The Cotswold Way is one of the most beautiful and popular walking trails, stretching from Chipping Campden to Bath. Along the way walkers are treated to beautiful views of the countryside in this area of outstanding natural beauty, as well as picturesque villages where a traditional Sunday lunch Cotswolds style is never far away.
At just over 100 miles, most people spend around a week on this walk, taking in the beautiful English Countryside along the way. Of course, the weather is never guaranteed so you might need to pack a range of clothes, and don’t forget waterproofs!
If you are considering walking this fantastic walk, here are some of the best bits to look out for…
Broadway Tower – Stop off to see this amazing hilltop tower – take a walk around the grounds designed by Capability Brown, explore the tower itself and even see a nuclear bunker, a relic from the Cold War.
Winchcombe – Villages don’t come more pretty and picturesque than Winchcombe! Spend time wandering around this beautiful Cotswold village which could easily be in a bygone era. Enjoy the local foods in one of the excellent restaurants and visit nearby Soudley castle for your history fix!
Cleeve Hill – If you want spectacular views this is the place to go. For views across all of Gloucestershire, see the green fields and rolling hills that Gloucestershire is famous for, as well as the views of the River Severn and the spectacular trees of the Forest of Dean.
