The Cotswold Way is a 112 mile trail from Chipping Camden to the steps of the Bath Abbey. It can be explored on foot, horseback or car. Whether it is just one section or the entire trail, it goes through small villages, pubs and beautiful panoramas.

What’s the best time of year to go in your opinion?

Spring through Fall is the best time to enjoy the outdoor activities, however a Manor House getaway is a great time to spend the Winter months.

Anything else to add?

Only a short train ride away from Paddington Station, The Cotswolds is a great option for a city escape to add for a trip to London. Staying between 3 and 10 nights would be ideal to take full advantage of what the region has to offer.
