Look forward to a luxurious stay at the stunning four star Bedford Swan Hotel, an 18th century spa hotel overlooking the Great Ouse River, just a five minute walk from Bedford town centre. Saturday we head to Woburn Abbey for a tour of the exquisite house, home to the Duke & Duchess of Bedford and a plethora of exciting architecture, art collections and underground vaults, this is followed by time to enjoy the gardens. Next stop is Woburn, dubbed the perfect Georgian village, with time to explore the quirky shops perhaps sample the local food and drink before heading back to Bedford. Our break is bookended with stops in pretty Stamford and historic Lincoln.
