The Cotswolds Uncovered
The Cotswold Way: 100 miles of glorious National Trail through thatched roof villages and rolling green countryside. Starting in the ancient market town of Chipping Camden, the route finishes in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath. Depending on how many miles you wish to hike each day, Macs Adventure offers different lengths of itineraries ranging from 8-12 days.
The Cotswold Trail: A loop hike through pretty villages, with shorter hiking days than the Cotswold Way. Choose from 4 day to 9 day routes to savour these quintessential ancient English pathways steeped in history.
The Cotswolds in Comfort: Our best-selling version of the Cotswold Trail, with more time to explore while staying in boutique hotels and first class inns. Appreciate delicious food, have more time for taking photos, and enjoy a slower paced adventure.
