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 rediscover the English countryside by walking on your own, as a couple or bringing friends and family to walk with you.
We have created a magical mix of must see Cotswolds highlights and the hidden gems that dot this fabulous landscape. Our handpicked 4* and 3* hotels are the best in the Cotswolds, providing wonderful cuisine and a relaxing environment to rest weary feet at the end of the day, walking an average of 10 miles a day.
We take all the hassle out of walking by including all luggage transfers, organising and booking all accommodation, providing maps, GPS instructions, and recommending incredible iconic manors, estates, gardens, ancient sites and more to visit along the way. Walk through the Cotswolds along canals, rivers and meadows into our incredible towns and cities.
Guests arrive at lunchtime by train from London Paddington into Moreton in Marsh, a 90 minute direct journey. Our guides will meet you at the station and settle you into your hotel. We give you a full and detailed briefing on the tour and set you off on an afternoon walk to Batsford’s impressive arboretum, one of the largest private tree collections in the country and a gentle introduction to the Cotswold landscape.
Mileage: 6.5 miles
Guests walk through the beautiful countryside, through Broad Campden, famous for its topiary, and onto to the historic market town of Chipping Campden, with its honey coloured medieval buildings and market hall, built on the back of the wool trade. Should guests want extra miles there are routes towards the stunning Hidcote Gardens and its eccentric series of American inspired ‘outdoor rooms’. Our route takes guests back to their hotel in Chipping Campden for the evening.
Mileage: 9 miles
Guests head out of Chipping Campden to Broadway Tower, a striking folly tower perched on the top of the Cotswold escarpment, from where you can see 16 counties and all the way to Wales. There is an optional walk to Snowshill Manor for lunch; whose house and gardens contain wonderfully eccentric collections of Cotswold treasures. The afternoon walk leads guests to their hotel in Broadway, a stunning town of golden limestone houses and one of the true jewels of the Cotswolds.
Mileage: 10 miles
Guests walk through the Cotswold’s rolling hills from Broadway to Winchcombe, past an Iron Age fort and to the magnificent ruins at Hailes Abbey, founded in 1246 and once the centre of Cistercian monastic life. The walk continues towards the enchanting Sudeley Castle & Gardens, where Queen Catherine Parr, sixth wife of King Henry VIII, is buried. Guests can walk into for Winchcombe for afternoon tea, and the end of the tour. We transport you to Cheltenham Station where our guides will help you with ongoing travel, with regular departures into London and out to the Midlands from here.
