Unless you book an organised tour, it would be hard to visit this area other than by car, though a determined planner with time on their hands could make use of the network of buses, and there is a mainline route through parts of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.

On our recent visit we followed a route that took us from London on the M40 and A40, bypassing Oxford (beautiful though it is) and turning north into the Cotswolds themselves just before Witney. A loop then took us north through the Wychwoods (still in Oxfordshire), then across into Gloucestershire to visit Adlestrop, before heading a little west to Stow-on-the-Wold for afternoon tea, and then south through the Slaughters and back to the main road via Burford.

But however you travel, and wherever you go, please do get out and about to stroll through the pretty villages or perhaps take a longer walk across the lovely green countryside between them.
