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 on exeat weekends and half-terms. Day pupils may also use this service on exeat weekends but it is subject to space available and they will be charged. The service runs between London Paddington and the glorious Cotswolds. Pupils can also join and leave the service at all points, including Hanborough, Oxford & Slough.
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 Charlbury. Here they are picked up by the school bus and driven through beautiful Cotswold countryside to the castle.
On Friday evenings of exeat weekends, with the school week behind them, children head back to London with homework done, the weekend will be free to enjoy with their families.
