The Cotswold Flyer

All aboard the Cotswold Flyer!

Are you thinking of combining the London lifestyle with the joys of boarding in the countryside? Hatherop Castle’s Cotswold Flyer service could be the solution you need.

We provide a free escorted travel for our weekly boarding and full boarding pupils. The service runs between London Paddington and the glorious Cotswolds. Pupils can also join and leave the service at all points between, including Swindon, Reading and Didcot Parkway.

On Sunday evenings, after a weekend at home, children are met by a member of staff at Paddington Station and board the train to head west. With friends to chat to, books to read and games to play, the time flies and in just over an hour, they arrive at the pretty rural station at Kemble. Here they are picked up by the school bus and driven through beautiful Cotswold countryside to the castle.

On Friday evenings, with the school week behind them, children head back to London with a delicious packed supper to tie them over. With homework done on the train, the weekend will be free to enjoy with their families.

Weekly boarding pupils can also choose to stay at Hatherop Castle for the weekend at no extra charge, to enjoy the fun and varied trips offered every week, from tree running to museums, and to have free run of the lovely castle and grounds. The service is entirely flexible and parents can decide whether their children will stay in or come home each weekend.
