Example Itinerary

Here is an example itinerary we’ve made for you to see just some of the joys of Town, Village & Countryside and the things you can expect to see and do during your Safari Stay.  

Day 1: Arrive at Frome

Many of our guests love to take a short and simple journey to Bath, a world heritage site full of fun and curiosities. Don’t forget to take in the thermal spa, and the famous Royal Crescent. Theatres and museums abound and it’s also the historical home of Jane Austen.

Day 2: Frome > Bourton-in-the-Hill

Take a stroll around Bourton House Gardens. Beautiful to visit in any season, the gardens present a magnificent late summer flourish when many gardens have run their course. 
Wander down to Moreton-in-Marsh where you’ll find Batsford Arboretum; 56-acres of dog-friendly gardens with trees and shrubs from around the world, a plant centre and a cafe.

Day 3: Bourton-on-the-Hill > Buckland Marsh

Pull-on your walking boots and choose between absorbing Oxfordshire’s finest rolling green vistas and medieval architecture or heading to the water to follow the iconic Thames Path National Trail which stretches 294km all the way to the Thames Barrier. Use their website to plan your day’s walk.
