We can provide a guide when needed, or create a completely self-guided itinerary. For tailor made walking or cycling tours, we have many years of experience and know the footpaths and back roads of the area like no other.

There are many, many possible themes that you might like to explore:

  • History – for example, an itinerary tracing the course of Cotswold history and English history, in particular the medieval Cotswold wool trade.

  • Traditional crafts – drystone walling, for example. Cotswold limestone gives the area its distictive golden hue.

  • Literature and music – the Cotswolds are associated with many great English musicians and writers among them: Vaughan Williams, Ivor Gurney, Laurie Lee (‘Cider with Rosie’), J.B. Priestley.

  • Events – from the cheese-rolling on Cooper’s Hill to the Cheltenham Literature festival.

  • Steam trains and industrial heritage – the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway runs from Cheltenham Racecourse to Toddington on a scenic route which takes approximately an hour and a half round trip. Walk alongside the canals with their charming bridges.

  • Cotswold Gardens – some of Europe’s finest gardens are open to the public here.

  • Treasure Trails – especially if you need to entertain children.

For a walk we can provide all you need – clear route notes and maps. Any distance, any theme, any duration. We will have a walk or walks to suit you, for we are the Cotswold walking company par excellence.
