Electric bike tours of the country lanes of the Cotswolds

Bike tours of the Cotswolds

You are on vacation, so there are a couple of things we don’t want you worrying about; getting lost and wasting your time, it is precious. The use of a local guide and electric bikes for the day works brilliantly, as long as you can ride a bike, of course.

Using one of our driver-guides for touring the Cotswolds is excellent. But, we would be the first to admit, to get genuinely off-the-tourist-trail, using an electric bike with a local guide gets you down the most narrow of lanes and the odd short cut across a field. Firstly, it is fun, and secondly, you see places that you cannot see in a car.  

We will tailor your electric bike day (or two) to match your interests, but we will make suggestions to utilise the bikes and enhance your day. Please don’t worry about the hills. The e-bikes will eat hills while you enjoy the English countryside.

Here a few Electric Bike Tour of the Cotswolds ideas.

Broadway to Hidcote Manor Gardens
Head up to the famous Broadway tower and enjoy the spectacular views. Head down into the villages of Chipping Campden for tea and cake. You may wish to wander around the shops, before heading to Hidcote Manor Gardens. The gardens are much loved and admired. Stroll through the series of gardens rooms and stop for lunch in the tea rooms. Return to Broadway. 

Broadway to Snowshill
Cycle along country lanes and through hamlets with hatched cottages and pretty gardens. Stop at Snowhill Manor. The home of eccentric Charles Wade, and see his bizarre collections of curious items. Admire the craftsmanship of the house and again, the lovely views from the gardens.  Stop at a local pub for lunch. Head to the nearby Jacobean mansion of Stanway. The gardens feature a canal with a single-jet fountain that reaches 300 ft tall. Stop at a local pub en-route back for a quick pint or cup of coffee. 

Broadway to Sudeley Castle
Head up into the hills and back down into the valleys to Sudeley Castle, once the home of Katherine Parr, King Henry VIII’s six and final wife, who outlived the King.  Enjoy the fabulous gardens, castle rooms and the delightful church of St Mary’s, housing the tomb of Queen Katherine. 

Picnic ideas; When you have been cycling, you may prefer a picnic lunch. We can make all the arrangements. It could be a casual style picnic or something more elaborate. We will have various ideas to help you make the right decisions.
