Long but very enjoyable. We did this in the winter (end January) and of course it was cold but we did see some sun and no snow. The start of the walk from Seven Springs to Leckhampton hill is stunning with glorious views of Cheltenham and the Devils Chimney! Negotiating the busy roads at the Air Balloon roundabout is a...

We loved the frosty landscape and the cosy village pubs and coffee houses. Recommend staying away from the A roads and pottering along the country lanes where English country life is still going strong.

I did the entire walk solo - 168 kms over 8 days starting at Chipping Campden and finishing in Bath. The scenery is simply stunning . I would frequently stop in my tracks in awe of the beauty before me. There are lovely B&B to stay in along the way. The path is very well sign posted but I did... More

We found hiking the Cotswold Way a unique and wonderful experience, but we had planned for 4 days, and ended after three. We were not prepared for the difficult ascents and descents, especially from Chipping Camden to Stanton. And again, the area that is also a motor cross trail near Cheltenham was very difficult footing. We had no problem with... More

We were staying in Cheltenham (highly recommended) and thought we'd try a few days' cycling along the Cotswolds Way. Not bike friendly - totally unlike the S Downs Way. If you are on foot, great views and worthwhil. On a bicycle - forget it

Having done some research we rounded on this walk. the weather was set to be rather dull and we decided on the short route. The signposting was very good and we had a very pleasant walk that started at Stanton. It was a very pretty village and a lovely walk.

The Cotswold way is a great place to go for a jolly ramble. There is an excellent pub called The Seven Springs that have a huge car park and they are willing if you phone in advance to warn them, allowing you to use the car park. The walk is lovely beautiful sights in the summer!

My wife and I did "the Best Of The Cotswolds" self guided walking tour offered by Cotswold Walks in September 2014. This was by far the best vacation we have taken. The daily walks were great , passing through picturesque villages, fields and wooded trails. The accommodations were wonderful and we never had a complaint. The map booklet was the... More
