Cotswold Way


Thousands of walkers each year take on the Cotswold Way challenge. 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 this trail. 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, there are old quarries containing rock features, such as the Devil's Chimney at Leckhampton, and of course there are all the classic Cotswold villages that you will pass; Stanton and Stanway, Broadway, and the final steep descent into Chipping Campden. 

There are several circular walks based on the trail, including one and two day walks and shorter, easy access walks for everyone to enjoy. So, you don’t necessarily have to do the trail in one go to enjoy the best it has to offer! 

Whether you are a day visitor looking for an enjoyable stroll, a local person seeking a healthy lifestyle, or a long-distance walker in search of challenge and achievement, the trail caters for people of all ages and walking abilities.
