This guidebook describes the Cotswold Way National Trail through the scenic Cotswold route between Chipping Campden and Bath.

This edition of The Cotswold Way National Trail guidebook has been produced to coincide with the elevation of the route to National Trail status in May 2007.

Despite the fact that this much-loved long distance trail has been in existence for more than 35 years, it is Britain's newest National Trail, and as such it benefits from fresh waymarking and signing, realigned or improved footpaths, and the provision of numerous kissing gates in place of stiles.

What remains unchanged is the matchless series of landscapes and idyllic villages that help make the Cotswolds one of Britain's finest regions, and ensure that the 102 mile (164km) journey between Chipping Campden and Bath is a joy from start to finish.

  • Seasons
    Can be walked all year round, accommodation scarce during Cheltenham Festival (March) and Badminton horse trials (late April/May).
