New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

The listed Georgian hall is surrounded by 12 acres of rolling park and woodland for guests to explore. Explore chocolate-box Upton St Leonards, step back in time at Painswick Rococo Garden, or clamber up escarpments in the nearby Cotswolds. When you have had your fill of rural calm venture into Gloucester, with its rejuvenated docks, Antique Market and Folk Museum just three miles away.

Rolling hills and idyllic villages define the Cotswolds. Take leisurely visits to quintessentially English towns with fairy-tale names like Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. You'll also find thatched cottages, twisting footpaths and historic landmarks like Blenheim Palace (birthplace of Winston Churchill), Jane Austen's home and Gloucester Cathedral. The spa town of Cheltenham, with its Regency architecture, makes a good base for exploring.

Painswick Rococo Garden
Painswick Rococo Garden was designed in the 1740s as a flamboyant pleasure garden for Benjamin Hyett to entertain his guests.  This was a time when gardens were fashionable theatrical sets, providing a stunning backdrop to decadent garden parties.  Instead of a flower garden, you will happen across a stunning vegetable garden, beautifully-framed views of the surrounding countryside and fanciful garden buildings.  You can lose yourself amongst the lofty trees of the leafy woodland walk and watch friends and family battle to find the centre of our unusual maze.  And afterwards, enjoy delicious homemade cakes or a light lunch in the cosy cafe on site.

Gloucester Folk Museum
One of the oldest-established museums dedicated to social history. The collections have been drawn together mainly through gifts from the entire county of Gloucestershire, and represent one of the most fascinating collections of such material. Set in 500 year old Tudor timber-framed buildings, one of which was traditionally associated with the final night of the Protestant martyr, Bishop Hooper, the Folk Museum is a complex of rooms on different levels with a unique ambiance that makes it a popular sight for locals and visitors. Behind the chocolate-box facade is a museum with a cottage garden to the rear which is both larger than seems possible, and constantly surprising.
