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 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 are transferred 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. From here guests head out to 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 through stunning lavender fields to Snowshill Manor for lunch, where 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, where guests stay for the next two nights.
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, before taking the steam train back to their hotel in Broadway for the evening.
Mileage: 10 miles
After a transfer to the hills above Winchcombe, guests wind their way through the enchanting woodlands of the Foxcombe Estate and tiny villages stopping for lunch in the pretty village of Guiting Power. Our route follows the river Windrush through Naunton and into the Slaughters – these exceptional villages, with their photogenic streams and bridges, are incredibly popular highlights of our tour and a step back in time into an England before mechanisation. Guests stay in the Slaughters overnight.
Mileage: 10 miles
From the Slaughters guests walk to the historic town of Stow on the Wold, a medieval market place sat on the Fosse Way – a long distance Roman road. Guests walk on to Donnington and Broadwell, famous for their Brewery and delicious Donnington Ale, before returning to Moreton in Marsh and the end of the tour. We help guests with their direct trains back to London Paddington all other on-going travel.
