About the trail

Strewn with countless pretty villages built by medieval merchants, the Cotswolds fulfils most people's idea of an idyllic 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.

Customer reviews from the Circular Walks in the Cotswolds

“This has been one of my favourite holidays.”
Mrs Malcharek, Canada
“The walk was demanding but enjoyable. Travelled as father and son. I am 77 and found it difficult in parts but we completed it and felt a sense of achievement. Would certainly travel with Contours again.”
Mr Neal, UK
“The Cotswolds are beautiful and being able to walk during the day and have my bags taken to my next night's accommodation was fabulous.”
Ms Birnie, Australia
“The organisation of the accommodation and preparation for our trip was excellent.”
