A taste of what the Cotswold Way has to offer...

2nd January 2019

Walking in the Cotswolds provides a wealth of choices with gentle strolls, hilly hikes and a variety of circular walks including many level, stile-free walks for wheelchairs and easy access.  Among the many walks on offer is the Cotswold Way National Trail.

This beautiful 102-mile route, along with 14 circular walks along the trail, takes in some of the Cotswolds’ best scenery with sweeping views, historic monuments and picturesque villages along the way. Combine this with thousands of miles of footpaths and bridleways along rolling hills, dramatic escarpment and winding river valleys and you have a walker’s paradise in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Don't just take our word for it, you can view the shared experiences of those who have completed the trail already on our Cotswold Way Hall of Fame, there is also an informative blog with photos written last year by Nick Johnston covering the stretch from Cheltenham to Bath which can be viewed at http://n.d.cx/misc/cheltenham_to_bath_walk/
