Cotswold Way - 8 Days & 7 Nights

Walk the Cotswold Way, one of England's finest National Trails, over six walking days. An average of 17 miles per day suits walkers looking for a more challenging itinerary. The Cotswold Way explores the quintessential English landscapes and villages of the Cotswolds. The Cotswold Way begins in Chipping Campden, home of the annual Olimpick Games. Heading south you pass through a succession of enchanting English villages, featuring typical Cotswold cottages, historic houses, welcoming country pubs and inviting shops. Broadway, Stanton and Winchcombe are just a few of the honeyed villages that you will enjoy before you reach the end of the Cotswold Way in Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
