    3 Days: Essential Cotswolds

    Brimming with history, the Cotswolds’s rolling hills are home to myriad monuments, gardens and castles, most of which are best explored via private guide. The region is quintessentially British and cozy–it’s the perfect place to relax with a cup of tea. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Lounge at Soho Farmhouse, Cotswolds, England

      Day 1: Castles and Walking

      En route from London, stop at Windsor Castle, one of the largest and oldest inhabited castles in the world. After your guided tour, stop at an Indagare-recommended local pub for lunch. Once checked into your Cotswolds hotel, go for a walk around the grounds and surrounding area, taking note of the best antiques stores, pubs and charming villages to return to. Have dinner at a retrofitted, contemporary gastropub.

      This morning, meet your driver for the trip to Oxford and Blenheim Palace. Indagare can arrange a private tour of the complex, which was a gift from Queen Anne to John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough, before it opens to the public. After the tour, head into Oxford for lunch in the historic college town, followed by a guided tour of the campus, including Christ Church College.

      Day 3: Gardens and Farms

      Highgrove Gardens, Prince Charles’s passion project, is located just outside town and can be visited from April through October. The nearby village of Tetbury is worth a visit. Park and meander the high streets, stopping into antique stores, sweets shops, tea rooms and the official Highgrove boutique. Die-hard foodies should visit to Daylesford, home to a fabulous organic shop, café, wood-oven pizzeria and Farm Cookery School.

Indagare's Amelia Osborne Scott
"A place of pheasant-filled fields, Champagne picnics and chubby Labradors lazing by fireplaces, the Cotswolds is England at its best. But the most authentic way to experience the region is to live like a local."
