The Carter Company - Gentle Cycling, Walking and Touring
Tel: +44 (0)1296 631671
Our cycling and walking holidays offer a choice of gentle or swift itineraries through the Cotswolds from our bases in Stratford and Oxford. Tours can be self-led, guided or bespoke; with a choice of boutique luxury or classic quality accommodation available. We are a family-run business - we enjoy meeting and looking after our customers, and above all sharing the wonderful sights of the Cotswolds with you!
What sets us apart from other tour operators is our attention to detail and insider knowledge. With over 25 years of experience, our passionate team have personally cycled or walked every one of our trips.
We believe in the art of slow travel. If you're looking for a unique way to explore the Cotswolds, which offers a more authentic experience than the typical package tour, our cycling and walking holidays could be perfect for you. Designed with the thoughtful traveller in mind, our creative, thoughtful routes aim to show you the hidden gems of the Cotswolds, not just the highlights. We’ve put a lot of care into finding routes along charming back roads and quiet lanes that minimise the slopes and maximise your enjoyment. Pedal through countryside and towns alike, and soak up the local landscape, culture, history and cuisine.
Many of our routes travel through the Cotswolds and continue on to Bath, Oxford, the Chilterns or London, so there’s plenty of opportunity to explore further afield too.
Our leisurely holidays are ideal for couples, solos, families with children aged 7 upwards, and groups both big and small.
All tours include luggage transfers, a full support service from our helpful hosts, hand-picked accommodation with breakfast each day and bike hire – typically hybrids, but electric and road bikes are available on request.
