Cotswold Way - 9 Days & 8 Nights

Enjoy the Cotswold Way, one of England's finest National Trails over seven days of walking. From Chipping Campden, the Cotswold Way explores the quintessential English countryside of the Cotswolds. A beautiful green landscape of rolling farmland, quiet woods, picturesque villages all steeped in history. As you follow the twisting trail south you pass through a succession of enchanting English villages, such as Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stanton. Each features typical Cotswold cottages, historic houses, welcoming country pubs and inviting shops. After 102 pleasant miles the Cotswold Way ends in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath, a truly delightful city.
