Starting in the linear market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, you will head off into the countryside winding through quiet fields, over gurgling streams and through dotted woodland. The way is watched over by rabbits, birds, squirrels and hawks while the waterways are full of fish from rainbow trout to giant pike. Passing through quintessential Cotswold villages, the houses, gardens and general ambience have a calming effect, harking back to simpler times. The town of Stow-on-the-Wold is chocolate box perfect.


Stow-in-the-Wold is one of the most beautiful villages in the U.K., it has a wonderful farmers market on Thursday's - if you happen to pass through on that day, don't pack a lunch, pick up some locally sourced goodies fresh from the suppliers instead.

There are some road crossings, always be aware of traffic and be sure to use a pavement/sidewalk where possible, where it isn’t walk on the right-hand side of the road,

Some of the ground can be uneven, with steep descents and muddy/boggy ground. Ensure you have suitable footwear and step cautiously where needed, the mud is especially tricky in wet weather.

A note about farms and animals: Be very aware of closing gates behind you. Remember, animals on a farm are not pets and can be closer to a wild animal than a domestic pet - particularly for dogs. The main risk today is horses as the path often crosses fields with grazing horses.

When crossing the streams, be wary of slippery and loose stones, if you feel unsure bring walking poles for support, and you can always find a more suitable crossing a little up or downstream.

Points of Interest



 The highest town in the Cotswolds, it was originally built by the Normans. It was a prosperous town, being central to the sheep and wool trade and the large townhouses and striking streets remain. Home to an excellent farmers market, plenty of bookshops and some lovely little cafes, it is a town to get lost in and while away a few hours in tranquillity and comfort.
