Overview

Join us as we finish our exploration of the Cotswolds by walking the southern half of the 102 mile long national trail called the Cotswold Way. (We hiked the northern half in the fall of 2020!) The trail has incomparable views across the Severn Vale to the Malvern Hills and takes us through varied scenery: limestone grasslands crossed by drystone walls, beech woodlands, and stone-built villages with ancient churches. The gentle Cotswolds countryside, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ONB), is threaded with more than 3,000 miles of pleasant walking routes that enables us to appreciate these upland tracts at their best. A gently undulating area of limestone uplands, the Cotswolds are among England's best preserved rural districts, and the quiet but lovely grays and ambers of the stone buildings here are truly unsurpassed. We fly into London's Heathrow airport and transfer by private charter bus to our base, for the first part of the trip, in Painswick. Enroute we make a stop Broughton Castle for a tour and lunch. We'll travel each day by private charter bus as we explore the area and walk along the Cotswold Way. During the second half of the trip our bases will be the towns of Wick, Tetbury and Bath. Similar to our more northern base of Painswick, we'll have a private coach at our disposal to take us to and from our daily walks on the Cotswold Way. During the course of our trip we'll have the opportunity to walk along the northern half of the trail, as well as visiting a number of cultural sites and quaint villages.
