The Cotswold Way

Hikes – The cotswold way

It’s Time For A Walk In The Cotswolds

The Cotswold Hills is a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ (AONB) and it goes without saying that when you are walking The Cotswold Way and you saunter through village after village of honey-coloured limestone cottages, set in a landscape that is the perfection of harmony between man and nature, you can’t help but feel in awe at the true beauty of it all.

I first walked the Cotswold Way in March, however, it was still rather cold, wet and very muddy.  I would suggest walking any time from late April to early October to benefit from better weather and more opportunities to explore the attractions of what this trail has to offer.  Many places such as Towers, Monuments, Churches etc will be closed during “out of season” times.
