When you have important corporate visitors from overseas, you’ll want to host them in fully catered luxury. At the same time, you’ll want to show them the very Best of Britain. In our opinion there is no better or more beautiful place than the Cotswolds.
The Cotswolds, extending over nearly 800 square miles of mostly hills and farmland, is designated as the UK’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It stretches from just south of Stratford-upon-Avon in the north to Bath in the south. The name derives from ‘sheep enclosures in the hills’. The early wealth of the area was founded on the wool trade. It is classic English beauty.
It is also brim full of English history. Old Roman towns, medieval wool trading villages and country houses to visit – including the only estate where one of Henry VIII’s six wives is buried.
Ancient roads such as The Fosse Way, stunning scenery, and a true sense of ancient and modern culture from Anne Hathaway’s Cottage through wonderfully historic pubs to state-of-the-art craft gin distilleries.
There are also some spectacular places to stay. Elite Gourmet Escapes offers a choice of 3 lovely Cotswold-stone build Manor Houses of varying sizes, all fully catered, with exceptional food cooked by a private chef, matched by fine wines from around the world.
You can rest assured that even the most discerning visitors will feel at home, English style, on an Elite Gourmet Escape. We can tailor-make an itinerary to suit any requirements including golf, horse-racing, glorious gardens, Highclere Castle – the setting for Downton Abbey – and much more besides. Equally we can design a special itinerary if they are travelling with their partners or significant others.
