Walking the Cotswolds Way

May 02-12, 2020

11 days | England | alumni UBC Travel Club

The Cotswolds is one of the prettiest pockets of rural England with rolling hills, sweeping meadows, bucolic villages, and stately homes. The glorious honey-coloured towns and villages are almost unbelievably pretty. This is picture-postcard England at its most enchanting.

And what better way to experience this than on foot at a comfortable pace. This nine-day walk follows the Cotswolds Way, 100 miles of magical walking with long distance views from the Cotswold escarpment, and journeys through picturesque villages and past famous ancient sites.

The trip is escorted by Judy Rogers and our English walking guide, but you are free to walk at your own pace in your own time. You will have a pack of easy to read maps and instructions, complete with directions to guide you on the well-marked paths and tracks. And if you need picking up, then, no problem, help is at hand. A support vehicle is with you at all times. The distance of your day’s walk is up to you!

On some days we take our support vans between our hotels and beginning and end of the day’s walk. This means we can stay in each of our lovely village inns for two nights and walk the most beautiful sections of the Cotswolds Way. Evenings are an opportunity to discover delicious cuisine in village gastropubs and 17th century cider houses with plenty of local highlights (think Old Spot pork, trout, and asparagus not to mention double and single Gloucester cheese!)

Discover the joys of a country walk in one of the prettiest places in the world!
