Anyone who has ever visited the rolling hills of the Cotswolds will understand why they inspire such creativity in composers such as Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams, not to mention more modern classics such as the Harry Potter films, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Downton Abbey.
Driving through the Cotswold is a truly invigorating experience, and the chance to do so in a car that epitomises classic engineering and the elegance that typifies the golden age of motoring. From an Austin Healey or a Rolls Royce to a classic Mini or Ford Capri, the cars on offer are meticulously maintained and provide the chance to enjoy a world of classic motoring against a backdrop of beautiful scenery.
Guests will be welcomed on arrival and offered a cup of tea or coffee to prepare them for the experience ahead. Drivers will then be given a short briefing to introduce them to the controls of the car they will be driving and a map or a sat nav which will help them follow the specially chosen route which will enable them to see some of the most spectacular scenery around. Drivers may be able to take a passenger to share the experience with them as they cruise through the countryside enjoying the amazing views, please check at the time of booking.
