Although it was a showery day we had a lovely walk up to Painswick Beacon. The views, even on a dull day, were impressive and worth the walk. Do watch out for rogue golf balls, as the walk goes through the golf course.

Great view from the beacon and well worth the the walk. Best if you start from the ramblers car park and go from there. Easy to find and a good experience.

Very lucky to visit the Beacon on a lovely sunny day affording fantastic 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit.

Quaint setting through woods and over a really quirky golf course. Views stunning. You can see for miles and free parking available. For a 1 to hour stroll it is ideal and idyllic.

A short walk from the car park, on a clear day, we were able to see the Severn bridge by Bristol 30 miles away. A beautiful view in all directions.
