We were a party of 4 (5 if you include my cocker spaniel) who decided to spend Saturday Afternoon walking the Cotswolds Way starting at Winchcombe and finishing in Bishops Cleeve. Its about an 8 Mile hike with plenty of hills to climb and descend...More
Getting around in the Cotswolds
It is possible, to a degree, to explore the Cotswolds by public transportation. However, it may or may not be very efficient, depending upon where you start and where you want to go. The trains serve quite well the places...More
And take in the beautiful English Countryside :). Be aware of the weather though and try and time your walks so they you can visit the village pubs (usually closed 3-6pm) for a 'top-up' ;). While in general everything is reasonably signposted you can get...More
Everything was as I expected. Accommodation was good, was visually spectacular and good weather. Did not have a mobile phone which I found was a disadvantage at times. Got lost a few times but quickly found my place and rejoined the track. (track signs were...More
What an amazing way to get away and drop into another world. Beautiful. Inviting. Just enough challenges to make it worthy of your effort.

I hiked from Peterborough to Plymouth and my routes included sections of many different long distance routes as I crossed the country.
I only walked part of the Cotswold way and found it pleasant with good views and plenty of great hostelries along the way.
Parked our cars at the Horton and Chipping Sodbury village hall, picked up the trail at Horton primary school, heading north, lovely hot day, dogs had a good run, walked to Hawkesbury, found a nice place for lunch, had to stop at the local pub...More

Hi - sorry, I think you have the wrong person. We took the train from London to the Cotswolds and did a tour with Jim Gladwin (also on TripAdivsor). He was a delightful gentleman with much knowledge of the area and I'm sure would pick you up wherever you need, but I would recommend getting to the Cotswolds by train and saving some money!
Cotswold Way vs Dales Way - can you help me decide? (8 Replies)
We are traveling to England in September 2011 and want to do a 5-7 day walk. Our ideal would be to walk through beautiful farmlands and river valleys past quaint villages, ruined (or not) abbeys and castles. Also, enough local pubs and inns to stop for lunch some of the days and each night to sleep. Both the Cotswold Way and the Dales Way seem like they could fit the bill and we're having a difficult time deciding. I'm a little worried that the Cotswold Way might be too crowded or touristy...More

I've only dones parts of both, but I think it really comes down to which sort of scenery you think will appeal to you more. I would say the Dales, but if you've been in Scotland you may feel you've seen "enough" wild and bleak (in a majestic way) landscape, so that the gentler Cotswolds might be a better fit for the contrast. Before I went to the Cotswolds in June of 2010, I was almost put off by warnings of having to "queue up to get across the stiles." As it turned out I was amazed at...More
Walking Holiday in Cornwall---suggestions? (12 Replies)
Hello---I am in the early stages of planning a trip with friends with lots of walking in the UK. We are 3 couples, age 60-ish but fit. Our plan is to do a "sampler" of several of the British National Trails, 3 to 5 days on each of the Cotswold Way and the South West Coastal Trail, with a day here and there on the way between. This will be in May 2011 so I've lots of time to get it right---with your help! We will be travelling by train, so arriving in Penzance from Salisbury. I've read a...More

I have done two separate weeks of walks along the Cornish coast, but I was part of a guided group so I didn't have to worry about travel and logistics as you do. The last visit involved a number of walks on the Lizard. Anyway, to help you get started, it is about 29 miles from Penzance to Lizard. The first 4 miles to Mount St Michael is easy, mostly beach walking around the bay. The rest is the up and down cliff to cove walking; the next 15 miles to Mullion Cove is described as moderate,...More
Windrush Way or Warden's Way - which one? (0 Replies)
We are starting to plan our next trip and would like to walk either the Warden's or Windrush Way over two days in October. We are in our early sixties and have previously walked the Cotswold Way and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would like to do a shorter walk using Winchcombe as our base but since we prefer to only walk 6-10 mles per day will need to find an over night stop on either of these walks. It seems that on the Warden's Way the natural stopping point would be either Guiting...More
