Cotswolds, The Blossom Trail & Malvern Hills


The Three Counties of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, & Herefordshire are a picture in the springtime when the fruit trees come into blossom, the daffodils are out and, in theory at least, the area is bathed in warm sunshine! Based at a historic in the centre of Worcester, we make the most of this lovely time of year.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1
A morning departure from West Wales, and with suitable stops en-route, we travel to Worcester, arriving early afternoon. Settle into your rooms before the evening meal.

Day 2
Today, we shall take the Vale of Evesham Trail via the pretty plum town of Pershore, Evesham, The Lenches, Harvington, Offenham, Wichamford to Broadway, one of the gems of the Cotswolds. There are several roadside fruit & vegetable stalls along the route through other “chocolate box” Cotswolds Villages – Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. Return to Toddington for a ride on the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Steam Railway to Cheltenham Racecourse, and return to the hotel.

Day 3
Departing after breakfast, we shall be meandering through the Three Counties, stopping in delightful and historic towns. Travel via Malvern, a Victorian town overlooked by the beautiful Malvern Hills, where the pure Malvern Water runs from many spouts around the hills. Continue to the pretty town of Upton-on-Severn, where you board the largest boat on the River Severn, and sail to the riverside town of Tewkesbury with its 12th Century Abbey. Journey onward to Ledbury, with its ancient market hall and lovely Church Lane, and on to historic Hereford, before returning to Worcester.

Day 4
Spend the morning in the historic city of Worcester. The City’s main shopping streets and the Cathedral are within walking distance of the hotel. After lunch, we depart Worcester and return to West Wales in the evening.
