Two nights in the Cotswolds Two nights in the Cotswolds

Characterised by rolling hills, ancient woodland and sleepy villages of honey-coloured cottages, the Cotswolds is pretty enough to charm even those who are lucky enough to live there. Stretching for 100 miles across the five counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire, this is the England of picture books. A tapestry of farmland is divided by 4,000 miles of historic Cotswold stone walls and covered with a scattering of pretty market towns, stately homes and castles.

* Discover the Cotswolds with a local farmer * Discover the Cotswolds with a local farmer

Robin Dale, farmer and tour guide, is a bit of a local legend. On this unique tour, you will join Robin on his farm, home to his family for 80 years. You will have the chance to explore the ‘lay of the land’ and discover all the secrets of farming in the Cotswolds.

You will have exclusive access to his private museum, where a range of pictures, fossils and historic farm machinery will be explained to you by your host. The Cotswolds are famous for their dry stone walls and Robin has built one specially for you. He will share the ancient craft with you and even give you the opportunity to place some stones yourselves. Not many tours offer you the chance to take part in creating Cotswold history. Once your work is done, Robin will take you on a tour of the local area, where he will share his deep knowledge of the English countryside. No VIP tour would be complete without a private visit to an English manor house, so to end the day you will be taken on an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ tour of a Georgian mansion, one of the finest in the Cotswolds. If it’s gardens you like the manor’s gardens are sublime and after your tour, we can also organise a private lunch or afternoon tea in the gardens or in the grand dining room. Once you have finished, Robin will be waiting to transfer you back to your hotel or do a bit more touring.

Two nights in the Scottish Highlands Two nights in the Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands is a sublime landscape of lochs, stark mountains, forest and a winding coastline dotted with empty beaches and remote fishing villages. For many, the Highlands is the most beautiful region of the British Isles.

It is a wild place with the lowest population density in Europe, but the Highlanders you’ll encounter here are proud, warm and welcoming, with a strong, independent heritage that stretches back centuries.

More than just whisky, fairy tale castles and sprawling stalking estates - though it certainly has those in spades - it is where the modern face of Scotland can be seen in juxtaposition with long held tradition. Re-emerging wildlife, endless opportunity for adventure and incredible local produce make the Highlands a fine destination to explore.

Jacobite steam train Jacobite steam train

Enjoy a ride on the Jacobite steam train, made famous as the Hogwart’s Express in the Harry Potter movies. The train is one of the best ways to view the stunning scenery of the West Coast from the comfort of the first class carriage. Sit back in first class and watch the beautiful landscapes flash by. You’ll cross the Glenfinnan Viaduct before reaching Mallaig, whereupon you’ll board a local ferry service for your crossing to the Isle of Skye.

Isle of Skye Isle of Skye

Skye’s rugged landscapes and dramatic mountain scenery are unrivalled among the islands of the West Coast. There are a only few roads crossing the island and its isolated position has ensured it retains a strong and proud Gaelic identity. There is a thriving arts and crafts tradition on the island and photographers from far and wide are attracted not only for the peaks and valleys but for the extraordinary abundance of wildlife, both on dry land and in the sea, that Skye is famous for.
