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.
