Cotswolds & Blossom Trail - Rail & Sail A picture in the springtime

The three counties of Worcestershire, Gloucester & Herefordshire are a picture in the springtime when the fruit trees come into blossom and the daffodils are out. This tour is based in a historic hotel in the centre of Worcester, a beautiful Cathedral city set on the banks of the River Severn, in the heart of England. Close to the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds it is packed with heritage and its vibrant compact centre combines quintessential English charm with modern convenience. This lovely springtime break also includes a steam train ride and river cruise.

  • Hotel for 3 nights with breakfast & dinner

  • Guided Walk - Worcester

  • Guided Tour of Blossom Trail

  • Steam Railway Journey

  • River Avon Boat Trip


The Fownes Hotel, originally a Victorian Glove Factory, encapsulates olde world charm with modern convenience. The Courtyard or Canal Side provides a tranquil haven in which to relax. The 61 elegant bedrooms offer tea and coffee making facilities, skirt/trouser press, hairdryer and range of toiletries.


Day 1 - From your chosen joining point your feeder vehicle will take you to your designated interchange point where your holiday begins. After joining your holiday coach, it's onward to your historic hotel in Worcester stopping en-route for refreshments. Arriving at the hotel around mid- afternoon and a local guide awaits to give you an introduction to the area with a short guided walk. Dinner, bed & breakfast included.

Day 2 & 3 - At leisure in Worcester with TWO included excursions.

Trains, Boats & Blossom Trail
Our first stop will be Toddington where we take the train journey on the Gloucester & Warwickshire Steam Railway to Cheltenham. We have some free time in this beautiful city before we meet our local guide in Evesham for a 2 hour guided coach tour of the Blossom Trail. We start at the plum town of Pershore, before continuing through Fladbury & The Lenches. We return to Evesham to enjoy a boat trip on the River Avon before returning to our hotel.

Three Counties Tour
Meandering through some delightful historic towns with stops in Tewkesbury, with its ancient Abbey and the pretty towns of Upton-On-Seven and Ledbury, famous for its ancient market hall. Continuing onto Hereford with free time. A stop in Victorian Malvern overlooked by the beautiful Malvern Hills en route back to Worcester is a must.
