Begin your day with some culture & history, the tour will take you through the streets of Oxford abundant with University buildings and famous architecture that inspired artists and poets through the ages.
As you ride through the leafy suburbs of the residential part of the city you are heading towards the atmospheric Cherwell Boathouse and riverside restaurant. Here you will enjoy a romantic boat ride along the Thames and experience parts of the University and Town only accessible from the River. There is exquisite riverside dining available at the boathouse restaurant and even a bottle of champagne for the boat if your heart so desires.
We leave the city along one of the tranquil waterways and ambles through villages outside of the city, some of which date back to Saxon times. An afternoon drink or snack can be enjoyed at one of our carefully selected country Inns or whilst visiting the remains of a 1st century Roman Villa.
The final part of the tour takes you through unblemished countryside towards the charming English village of Minster Lovell, where you will find your final destination The Old Swan and Minster Mill. “At the heart of the Old Minster village and with a history going back almost 600 years, The Old Swan and Minster Mill couldn’t be more quintessentially English. The perfect spot to escape the city and explore the Cotswolds. Or just relax, spa and dine”.
Here at the Old Swan & Minster Mill you will enjoy a nights luxurious dinner & accommodation. “The Old Swan and Minster Mill captures the charm of bygone years, throw in a good measure of modern convenience, add to it the laid-back atmosphere of the gastro-pub inspired dining room and log-fired bar and you’ll feel like there’s no place like it. The setting couldn’t be more romantic if it tried”
