On Day Two, we’ll visit the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo and indulge in a fantastic Sunday Lunch. You’ll start the day by boarding the coach and heading out to see the butterflies. 


Home to an astoundingly varied number of species, the Butterfly Zoo offers you a fantastic opportunity to learn a little more about these beautiful creatures. This particular zoo is also heavily involved in butterfly conservation around the world, so you’ll also hear about the work being done to protect them.


On leaving the zoo, we’ll head back to the hotel for a delicious Sunday roast with all the trimmings. You’ll have a little time to unwind after the meal and then you can choose to take a stroll into nearby Ross-on-Wye, spend the afternoon on the banks of the River Wye or simply enjoy the hotel and its gardens.

The Cotswolds remains one of the most iconic stretches of English countryside and a popular destination for tourists who love the honey-stone cottages and dry-stone walls that line the region’s rural lanes. Today, we’ll travel to Bourton on the Water - one of the area’s most famous villages - to get a feel for life in the Cotswolds.


While there, we’ll visit Bourton’s famous Motor Museum, which is home to hundreds of vintage vehicles and a diverse collection of automobile memorabilia. You’ll then have the chance to wander around the village and explore its quaint shops and cafes. Don’t forget to pick up your holiday souvenirs along the way!

After a relaxing morning enjoying the hotel and its spectacular natural surroundings, we’ll board the coach and head over to Sudeley Castle. A wonderful, festive experience, this National Trust property puts on an unmissable Christmas light show every year. 


We’ll start the visit with a tour of this historic castle, which is well-known as the resting place of Catherine Parr - the last of Henry VIII’s six wives. Then, as the sun sets, you’ll be treated to the after-dark Sudeley Spectacle of Light. With several different light displays, including the awe-inspiring Light Curve and the flickering flames of the Queen’s Garden, it’s sure to get you in the Christmas mood!


There’s also plenty of food and drink stalls at the castle, so you can tuck into some fresh mince pies, warm yourself up with a mulled wine or grab a hot chocolate as you enjoy the spectacle.

Festive Steam Train with Afternoon Tea

On Day Five, we’ll be visiting the Forest of Dean. However, rather than driving around the woodlands, we’ll be boarding a traditional steam train and taking a memorable railway ride through some of the most spectacular scenery in the west. As well as passing pretty, rural villages, you’ll be taken through ancient woodland and beautiful winter landscapes.


To make sure you’re extra comfortable on board the steam train, you’ll be served an excellent afternoon tea that will prove the perfect accompaniment to a truly special, festive journey.T

At Limitless Travel, we know that Christmas isn’t really Christmas without a good, old festive panto! So, on Day Six, we’ll drive over to the cathedral city of Hereford to watch a matinee panto performance. It’s a timeless holiday tradition, so make sure you’re ready for a bit of classic call and response. We want to hear you when it’s time to shout “He’s behind you!”

On your final, full day on holiday, we’ll be visiting Gloucester and its historic cathedral. A grand, exciting example of various styles of gothic architecture, the cathedral can trace its origins back to the Norman invasion and boasts a fantastically fascinating past. It’s also been used as an atmospheric backdrop in several big films, including Harry Potter. 


You’ll be taken on a guided tour of the cathedral’s elaborate rooms and extensive cloisters, before we pause for a little lunch and then head into the city centre for some last-minute Christmas shopping.
