Heart of the Cotswolds in Luxury:

We can offer any of our walking holidays on an upgrade or luxury basis by using the best hotels available in each place. As an example, please see the program for our classic 5 night route and note that we can build in transfers where you prefer to remain for more than one night in a particular place, or if you wish to stay in somewhere off the route. And of course we can offer a variety of accommodation eg luxury hotel one night, B & B the next, and so on. Please ask for prices.

Day 1:

Arrive Moreton-in-Marsh for overnight in the MANOR HOUSE

Day 2:

Moreton-in-Marsh to Bourton-on-the-Water – 12 miles (19km)

You are soon among typical Cotswold villages with a detour to see gorgeous Sezincote if you like. Then it is Stow-on-the-Wold, complete with village stocks and picturesque square, down to Lower and Upper Slaughter for overnight in the LORDS OF THE MANOR, or LOWER SLAUGHTER MANOR  or WASHBOURNE COURT.

Day 3:

Bourton-on-the-Water to Winchcombe – 13 miles (21km)

Follow the River Windrush to the untouched villages of Naunton, with its ancient dovecote and Guiting Power, noted for the impressive golden Norman arch to the church. Then up through woodland and fields before the dramatic descent into the ancient Saxon capital of Winchcombe, passing by Sudeley Castle, where Katherine Parr, Henry VIII’s sixth wife, is buried. Overnight in Winchcombe at the newly refurbished LION INN

Day 4:

Winchcombe to Broadway – 10.5 miles (17km)

This is a fabulous day’s walk. Follow the pilgrims’ route to Hailes Abbey (open to the public), then over the hills to Jacobean Stanway House, with its wonderful gatehouse, medieval tithe barn and extraordinary fountain. Pass through Stanton, so unspoilt that it has featured in many films, and arrive in the village of Broadway, one of the inspirations for the arts and Crafts Movement. Overnight BROADWAY HOTEL  or the DORMY HOUSE

Day 5:

Broadway to Moreton-in-Marsh – 12 miles (20 km)

Walk up to Broadway Tower, the 18th century folly, and then it is but a short step to Chipping Campden, the loveliest of all Cotswold villages, and once the wool centre of Europe. Pass the old butter market, visit the fine ‘wool’ church, and perhaps the world renowned silversmith. Continue through Broad Campden and Blockley and descend to Batsford, with its arboretum and falconry centre. Finally, a stroll across meadows to Moreton, for overnight at the MANOR HOUSE 

Day 6:

Departure after breakfast.
