About The Trail

Strewn with countless pretty villages built by medieval merchants, the Cotswolds fulfils most people's idea of a ‘typical' English landscape. Within this magical region 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
