What to Expect from our Cotswolds Walking Holiday

Return to nature hiking through the Cotswolds, enjoying the freedoms of walking in at your own pace, in your own time. Immerse yourself in the history and heritage of England and explore the Cotswolds countryside by walking on your own, as a couple or bringing friends and family to walk with you.

Through fields and over rolling hills to stay in honey coloured Cotswold villages and bustling market towns. The Cotswold hills are perfect walking country, taking winding lanes and national footpaths, you will feel transported back into England as it was before mechanisation, where sheep and dry-stone walling were the biggest industries. Relax and enjoy walking from Palace to country pubs, unique gardens, along the rivers and more.   

No Hassle Self-Guided Walking Tours

We take all the hassle out of walking by picking you up from Moreton in Marsh, a direct 90 minute journey out of London Paddington taking you straight into the Cotswolds. Included in your tour are all luggage transfers, all accommodation bookings, maps, GPS instructions, and providing transfers to incredible iconic palaces, estates, gardens, and more to visit along the way. Walk through the Cotswolds along canals, rivers and meadows into our Chocolate box villages, towns and cities to discover the real England in all its glory.

Cotswolds Autumn Self Guided Walking Itinerary

Day 1Golden Stoned Chipping Campden, Broadway Tower, The Eccentric Hidcote Gardens

We collect you from Moreton in Marsh train station, a 90 minute direct journey from London Paddington, and take you straight out into the Cotswolds to begin walking. In the morning you’ll walk from golden-stoned Chipping Campden through the fields to the stunning gardens at Hidcote, renowned for its series of ‘outdoor rooms’. From there, visit Broadway Tower overlooking the northernmost extreme of the Cotswolds, and, on a clear day, with views all the way to Wales, before walking into Broadway town itself, one of the prettiest villages the Cotswolds has to offer. Return in the evening to Moreton in Marsh and your hotel for the night.

Mileage: 5-8 miles

Day 2Blenheim Palace and its 2000 acre estate – Birthplace of Churchill

We transfer guests to the start of today’s walk in Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born and a World Heritage Site. With 3000 acres of Capability parkland to explore, todays walk is a stunning wander around lakes, serpentine streams, woodland and into the Palace itself for a tour in the afternoon. In the early evening we return to Burford and your hotel in this pretty market town.

Mileage: 4-7 miles

Day 3Barnsley, Bibury and Arlington Row, Swinbrook and the River Windrush

We transfer you the short journey to the village of Barnsley to walk across fields, along rivers, through woodlands and into Bibury, famous for its row of weavers’ cottages, Arlington Row, pictured inside the cover of British passports. It’s easy to see why William Morris called Bibury ‘The most beautiful village in England’ – with its wonderful stone buildings strung out along the banks of the River Coln. Travelling back to Burford in the afternoon, we stop in Swinbrook, so you can walk from the famous Mitford Sisters’ childhood home, along the River Windrush and directly to your hotel.

Mileage: 5-7 miles

Day 4The River Thames into Oxford

We drop you off in Eynsham on the outskirts of Oxford to walk along the Thames, through the locks, into Port Meadow and past Godstow Abbey into the centre of town. This beautiful route is the best way into Oxford, along the winding river banks, past the wild ponies and the Oxford rowing huts. From here we’ll drop you off at Oxford station where our guides will help you with any ongoing travel arrangements.

Mileage: 5-7 miles
