So as it rained and poured in Devon we were lucky enough to have dry, warm weather up North!   We stayed at The Queen Hotel Chester which is only a 10 min walk from the city centre and is a firm favourite of ours as never fails to impress with it's quirky decor (a full size red phone box in the hotel lobby, along with what can only be described as a giant's chair sat along side it!!) great food and of course not forgetting the hotel porter, Iwan, who welcomes everyone with a friendly smile and gave our group a talk about the history of the hotel as he has been employed there for 15 years, so we know him well!   We travelled to Wales on one of the days for a relaxing train ride, followed by a 2 hour serene canal cruise taking us over Llangollen aqueduct, which was extremely high!   And of course the highlight of the trip was our guided tour of the BBC where we got to experience how some of our favourite TV show's are filmed.  I am now firmly back in the office for a few weeks where I have started to work on our 2020 brochure which comes out in January with lots of new destinations for Lisa & myself to visit!           Helen

Tour Managers Blog - The Cotswolds

Yesterday I returned from 5 lovely days in the Cotswolds....

This holiday had a really varied itinerary with something to suit everyone.

Our first full day in the Cotswolds found us enjoying a guided tour of the Mini Factory. This experience was both interesting and entertaining.

On day two we had a tour around Chavenage House, this is the filming venue for the popular TV series Poldark. We were shown around the house by the owner, Caroline. This is by far one of the most entertaining house visits ever. With stories of family life & filming faux pas everyone chuckled from start to finish.

Our last full day in the Cotswolds we visited Adam Hensons farm, unfortunately Adam wasn't around we were given a lovely welcome by all the friendly workers, who obviously love their work. In between all the visits we managed to find some time to explore Burford, Tetbury & Bourton On The Water. And even found time for a swim in the hotel pool.

I now need to touch base back here in the office and see what I've missed! Bye for now Lisa.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I find it hard to put into words how amazing this magical show was! Thursford Spectacular is by far one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen or am I likely to see.

I often get asked which is my favourite holiday we've run. Well this one will definitley feature in my top 3!

I'm now feeling very festive! Best wishes Lisa.
