We were in the UK for 17 days earlier this month. We visited the Cotswold's for 3 days. We took a tour with Becky from Secret Garden Tours. It was the best thing we did in the whole trip. Becky picks you up with her seven passenger van at the train station in Moreton- in - March. We visited one of the sites used in the filming of Wolf Hall, then on to her private home, a 400 year old thatched cottage. We had coffee at her home, then went off to visit villages that are inaccessible to public transport. She took us back to her home where Phil her friend had laid out a beautiful lunch. We were lucky, we were the only two booked that day so we had her all to ourselves. We visited villages we couldn't find on the maps, no other tourists walking around with cameras. Becky is delightful, she has lived in the area for twenty five years so full of local knowledge, and has a great sense of humor. We felt like we had known her for years. You can find her at www.secretcottage.co.uk. This would be a great day trip from London, you would take the train from Paddington station straight to Moreton-in-March where she would pick you up. We ended the day back at her cottage for English cream tea. We spent six hours with her, it was worth every penny.
