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.

I have just returned from my Cotswold Way – the experience was delightful. Your staff handled our trip professionally, the B&B “innkeepers” were all engaging and competent. In short it was a great trip. Thanks again for your professionalism and flexibility.
