Owner description: 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.
Reviewed November 13, 2017

The walk from Winchcombe To Belas Knap is quite a tough climb but on mostly good paths so most able bodied folk coud do it even if they are not used to walking - just take it steady. It is an interesting burial site although most of the extensive views are hidden by nearby trees.

What a lovely walk through glorious countryside with spectacular views down into the misty autumn valley.
The signposting was really good, although i think the distances were greater than they said........well my legs thought so. From Winchcombe, with an elderly and quite slow Pointer it took us two hours for the round trip
The burial moubd is fascinating....restored and very atmospheric. There are entrances you can stoop down and go under, and enough history about burials and human sacrifice to make you glad its not still in use.
The countryside, and autumn colours were beautiful.
and then we went to the
White Hart for lunch.

Interesting monument to visit if you are walking in the area but not worth a special visit/detour for.
Information panel provides the history of the site.

We came here on a round walk and we were most impressed. For a start the walk took us through lovely countryside and there wasn't a soul in sight. We were amazed how well preserved the barrow is and there are information plaques for those like us who knew nothing about Belas Knap before hand. I would definitely recommend coming here
