The Cotswolds Way

Walk among the wildflowers at Cleeve Common, the Neolithic burial chamber at Belas Knap or the pretty market towns of Winchcombe and Snowshill.

The Diamond Way

For a slightly shorter route, start from Eversham and follow signs for the ‘Blossom Trail’. One of the most beautiful Cotswolds walking routes for the abundance of flowers.

Cleeve Hill Circular Walk

Start at Cleeve Hill Golf Club and make your way over streams, through forests and fields of blooming flowers on the six and a half-mile circular walk.

Leckhampton Loop

Starting, and finishing, at the Seven Springs pub, this afternoon walk takes in ancient woodland, a Victorian quarry and an Iron Age hillfort built between 500 and 100 BC.

Windrush Way

For one of the more challenging day hikes in the Cotswolds, try the 14 miles Windrush Way that links the Cotswolds Way to the Oxfordshire Way.

Cotswolds Walking Tours

Cotswolds walks can also be organised as a day trip from London, but it’s much nicer to stay awhile to enjoy the serenity. Check out the Cotswolds official website for more information.
