How Difficult is the Cotswold Way

Matthew Usherwood

The Cotswold Way National Trail is 102 miles (163km) in total and runs from Chipping Campden to Bath.

The Trail itself is probably one of the easier National Trails, and certainly, the one with the most creature comforts on the route. Expect a LOT of fancy pubs, nice cafes and tea shops, and some very pretty towns and villages on route.

Since the path itself mostly runs through agricultural land its not really ‘remote’.

The route’s highest point is Cleeve Hill which is located on Cheltenham#s North-Eastern edge. The Views from the top are great, considering you are only about 330 meters above sea level. However, rest assured you will get great views over the Cotswold Hills.

Bringing me nicely to my next point. The Cotswold Way is a hilly walk, but not a mountainous walk. Expect some gentle ups and down’s but really nothing much It offers a great deal of interest, and some really great accommodation options if your budget stretches to B&B and hotel.
