac roads. The terrain is mainly flat with some gentle, downhill cycling. This is a self-guided trip for those who prefer to cycle independently, but with the tour operator's assistance to take out the stress of the logistics and planning. They arrange your accommodation, provide you with a map and route notes so that you can cycle at your own pace, while your bags are transported from one hotel to the next. Your bikes will be delivered to the start hotel, all set up relevant to your height and ready to go. A local agent will be on call throughout the trip should you need.

Self-guided cycling holidays are a perfect option for families as they offer the freedom for you to take your holiday at your own pace. You can stop as and when you want and need, at the cafes and restaurants that suit your family and the sites that interest you. The tour operator suggests that 12yrs is the minimum age for this trip, but as it is self-guided and you will be leading your own family they will ultimately leave this decision up to you. Please check the itinerary page for information about daily distances.
