Cotswold Way

The Cotswold Way is a long distance walk that runs for 102 miles (163km) from the medieval market town of Chipping Campden in the North Cotswolds, to the historic City of Bath. Following the western edge of the Cotswold Hills, the Cotswold Way route journeys through gently rolling, sheep-grazed pastures, stunning beech woodland, and dreamy, honey-coloured villages built from the delightfully warm Cotswold stone. You will cross ancient commons in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, pass Neolithic burial barrows, beautiful stately homes, and historic battle sites. The path along the escarpment twists and turns, affording ever-changing views to the west towards the River Severn and the Malvern Hills.

Our colleagues Katie and Shelley recently walked the 102 miles from Chipping Campden to Bath. Click here to read about their walking holiday on the Cotswold Way.

We would like to compliment you on your service and your information. Everything went very well. There were no (negative) surprises on the way. Accommodations were perfect, your information about restaurants was good, the transportation of our luggage was perfect and we really enjoyed the walk.

So well arranged. Beautiful and friendly accommodation. We really appreciate the luxurious accommodation and all the little extras. We talked to fellow travellers who also travelled with Mickledore and we agreed that Mickledore could not be better. It is not our first time with you and hopefully not the last either.
