SKU: 9781898481768 Category:


The Cotswolds is the quintessential heart of England, with its rich cultural history, medieval ‘wool’ churches and charming domestic architecture of stone, slate and thatch. The book offers three options for walking circuits at the centre of this wonderful area: the longest is a 94-mile (151-km) grand tour starting from Cheltenham, likely to take eight days. There are two shorter circuits that cater for walkers who want to spend six or four days. There are good rail links from London, Oxford and Birmingham and lots of welcoming pubs and B&Bs.

This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy the Heart of the Cotswolds:

detailed route description, plus summaries with distance, terrain and food/drink stops
