Visited the Cotswold on a Sunday with the Walking Tours group. The tourguide was excellent, very witty and helpful gentleman called Richard. Met at Paddington station at 9am, paid GBP60 which included train and coach payment for bringing us around. Took the train with the group from Paddington station and alighted at Kingham. From there we had our own private... More

We followed this well-signed walk through so many quaint little villages. It was the best walking tour of any area in England.

We did a fabulous week in the Cotswolds on a self guided tour prepared for us by Cotswold Walks. They arranged for all the hotels and the taxis when needed. They also suggested walks from the 3 different towns we stayed in and provided maps of each location. They made suggestions of museums and gardens and other attractions. It was... More

On our recent trip to the UK we spent a day visiting the Cotswolds. This has to be one of the most beautiful areas of England, the scenery has to be seen to appreciate its beauty. Villages like Bourton - on- the-water, the thatched cottages and the famous jam & clotted cream scones all make it as though you were... More

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful country side in U.K. It's very near London, so a day trip is sufficient. Go in summer for the long daylight and good weather. Bring an umbrella in case of rain. The Cotswolds rolling hills comprises of Cirencester, Stow-on-the-wold, Chipping Camden, Tetbury, Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water. The Cotswolds have beautifully preserved thatched cottages... More

This is not really a review of a particular attraction, but rather of the entire area. Although we spent some time in London, I am so glad we toured around the Cotswolds, vising such beautiful towns such as Bath, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Mold, The Slaughters, etc. (love the names!). There is just so much history in these towns it was... More

We took advantage of the good sun this Sunday to go to this part of the Cotswold Way. The way itself is over 102 miles and finishes in Bath. We wanted a family hike so picked the Stanton to Snowshill circular walk . It's about 6.5 mile loop and takes you through two iconic Cotswold villages, some amazing hills and... More

I've done a few bits of this route, but as it actually passes near where we live, it's a bit of a lazy day out. Near us the path follows the edge of the escarpment, from Dursley to Stroud. Stunning views, lovely beech and ash woodland, plenty of stop-offs and much to do besides. The country round here is soft;... More

I walked the Cotswold way from south to north over 8 days. All the accommodation was excellent and as a lone female I felt safe, crossing paths with people at least every half an hour or so; and regular chats with fellow walkers. I booked all my accommodation in advance but relied on finding a pub or shop for lunch,... More

Highly recommended for walking the Cotswolds hills! Just get yourself some printed directions for any of the walks, and then follow the signs along the way. Idyllic countryside! Not to be missed!
