It's laugh-a-minute time when not-so-tiny-Tim's your driver for a tour of the Cotswolds - or, indeed, just about anywhere in this sceptred isle. Tim's sheep farming background and intimate knowledge of the area makes for a cracking cocktail of tales. Some of them might even be true. Excellent value for money.

My family spent three days in Cotswold in July visiting Chipping Camden, Broadway Tower, Moreton in Marsh, Stow on the Wold, Snowshill, Stanton, Stanway, Lower Slaughter, Bourton on the Water, Cheltenham, Burford, Bibury and The Arlington Row. The most outstanding are 1. the stone cottages in the region - signatures of Cotswold, 2.Snowshill Lavender farm - just stunning and could have drunken you if you had stayed too long in the distillery, smell of lavender even in open fields is so strong but mind-soothing 3. Dusk skylight in Stow on the Wold with the skyline dyed from purple to red, and 4. needless to say the post-card setting of the Arlington Row makes the whole trip unforgettable.

We enjoyed a lovely day with Tim from Tour the Cotswolds. We had booked a tour of Hyclere Castle (the site where Downton Abbey was filmed) but got much more than that! Tim was very knowledgeable and on our was took us through quaint villages, along one track roads you would never find yourself and showed us interesting buildings along the way (churches etc) which he could tell us about in great detail. We also stopped at several Downton Abbey locations including the village of Swinbrook and the Swan the pub where Lady Sybil and Branson planned their elopement as well as the Downton village (Bampton). Hyclere Castle was well worth the visit. In addition to the castle itself, there is an interesting Egypt exhibit. The 5th Earl of Carnarvon (the family that owns Hyclere) financed expeditions to Egypt including the one which discovered King Tut's tomb. One little hint, on line they will tell you the tickets are sold out, but if you go in the afternoon and are a small party, you can get tickets at the gate. All in all a great day.

A day touring the Cotswolds is truly a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of crowded and noisy London. About 1 1/2 hours driving along small gorgeous country roads, you are like in another land. The cottages and homes range from magnificent to charming, but what they all seem to have in common are magnificent trees and gardens , overflowing with flowers, small streams and rivers, and , if you are lucky, even some swans. Every so often, there is a street in a town with some shops and tea rooms, even those are overflowing with flowers. The only problem is this area's popularity, with more tourists than I would have hoped . But it was a lovely, peaceful way to spend an afternoon.

Decided to splurge for a tour of the Cotswolds with Tim Harrison. It was a most amazing day! Tim is extremely knowledgeable about the area and has hundreds of stories to share. He is meticulous in planning an individual itinerary for every client and tries to shape the tour to best meet your needs. And he listens to you! He plans the day so that at certain points he leaves you to wander an attraction at your own pace. That worked out very well. A day with Tim is not inexpensive and some of the places he takes you have admission charges as well. But if you want to see a beautiful part of England, in comfort, with an expert, Tim's your man!
