Stopping off at Coaley Peak, we walked a small section of the Cotswold way. If you like your walks in the countryside to have simply stunning views of river valleys below, then this could be the walk for you!

Happy to have done but wouldn’t do again in the mud. There’s so much to see in the Cotswolds and if you are limited on time I would skip

Walked this route Bath to Chipping Campden in 8 days. Lovely hilly walks, panoramic far reaching views, ancient woodlands and quaint villages.

No matter what you choose to do in this region, the beauty and sights are unmatched. Old homes with thatch roofs and architecture dating centuries, the places in region are serene, peaceful, and tranquil. Could easily spend a month here.

The guide books and signposts are almost always enough. We did go astray maybe three times on our recent hike of the whole trail and used GPS on our phones to get back quickly.
