The Cotswold Way, one of England’s finest National Trails, takes you 104 miles (167 km) from the medieval market town of Chipping Campden in the North Cotswolds to the historic City of Bath, through the classic English countryside.
The Cotswold Way dissects the largest of all of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales: an area with stone walls and buildings, open skies, rolling grasslands, beech woods and captivating villages, making it an outstanding English landscape.
Following the western edge of the Cotswold Hills, this route passes through a succession of enchanting English villages, featuring honey-coloured cottages built from the delightfully warm Cotswold stone, and welcoming country inns and pubs.
The path undulates through stunning landscapes, affording ever-changing views over the River Severn and the Malvern Hills. Along the way, you will also pass Neolithic burial barrows, beautiful stately homes, and historic battle sites. End your walking holiday in the City of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, brimming with roman remains and fine architecture.
We offer a range of walking holidays along the Cotswold Way.
You can choose to walk the whole route in either 8 days or 9 days, or alternatively, you can walk either the Northern or Southern sections as a shorter break. Whichever option you go for you can guarantee that the Cotswolds offers a landscape that once experienced will not be easily forgotten as no two days of walking are ever the same.
We offer two walking holidays covering the whole of the Cotswold Way. The longer the holiday, the shorter the distances that you have to walk across the Cotswold countryside each day.
This walking holiday guides you along the northern section of the Cotswold Way and follows the western edge of the Cotswold Hills from Chipping Campden to Painswick.
A walking holiday set along the southern section of the Cotswold Way through stunning woodlands and past ancient historical sites. A beautiful section of the trail that ends in the World Heritage City of Bath.
Walking the Cotswolds Trail was a fantastic experience. Thank you very much for your excellent organisation of everything. Your planning was outstanding. With no doubt, I would choose you again.
