The Cotswold Way links geography, geology and history together creating as memorable a few days walking as you will get anywhere in the UK. For instance, today's section took us from Seven Springs, once the reputed source of the Thames, to Salterley Grange. The mist hung across the escarpment obscuring the magnificent view of Cheltenham below and the distinctive shape... More

If you want to explore the beauty of the Cotswolds then there is no better way to achieve this than to walk the Cotswold Way and experience the wonderful countryside and Cotswold village along the way. A must when visiting this area - you won't regret it.

Our most enjoyable hours in the Cotswolds was our hike from Stow to Bourton. What a gem of a walk! We plan to return to walk the full length of the Cotswold Way hopefully within the next year. We saw only a few others and recommend doing this walk in the off-season. Stunning.

As a Cotswold Voluntary Warden, I help maintain the trail. It follows the length of the Cotswold Hills through beautiful scenery and is very well marked.

I just finished five days of walking on the Cotswold Way (Chipping Campden to Dursley). I got a lot of help from this forum in planning the trip, so I thought I'd give back some observations from the walk: 1. I am a trekking pole convert now. This was the first time using them and they helped tremendously with the... More

My sister and I used Cotswolds Walks (Andrew Guppy) to plan our route and book our accommodations. Everything went like clockwork. Upon arrival, at the end of the day, our bags were in our rooms. The accommodations were either small inns or pubs (I like the pubs the best). Our route took us from Cheltenham, Winchcome, Chipping Camden, Broadway and... More

We thought we would be walks through quaint Cotswold villages and while we did walk through some, most of the walk was through paddocks and countryside. Although we had a travel guide book with maps and a map as well, it found the walk poorly signposted often and got lost a few times. We were lucky with the the weather... More
