Walking the Cotswolds


Visitors to The Cotswolds will eventually find themselves on the Cotswolds Way one way or another. It spans 100 miles from start to finish but you don’t have to walk it all. The joy of it is that you can cover bits of it at different times of the year and it will always fill you with wonder for the beauty of the British countryside. There are some flat sections and some tougher sections so you can pick a route to suit your needs. You will find an Ordinance Survey map for your use at Ratty’s Retreat. You can pick up one end of the Cotswold Way at Chipping Campden which is a lovely historic market town just a mile and a half down the road from Ratty’s Retreat.
You will also find a vast number of other suggested walking routes amongst the useful information kept at the cottage that should suit everyone. A small coolbag and a large umbrella are also supplied for you to borrow. You have to bring your own walking boots or wellies though!
