local Cotswold Tour Guide

The Cotswolds is perfect walking country. If you are visiting the UK from abroad, or perhaps you are taking a break from your busy life in the city. There are hundreds of miles of footpaths & trails, meaning your escape to the country provides a peaceful, relaxing & rewarding adventure. The Cotswolds has numerous trails, we have chosen our favourites.  We hope this means we have catered for all levels & tastes. Please do not worry, these are 'leisure walks', meaning that you do not need to be an athlete or a harden long distance walker. 

 Cotswolds Guided Walks are designed for those staying in a village or market town who would love to spend a short while with Lucy or Richard digging deeper into the local history. We are on hand to bring this beautiful region to life.
