Overview

During your tour of hidden villages, you’re invited inside our Private Thatched Home for coffee and pastries, a buffet lunch and in the afternoon a traditional English cream Tea. With our invaluable knowledge, you are treated ‘as if you’re a local’ during the 6 hour guided tour of picturesque villages that are inaccessible to public transport. You can take the tour on your own, as a couple, or a group, with a maximum of 7 seats. Every day throughout the year from Moreton-in-Marsh railway station. Great daytrip from LONDON-Paddington.
