From here onward, begin to experience the increasingly rural section of the Cotswold Way. There will be fewer villages, allowing you to relax in the peace and tranquility of the gorgeous, iconic Cotswold countryside. Climb up to Charlton Kings Common, looking out for the distinctive rock pillar known as the “Devils Chimney”. Continue through quiet woodland, enchanting at any time of year, but especially the spring when wild flowers abound. Pass Coopers Hill, home to the famous annual cheese rolling festival, before arriving in the delightful town of Painswick, which grew prosperous from the cloth trade.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
