From Chipping Campden, you enter classic Cotswold scenery as you traverse the open countryside with panoramic views and visit picture-perfect villages.
Leaving beautiful Chipping Campden, the route leads up onto Dover’s Hill, where magnificent views are afforded across the surrounding countryside. Continuing, you arrive at Broadway Tower, an 18th-century folly once home to the artist William Morris. From here, you descend to the picturesque linear village of Broadway before ascending to Shenberrow Hill and the remains of an Iron Age settlement. A final descent brings you down to the quaint village of Stanton and the end of your walk.
Tip van de auteur
Fantastic views over the Vale of Evesham are to be had from Dover’s Hill and Broadway Tower. Coupled with the quintessentially English Cotswold settlements of Broadway and Stanton, this walk is a delight and should be savoured.

The only sections of the walk today, where you might encounter traffic, are leaving Chipping Campden and Stanton as well as entering Winchcombe. Also be careful when crossing some of the roads, particularly at Fish Hill and the main road at Stanway. There are a few climbs and descents which are not particularly steep but which might be tricky during or after wet weather.
The Cotswold Way is well marked so navigation should be easy. Look out for the acorn signs which are the National Trail markers.

Boek aanbeveling door de auteur
Good comfortable boots or walking shoes are recommended. The ground can be quite soft and the paths are well used by walkers and riders. Whilst the terrain is not particularly difficult it can be muddy with some waterlogged stretches after heavy rain. Walking poles are an option if preferred. The British weather is changeable so waterproofs should also be carried just in case.
Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike/or if you have an older phone, it might be beneficial to bring a power bank as a backup.
There are some opportunities to buy food/water today but be sure to bring enough with you.
