Walking

The opportunities to walk are many. Our guests can stroll to Stow-on-the-Wold within 10 minutes; can choose a local walk taking an hour or so; or, for the more the serious walkers, select part of a National Trail.


Four different walks from the cottage door!

With the abundance of footpaths we have put together four different walks of between 4 and 6 miles all starting and finishing at the cottages. They include footpaths, country lanes and, for two of the walks, a little bit of Stow-on-the-Wold! On three of the walks there are village pubs en route and all four walks enjoy the great scenery of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

All local footpaths and locally reachable national trails are clearly marked on the Magic Maps on the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Beauty website http://www.cotswoldsaonb.org.uk/landscape-and-environment/map/.
