Cotswold Way


The Cotswold Way is a 102-mile long National Trail, running between the market town of Chipping Campden and the city of Bath. 

The breathtaking, long-distance views are one of the many things that attract people to the trail, with thousands of walkers each year taking on the challenge. Look towards Wales and you will see the Severn Estuary and Severn bridges, the Forest of Dean, the Welsh hills of Monmouthshire and the Black Mountains on the Welsh border. 

Further north on the path, above Cheltenham, are old quarries containing rock features such as the Devil's Chimney at Leckhampton, and, of course, classic Cotswold villages such as Stanton, Stanway and Broadway.

There are several circular walks based around the trail, including one and two-day walks, and shorter, easy-access routes for everyone to enjoy. You don’t necessarily have to do the trail in one go to appreciate all it has to offer.

Whether you're a day visitor after an relaxing stroll, a local seeking a healthy lifestyle, or a long-distance walker in search of challenge and achievement, the trail caters for all ages and walking abilities.
