Home to 3000 miles of public footpaths and declared a designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty, when ‘holidaying’ in the Cotswolds, you can ramble your way through the tapestry’s of farmland, take on the knolls, discover ancient woodlands and even bask in wild flower meadows – just don't forget your boots.
A bright and breezy 4.7 mile walk that takes you from our village spot gently upwards and onwards to Painswick Beacon. Otherwise known as Kimsbury Hill, once you reach the top you get to explore an Iron Age fort, built between 500-100 BC. A gentle climb, this treasure takes two hours and soaks in the sights of the valley of Paradise (named so, by King Charles 1st), oodles of parkland, and a farm or two.
Laurie Lees Slad Valley Walk
A gentle stroll through the countryside of Slad (the back drop to the one and only Cider with Rosie) this little escapade is right on our doorstep. Covering a distance of 4 miles it links from Bulls Cross to around the village of Slad and back following country lanes, quiet fields and looking over valley and woodland. And just in case you're feeling a little parched along the way, you can take a quick stop just off route at the quintessentially English pub, The Wool Pack.
The Cotswolds Way National Trail
Not for the faint hearted, the Cotswolds Way is a 102 mile route running between the pretty market town of Chipping Campden and the city of Bath, following the famed escarpment known as the Cotswolds Edge. Capturing some of the best views that our area has to offer you can decide to take it on as a hole in one or break it up with some shorter circular routes available using this link.
