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 walk was harder than might be anticipated. Hikes and Bikes showed good attention to detail and gave us good itinaries/walking information. They followed up on a complaint we had (and secured a part refund from the accommodation). I'd definitely recommend them for walking in...More

Probably the best signposted walk I have ever been on. Tougher than most people think so do not underestimate the amount of ups and downs. Amazing views as far as the Welsh Mountains and a must for those interested in history as long barrows and...More

You can get the train to Bath Spa station and then walk the Cotswold Way from south to north. This means you get the prevailing wind behind you. At the north end, there is no station in Chipping Campden, but you can get the... More
