Walking the Cotswold Way
The 100-mile, ancient droving trail of the Cotswold Way is a fantastic way to explore the beauty of this romantic countryside. Buy an Ordnance Survey Map and follow the route for an epic eight-day hike along the western escarpment, starting close to Shakespeare's Stratford and finishing in Bath via Stanton, Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham, Painswick, Dursley, Upton and Cold Ashton.
The walk includes fairly hilly terrain with an average of 14 miles to cover each day, so this is not for the faint-hearted or the unfit! The Cotswold Way website is full of useful tips on where to stay, where to eat etc. It is also possible to walk just a short section of it. One of the prettiest sections is between Chipping Campden and Snowshill (about five miles).
