Honey-colour villages nestling between gentle, rounded hills.... the Cotswold clichés are true, but they don't tell the whole story. Get to know the area and you'll also find remote and wild places, as well as epic views from the Edge, the dramatic escarpment which marks its western boundary.
The Cotswolds have fantastic walking options all year round. There are quieter routes described for the busy summer months. Autumn sets the beech woods on fire; spring brings daffodils and bleating lambs. Winter sees bigger views through denuded trees and deliciously quiet trails.
This book describes a range of day walks, from gentle strolls to thigh-burning workouts, passing dramatic hillforts, barrows and stone circles and exploring Jurassic grasslands, beech woods and high ridges by turn. All of the walks are circular and are estimated to take from three to six hours.
Fourteen of the walks include parts of the Cotswold Way National Trail that snakes for 102 miles from Chipping Campden to Bath. If you walk all 14 you will have covered about two-thirds of the trail and certainly its finest sections.
