Recently did one of the Cotswold self-guided walking tours through Active England. The itinerary was excellent, as was Jago Hartland who met with us for orientation and kept in touch with us every morning through WhatsApp confirming that day's plans. Every trip like this will have the odd issue crop up, but, what few minor hiccups we had Jago took care of quickly and efficiently. All-in-all it was a very positive experience, a great deal of fun and we would certainly book future adventures with Active England.

Super helpful, friendly and amenable team at Active England helped us have a brilliant experience. We are a late 50's Australian couple and not super fit, but the ebikes make it possible to go the back roads and find the treasures with plenty of " rehydration stations" along the way, ranging from tea to beer. The bikes were strong and reliable, and the team was on hand if any assistance was needed. We took the higher accomodation package and the hotels were charming and comfortable, in exquisite towns. We also took all their advice on restaurants and didnt regret it. Had a wonderful time. Will be in touch for the Lakes district next year.

Our Cotswolds bike trip was Amazing!! Thank you to our fantastic guide, Conor.
The countryside was picture perfect with great little villages and sites to take in all along our rides. Each day was so rewarding. The historic sites are so incredible to see and learn more about. The B&B's were perfect! The people so welcoming and friendly.
Loved our bike tour. We highly recommend taking the tour!

I loved the freedom and flexibility of Active England's self-guided Short Walks in the Cotswolds tour. It was easy to use the provided routes, the hotels were very nice, and the luggage transfer allowed us to enjoy our walking experience without worry. I was traveling solo, and never felt the least bit unsafe. I loved the fact that the days were planned but with plenty of time for personal exploration. I will definitely do another tour with Active England in the future.

Had an amazing 4 day bike tour in the Cotwolds with our guide Amanda, tour director Jago and support from the wonderful office staff. We have nothing but great things to say about the whole experience from the wonderful, funny and interesting guides, the amazing routes and scenery, and cozy inns and restaurants. We have been lucky to do guided trips in various parts of the world and this trip was with out a doubt one of the best that we have experienced. Don't think twice.....just book this trip!
Thanks for the amazing memories folks.....Lisa and Jacques

From the planning stages of our fabulous self guided walk in the Cotswolds to our transfer and tour of Oxford and Bath, the Active England team were excellent. Jago took excellent care of our needs, was always in touch along the way with recommendations and advise.

The perfect way to experience the Cotswolds was on a bicycle. Four days of lovely countryside, interesting inns, old churches and charming towns. Rick did an awesome job of supporting our group as we navigated our way along quiet country roads. Highly recommend this adventure!

Can't say enough about Jago and the team. Walks were stupendous, inns were stunning, and the pub/restaurant recommendations were spot on. Transportation always punctual. Jago even gave us a bonus tour of Stowe on the Wold.

What a fabulous few days! Our guides, Tatty and Chris looked after us incredibly well. We didn't have to look at a map/check tide times/book restaurants/drive. Great swims in both river and sea. Felt totally safe with our guides at front and rear of the swim group. Loved the other guests - laughed loads! Came home a little sunburnt and exhausted but very happy!

The walk up to Sharrah Pool was a good hike (which we enjoyed), but anyone with slight mobility issues might have struggled. Otherwise - perfect!

So many different secret and semi-secret swimming places that I could never have found on my own - and even if I had found them, I wouldn't have wanted to be doing the drives to get there ! I didn't know the rest of the group and was on my own, but this didn't matter after the first few minutes - credit to Will the guide for all that. I also hoped to improve my stroke and the day after the trip I went swimming in my usual lake and found my speed had doubled from the week before, I'm sure due to the tips on technique that I hoped for and was given. The age range was 21 to 69 (me) but that didn't seem to count. We had excellent food in basic rooms above a pub, which was absolutely the right way round and we were all completely exhausted and exhilarated at the end of each day, and the whole trip.

If you love wild swimming, this is a brilliant short break. I'm even thinking about booking again for next year.
