In June 2015 we did a self-guided walk arranged by Cotswold Walks, run by Andrew Guppy (www.cotswoldwalks.com). The walk we did was an extended version of "The Cotswold". All of the logistics worked flawlessly. It was easy to book through Andrew, and we received our documents in plenty of time before going. All of the accommodation was excellent, and very... More

we walked from Moreton in Marsh for 6 days in a circle back to Moreton on Marsh. Overnight accommodation and bag transfers were organised for us along with walking instructions and maps. Each place we stayed was clean and comfortable and the bag delivery was seamless. The countryside was beautiful and the villages lovely. The walks ranged from about 4-6... More

We took seven days to walk the way, going North was a good choice, it gets more rural more beautiful as you go and you can have more time for yourself if this is what you want, instead of falling into step with others. With day packs you should be ok for about 16 miles a day, accommodation is available... More

Just returned from hiking in the Cotswolds with two grandchildren (11 and 8). We arranged the trip through Andrew at Cotswolds Walks (info@cotswoldswalks.com) and it was wonderful. With Andrew's help we stayed in five small villages, each one just like a story book, and then hiked about 9-11 miles each day. We would stop and a village along the way... More

We really enjoyed every moment during 6 days of very well organized self guided tour in the heart of England. We relaxed and just followed every day schedule, walking in the absolutely beautiful nature, fields full with flowers, trees, passing by fairy tale villigies . We appreciate Andrew Guppy, the owner, for his excellent easy to use maps, nice hotels,... More

The way goes for miles and everyone has their favourite bits. I am bias as owning property in painswick, it runs right past the door so what a lovelY way to greet a bright and sunny day. Research where you want to go and what you expect to see and then follow one of the May routes.

Fantastic views.Lots of bluebells, anemones and wild garlic in the woods.Varied scenery and towards Bath, much less wooded and more open fields and tracks.Plenty of ups and downs but the views were worth it.

We walked from Cheltenham to Winchcombe - I'd recommend lightweight walking boots and waterproof jacket. We had lunch in Winchcombe & walked a different route back - about 10 miles in all.

I walked the entire route (almost twice) a couple of years ago by doing circular day trips. Beautiful scenery and some lovely pubs etc. too many favourite views to name but being Cheltonians we do still wander about the top of Cleeve Hill on a regular basis and when the little one gets a bit bigger I'll be taking her...

Did this over a series of yours and had some views that I will never forget. Broadway Tower was my favorite.
