Walking The Cotswold Way in 6 Days

Walking the Cotswold Way in 6 days

For travelers wanting to experience authentic England, as romanticised in films, books and movies,  look no further than the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds has everything to make your trip magical, from historic castles, houses and abbeys, and all set in green rolling hills. The Cotswold Way National Trail will certainly be appealing to walkers who are seeking an easy introduction to Long Distance Walking. It’s a fantastic instruction to the English countryside as the gradient is forgiving, and often so is the weather. 

The Cotswolds have been deservingly awarded the status of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Along the way you can expect to enjoy a number of small, but wonderfully presented villages, hamlets and towns, such as Chipping Campden, Stanton and of course Bath at the end. 

The route is a delight from start to finish, and will surely leave a very English imprint on you.

To help you enjoy this wonderful route, we have put together this Cotswold Way 6 Days itinerary for you to self-book your walking holiday. Click any of the overnight stops below to quickly scroll down to that section on the page.
