Cotswold Way – Self guided
The world-renowned Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a glorious jumble of stunning landscapes, picture-perfect villages, rich cultural and historical heritage and wonderful biodiversity.
The Cotswold Way path meanders along the western fringe of the Cotswold limestone escarpment, passing through ancient beech woodlands, rare grassland, glorious meadows, Neolithic, Roman and medieval sites and some of England’s prettiest villages.
Our specially-designed hiking itinerary also includes part of the Monarch’s Way at Stratford-upon-Avon, giving you the opportunity to discover and explore William Shakespeare’s hometown.
You’ll walk on soft pathways that climb gentle, undulating hills, as well as walk some tougher ascents, but the effort is worth it. There are endless views and achingly gorgeous honey-coloured villages to enjoy. Not to mention the abundance of wild-flowers, butterflies, grasses, streams and Cotswold sheep known as the ‘Cotswold Lion’.
