Bath & West Country Walks Walk the Landscape  

The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a walkers paradise with over 3000 miles of public footpaths through some of the best scenic landscapes that England has to offer.

This region of gentle rolling hills and honey-coloured stone villages, some 100 miles/160kms west of London, has some of the best walking with footpaths that are exceptionally well maintained combined with the nature of the landscape means that the walking is within the capabilities of almost everyone. 

The Cotswolds is well known for the idyllic beauty of its landscape for very good reason. The wolds are cut by small river valleys that form a magnificent backdrop to numerous delightful ancient sleepy villages and bustling market towns built from the distinctive honey-coloured limestone.

By only walking the Cotswold landscape will you discover ancient tracks of the drovers and salt ways, neolithic burial sites, iron age forts, ancient wool churches, deserted villages, ruins of a byegone age and ancient beech & oak woodlands not to mention hidden meandering river valleys.

Access to the countryside - the Cotswolds is renowned and a well used destination for walking through the open 'Wold' countryside. Public rights of way are well maintained and signposted and the area has one of the best kept 'rights of way' networks in the UK. The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty also contains a number of national and regional walking routes such as 'The Cotswolds Way Trail', 'Macmillan Way' and 'Oxfordshire Way'. Circular routes withy self-guided leaflets are also plentiful.
