Take a Cotswolds Journey from Cheltenham
Perhaps you are planning your holiday & have decided to stay in Cheltenham. Originally a Spa Town it was won on a game of cards, over gentleman trying to decide where the town would be, either in Cheltenham or Prestbury. Cheltenham is located on the very edge of the Severn Plain. George III made the town famous when he visited for five weeks in 1788 to ‘take the waters’. It has some of the finest Regency buildings in the country, these are grouped along terraces, crescents, gardens & parks. There is an annual Festival of Music, also a Festival or Literature & of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup which is held on the fine racecourse to the north of the town. It is also the home of the Cheltenham Ladies College. If you see girls dressed in green, walking in pairs or threes along the streets then you can be sure they are being educated at this, the most elitist of colleges. Just outside Cheltenham is Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds at 1,083ft, if you climb to the top you will be afforded the finest views of the Welsh Mountains, The Malvern Hills. Once you have explored the shops you may want to step out into the countryside. You can reach our pick up point in the north Cotswolds, by catching a bus from Cheltenham.
