The Cotswold Trail - 6 Days & 5 Nights

  • Challenging long hikes through the beautiful English countryside
  • Treasure the picturesque villages, gardens and historic sites
  • Atmospheric local market towns with cobbled paths and quirky shops
  • Warm welcoming handpicked accommodation and cheery pubs for pints!
  • Panoramic English countryside views from the historic Broadway Tower
Over four days intense hiking you will discover the Cotswold’s pretty villages and quintessential countryside. As you stride along the full length of the Cotswold Trail starting in Moreton-in-the-Marsh, you pass thatched, honey-colored stone cottages and see historic stately homes. As you approach half-way, in Burton-on-the-Water with its famous low-arched bridges, you can enjoy a well deserved pint in the local pub! It’s then to the view point at the striking Broadway Tower, and the ancient footpaths will bring you into the traditional village of Chipping Campden before completing the loop. This whirl wind hike will challenge and keep you interested as you explore this mesmerizing part of England.
