Autumn Walking In The Cotswolds - Walk Your Way!

Autumn Walking in England

As we edge to a new normal post lockdown, we can’t wait to get outside into the countryside with family, and friends old and new. Our Autumn Walking tours allow you to explore the magical golden world of russet leaves catching the sun in Batsford Arboretum, the ethereal autumn light glimmering on the water at Lower Slaughter, and the glorious Cotswold hills are bathed in colour. October holidays never looked so good!

Our new protocols allow you travel with us safely in confidence, in these times. Step beyond the endless screen time of zoom calls, indoor work out videos and embarrassing work quizzes, as we share our favourite season with your, when every leaf becomes a flower.

Return to Nature Walking this Autumn

Autumn will be worth the wait! When all around you the landscape changes, the trees begin to turn amber, orange yellow and red. Leaves cover the ground, mists rise from the valleys and often the days are crisp with a bright blue sky. Escape to where the air is clean and smells are earthy and of nature, with the promise of a mug of hot chocolate or a well earned pint awaiting you after your walk or ride. Bangers and mash, toad in the hole, apple pie and custard and proper pub food; they all taste better after a long walk through the countryside.

Cotswolds Mini-Breaks Only an Hour from London

Our holidays are designed to put you at ease and escape the daily stresses of normal life. Starting in Moreton-in-Marsh, a direct and easy train ride out of London, you can begin your holiday stress-free. We have created a magical mix of the best walking trails throughout the Cotswolds which lead you away from the crowds and back to nature. 

Top things you need to know before visiting the Cotswolds

Is England nice in the Autumn?

Autumn arrives from September until late November and is a wonderful season for walking, temperatures are mild and cool, there is not burning heat in the middle of the day, and all around you as you walk the landscape changes. The trees begin to turn amber, orange yellow and red. Leaves cover the ground, mists rise from the valleys and often the days are crisp with a bright blue sky. Check out our blogs on The Best Autumn Tours and Walks for some outdoor inspiration.

What is the best way to get out of London into the Countryside?

The best way out of London and into the Cotswolds is by train, out of London Paddington, and directly to Moreton-in-Marsh. All of our Autumn trips begin from these here so you can arrive relaxed, refreshed and ready to start your tour. 

Can I do this tour as a solo traveller?

All our trips are open for single travellers to join. With full emergency support from our team and full GPS instructions, equipment, maps and more you will have a great time on our self-guided cycle tours whether travelling on your own, as a couple, family or group. “As a single female, I would not hesitate to go on another Active England trip as a solo traveller”. S.G.

How hilly is the Cotswolds?

The Cotswolds is a hill range, with its name stemming from ‘Cote’ meaning sheep enclosure and ‘wold’ meaning hills. There are therefore lots of hills and incredible views from the top! However, you will able to miss out some of the steeper inclines – or add in some trickier hills for those looking to stretch their legs. There are walking and cycling routes for everyone and we can tailor your tour to your preferences.
