Even though it is a bit of hike to get to, this ancient burial mound is worth the effort, especially towards dusk when the site becomes magical in appearance.

We incorporated Belas Knap into a circular 10km walk from Winchcombe and it made the perfect half-way destination. The buriel mound is very impressive to see.

My husband and I decided to walk from Winchcombe along the Cotswold Way to see Belas Knap. The first mistake we made was the timing. Like mad dogs, we did it in the midday heat during the recent hot weather. Of course it is mostly...More

Amazing views. A bit of a walk for lazy people like myself, but so worth it. Interesting place, the haunted history of it that I read up before I went was intriguing to me. The information sign was interesting to read.

A pleasant (if steep) walk up from the Winchcombe side of the hill takes you along a ridge with stunning views (including Sudeley Castle as part of the vista) to Belas Knapp. A heavily restored long barrow which is roughly contemporary with West Kennett near...More

Let's probably guess that the majority of people aren't neolithic history buffs - in which case once you get to Belas Knap you may find yourself slightly underwhelmed if you're expecting something super impressive. However, if you are in the area and enjoy a good...More

A short and delightful walk from Winchcombe. Especially recommended on a crisp winters day ! Fascinating facts available at the tomb from the sign.

Steep walk all the way up the the site but well with it, lovely walks in several directions to explore. Can even walk across to Cleeve common if you fancy a long walk, once there the views are amazing.
