About the trail

Strewn with countless pretty villages built by medieval merchants, the Cotswolds fulfils most people's idea of a ‘typical' English landscape. While walking in the Cotswolds, you will find neat fields, rolling green hills, ancient woodland and clear streams, combined with simple stone cottages and historical landmarks to create a truly unique picture of timeless beauty. Our selection of circular trails explores the scenery, settlements and stories that make the Cotswolds such a wonderfully special place to discover on foot.

 

Dog friendly tours available

Dogs are welcome on select routes along this trail. Look for the pawprint icon when choosing your holiday.

Customer reviews from the Circular Walks in the Cotswolds

“It was very helpful to have the accommodation near the track at all the places we stayed in now. We will recommend to others. Everything went well. We will definitely recommend your company and tours to others. If we come back to England, we would like another walking holiday. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food on our route.”
