Day 1 After being picked up from your door, we make our way across country to our hotel on the outskirts of Gloucester to be greeted with tea and biscuits.

Day 2 We take the old Bath Road down through the countryside, past Stroud and on to Westonbirt Arboretum. Home to 2,500 different species from the far corners of the globe, and a remarkable Tree Top Walkway, Westonbirt is a delight at any time of year. We then have some free time in Tetbury before visiting Chavenage House, a stunning 16th-century Cotswold-stone manor house which was ‘Trenwith’ in BBC’s Poldark.

Day 3 A morning in Gloucester where you might like to look around the magnificent cathedral. This afternoon we head for the impressive Victorian Docks and the National Waterways Museum, before enjoying a cruise on the Sharpness Canal.

Day 4 We follow the path of the River Severn to the historic town of Chepstow, before continuing north along the beautiful Wye Valley. We have some time in Monmouth for lunch before a cruise on the River Wye at Symonds Yat.

Day 5 Departing after breakfast, we travel south east with a stop in Winchester before returning to the local area to meet our taxis
