THE COTSWOLD ADVENTURE
Coronavirus Peace of Mind
Sunday 23rd May 2021
Your safety and wellbeing are our utmost priority and we would like to reassure you that we are continuously monitoring all government advice and regulations. In the coming weeks, we understand that you may feel anxious to travel after the recent announcements regarding social gatherings in groups of no more than six people. We can confirm that this announcement does not affect transport, and therefore day excursions and tours can go ahead as planned.
We have taken many measures to safeguard your event and we have worked closely with our coach and venue partners to ensure all health and safety guidelines are met. We want to ensure you that you can travel with complete peace of mind on your chosen event with Travallen Travel & Events
THIS EVENT WILL BE SOCIALLY DISTANCED AND A FACE COVERING WILL BE REQUIRED ON THE COACH
So, join us if you will, for our very first and interesting day excursion this year. The Cotswold Drive visits 3 locations where you’ll be able to wander and take refreshment of your choice. Bibury is our first location – a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from “The Capital of the Cotswolds”, Cirencester. Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as “the most beautiful village in England.
There’s no doubt that Bibury is featured on many lists of most beautiful Cotswold villages. And the cottages of Arlington Row are often referred to as the most photographed and beautiful cottages in the country. Another refreshment stop takes us to Morton in Marsh.
It has welcomed travellers since Roman times, thanks to its position either side of the Fosse Way and, much later, as a staging post on the London to Worcester coach road, hence the proliferation of historic inns in the town. Itself – a charming and busy little town, Cotswold stone townhouses, many of them dating to Jacobean and Georgian times, provide an elegant backdrop to the daily hustle and bustle. Burford’s famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its three-arched medieval bridge and its impressive church, both sides of the street flanked by an unbroken line of ancient houses and shops.
This is our final ‘cuppa’ stop that has little has changed over the centuries. Burford is popular, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping, especially antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. A reunion with your fellow travellers!
