Welcome to the Cotswolds, the walking capital of England.
This area of gentle hills and honey-coloured stone villages has some of the best hiking in England not to mention English country gardens, historic manor houses, churches and village pubs to enjoy along the way. We are a local company, celebrating over 20 years of assistance, who pride ourselves on our friendly, personable service and an attention to detail that is second to none. Some call it concierge walking, we call it the perfect way to enjoy the freedom and unspoilt beauty offered by the ancient footpaths that define the Cotswolds and leave a lasting memory.
We specialise in the Cotswolds and that makes us different from our competitors as well our detailed route notes and maps in a handy sized booklet and the local back-up support if needed.
Covid-19 update: The main attraction of what we offer is to enjoy the freedom of walking in the English countryside and that has not been diminished by Covid-19. Clients will need to make meal reservations and book tickets for certain attractions in advance to avoid disappointment. Clients always have the option of packed lunches/picnics to lessen contact during lunch times if they do not wish to enjoy a traditional pub lunch along the way.
Joli J. – Best of the Cotswolds
“I can’t say enough great things about your team and about Cotswold Walks. Every day was a joy. We loved all our accommodations...each one had its own charm. I am so appreciative that it was always so easy to communicate with Andrew and staff and how Andrew went above and beyond to help me problem solve after my hiking boots failed me! Sending you all so much gratitude. I hope our paths cross again!”
Roger M. – Cotswold Line
“We have concluded our walks/ hikes - we enjoyed every step - the notes/directions were spot on - thank you for assisting us on a wonderful adventure - my wife is ready to do it again.”
Denise L. – Cotswold Way
“We had a wonderful time, the weather was almost perfect (only had to wear rain gear one day), and the accommodations were wonderful. The trip exceeded our expectations in every way in no small part to Cotswold Walks. We heard from several innkeepers/hosts that they love working with your company.”
Gabriel L. – Tailormade Tour
“My father and I had an absolutely stellar experience with Cotswold Walks! The communication was terrific throughout our booking process, and logistically, our experience getting from inn to inn and finding our luggage and rooms waiting for us was flawless. The maps and route notes were crystal clear and we didn't get lost once during our three days of walking. The routes chosen for us were delightful, jaw-droppingly picturesque, and had the perfect amount of adventure. We are already looking forward to booking with Cotswold Walks again in the near future and bringing more of the family with us! Thank you Cotswold Walks!”
