Things to do/places to visit for Adults
Whether you have booked a romantic stay with a loved one or planned a break with a bunch of friends, we hope you will make the most of your stay in the Cotswolds. We recommend making the most of the area by exploring the beautiful warm, honey-coloured Cotswold stone villages and towns and trying out some of the wonderful pubs and award-winning eateries that the area has to offer.
Maybe you want to spend time in the beautiful countryside following the Cotswold Way, Diamond Way, Heart of England and other footpaths. Perhaps you hope to visit National Trust properties like Hidcote Gardens, Snowshill Manor and others. Don’t forget we also have Stratford-Upon-Avon and the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre and William Shakespeare’s house just 20 minutes away.
However, if you are looking for something a bit different and want to have fun and learn some new skills, perhaps you would be interested in the following:
The little Soap School at the Little Soap Company, Broadway, Worcs.
Described as “a luxurious hands-on course” you can learn to make bespoke hand-made, eco-friendly organic soaps in their Broadway workshop. You can book a one-day workshop for yourself or a small group and spend the day playing with natural ingredients to make your own bespoke cold-pressed creation to take home with you.

The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers in the Cotswolds - Courses
These classes will include seasonal flower workshops in flower design, covering all sorts of topics such as hand tied bouquets, floral headdresses, Christmas wreaths, and flowers for the home. The students of such workshops will not only walk away with gorgeous flowers but a feeling of achievement and confidence in their new skills and perhaps even inspiration to continue working with flowers for their pleasure. https://www.academyofflowers.com
Guided Walks across the Cotswolds
Cotswold Voluntary Wardens organise a year-round programme of walks that take place across the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The walks vary in distance and difficulty and offer an interesting and often entertaining way of discovering more about our countryside and landscape.
Unless otherwise indicated, all walks by the Voluntary Wardens are free of charge however donations are very much appreciated and are usually collected at the end of the walk. No need to book in advance, just turn up (in appropriate footwear) and enjoy!
