I took the Cotswolds Highlights tour where in we travel to locations off the beaten track. to hillside villages offering wonderful views with beautiful cottages. We started the morning visiting Broadway Tower, the smallest castle in the Cotswolds with the best view in the region (entry:4.5GBP)

Just outside the broadway tower is a cafe with excellent views of the rolling meadows amongst the cover of clouds for you to enjoy a quick coffee. This tour is a great balance between remote peaceful villages & stunning market towns.

Set in a remote hillside location, this wonderful village of Snowshill is a breath-taking introduction to a Cotswolds village. Used as a filming location for Bridget Jones Diary, it will capture your heart.
