ABOUT TOURING THE COTSWOLDS
Tim was born and brought up on the family farm in the village of Snowshill in the North Cotswolds. Tim was the middle son of 3 boys. Tim chose to stay in farming, running his own sheep farming enterprise, he rented land on the Cotswolds and breed lambs from his flock of 1200 breeding sheep. His elder brother went into international business, whilst his younger brother became an accomplished artist. Tim married his wife Jacki in 1968 they have 2 Sons, and 3 Grandsons. Tim has lived and worked in the Cotswold area for most of his life. After College and working near London for 12 months Tim returned to Snowshill and married his wife Jacki.
Although still farming Tim and Jacki set up a delicatessen and mail order food hamper business in 1986, this business was successful and they sold the business on in 1999. In 2014 following on from Jacki’s B&B business, Tim & Jacki converted the Cottage in the garden to a Holiday Cottage ww.sheepscombebyre.com which is popular with visitors.
In 2002 Tim identified a need for a guided tour chauffeur service to offer to their guests and other hospitality businesses in the area, so with his wealth of local and countrywide knowledge Tim’s “Tour The Cotswolds” chauffeur tour guide service started and has progressed so much that Tim now has cut down on his farming activities and spends nearly all of his time on tours.
Many of Tim’s clients are visitors from abroad mainly USA, Canada, and Japan. In recent Years Tim has added a growing number of guests from Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, Russia, and Australia to his clientele.
Both Tim’s and Jacki’s businesses are promoted well in Rick Steves’s UK travel guide, and also in Yumiko Tivers’s Cotswold guide book.
