The Cotswolds is a region best explored in an unhurried fashion over a few relaxing days.  At Kooky Cotswold Tours we will arrange the whole Cotswold Experience for you including transport, accommodation, itinerary, entertainment and much more. 

kooky tours

Kooky Cotswold Tours is owned and operated by Lee & Emma, two travel nuts who after many years travelling the globe returned to the Cotswolds, which is where they call home.  We combined our love of travel with the beauty of the Cotswolds, threw in our way of touring based on our own experiences and the result is Kooky Cotswold Tours!

At Kooky Cotswold Tours we ensure you see everything the Cotswolds is renowned for – plus a little bit of what you never knew existed.  Most visitors expect to see honey coloured villages and grandiose manors surrounded by beautiful countryside, and these are plenty. But there is so much more to be seen if you venture a little deeper. You’ll be charmed by what we’ll find.

Let us take you down hidden lanes and back roads in your own chauffeur driven luxury transport to places where large buses and tour groups can’t go! We use a brand new Volkswagen Transporter – a luxury eight seater with plenty of luggage space. The vehicle is air conditioned and the elevated seating position means you get better viewing above those hedgerows!

We will arrange stays in your preferred choice of accommodation – from small bed and breakfast establishments, to authentic farmhouse stays to luxury five star hotels. Your overnight stays are carefully chosen to give you the opportunity to make the most of long summer nights in the Cotswolds – enjoy an al fresco Shakespeare performance in a wooded glade or sample the delights of a village pub bbq.

Staying for a few days also increases your chances of seeing fauna, dusk and dawn being the best times to witness some unique local wildlife. We can also recommend the best places to eat, drink or take in a show or festival.

We design flexible and relaxed itineraries to suit you. An unforgettable drive along the Romantic Road, a family tour with something for everyone, fact finding trips for historical enthusiasts – whatever the reason for your tour, we aim to please.

We create relaxed and unhurried tours for up to eight people to suit any taste and are not restricted to the Cotswolds. We can pick you up and drop you off from any location at the beginning and end of your time with us. Tours can last as long as you wish.

Totally One-Off Experience in the Cotswolds

Becky the tour guide drives a minibus to outstanding hidden villages that are inaccessible by public transport. The unspoilt villages that she has carefully selected are made up of thatched cottages, clipped lawns and dusty lanes, which perfectly illustrate what life was like in the 16th century. Having lived in the area for twenty five years, her local knowledge is invaluable to visitors.

What gave Becky the idea for starting the tour was that every tourist yearns to see inside these cottages and to see how the English conduct their daily lives. . Suddenly she thought....“I live in a pretty thatched cottage and I’d love to show people what I experience every day”.

Becky’s home is called ‘Secret Cottage’ and is quintessentially perfect for guests to explore and experience how the English live in the Cotswolds. Inside everything is old and quaint, there are three inglenook fireplaces which are open log fires used to heat the cottage, the winding stairs and floors are made from original elm planks and the heavily beamed listed cottage is nearly 500 years old!

Cotswold places to tour

During the tour of villages, Becky periodically returns to Secret Cottage to serve morning coffee and pastries, a buffet lunch and in the afternoon you can see the scones being baked in the Aga, which are essential for the traditional English Cotswold cream tea.

The 6 hour tour costs £85 per person and includes food & drink served inside our 16th century cottage

Tour Pictures

Go Cotswolds is owned and operated by Tom Benjamin.

He has a passion for travel and over the last 10 years has spent large chunks of time ambling around this awesome planet of ours.

He has done all sorts: played cricket in Australia, hitch-hiked through Botswana, clambered over the Andes, drunk Polish nut vodka… but he has always come back to his home here on the edge of the Cotswolds. Why? Because it’s stunningly awesome.

Now he wants to show you around this area that he knows and loves – not just the places you see pictured in the guidebooks, but also those off-the-beaten-track places he has fallen in love over the years.
