Coddling Cotswolds Bike Tour

Duration: 4-5 Days


PLACES VISITED: Cotswolds, Windrush and Coln 


Minimum route distance 76 miles (124 km)

Experience the finest hospitality and warmest welcome on the edge of the Cotswolds area of natural beauty. This single centre, short break holiday combines luxurious accommodation with the empowerment provided by our top-quality E-bikes to allow you to explore and discover the Cotswolds in the utmost comfort. Ride between some of the country’s most picturesque villages, stop for pub lunches and picnics on the banks of the Windrush and Coln and discover for yourself why the Cotswolds are England’s premier holiday destination. 


Check in to your room, then take some time to explore the surroundings of your stunning hotel. Perhaps indulge in a spa treatment before dinner in one of the on-site dining options.

Our destination mangers will call by after breakfast to handover our excellent E-bikes and talk you through the details of your cycling tour. After this, it is time to get in the saddle and set off to explore the glorious countryside and impossibly quaint villages that this part of England is famed for. Our first recommended ride takes you to some of the region’s most famous villages. Start the ride by heading north to Burford, on the banks of the River Windrush. You will follow the river to begin with, hopping from village to village, before approaching Bourton on the Water and then Lower Slaughter. These two villages are arguably the two finest examples of what makes the Cotswolds just so special and we highly recommend locking up your bikes for a while to explore and enjoy them. When it’s time to head back, you’ll follow a route through yet more scenic villages and countryside all the way to the hotel. 

Approx. riding time: 3.5 hours

For those staying with us for three nights, we have another great ride for you to enjoy today. Saddle up and cruise out of Barnsley, heading eastwards along small country roads through the verdant landscape until you reach the banks of the River Coln. Follow the river as it twists through a number of gorgeous villages, including Coln St Aldwyns and Bibury where you’ll find authentic Cotswolds charm in abundance. The route then takes you south to the Roman market town of Cirencester, home to a host of interesting historical sites and a selection of cafes, restaurants and shops for you to enjoy whilst taking a break. The last leg of the ride takes you back to hotel

Approx. riding time: 3.5 hours
