  • Most accommodation in Britain is charged on a Per Person basis (rather than per room basis). The price you see here for this tour is the Price per Person.
  • If you request a Twin Room there are two single beds (usually 3 feet wide) in the room.
  • If you request a Double Room there is one bed in which two people usually sleep (usually 4 feet 6inches wide).
  • Both the Double and the the Twin room are sometimes available for Single Occupancy (one person in the room), usually with a supplement to compensate the provider who would normally have received payment from two people.
  • If the accommodation offers Single rooms (one bed of 3 feet wide), this will normally be priced higher than half of a double or twin room. Unless space is limited in the village or accommodation we usually avoid these as the rooms tend to be older and less space to move about.

Tour description

A single centre, self-guided walking tour in the cotswalds at Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire, England. Discover two circular walks from the town based at the start of Cotswald Way. Rail travel from London, taxi collection and return from nearest rail station, 3 nights en-suite hotel bed and breakfast accommodation, 2 days walking, walking notes, guide book and map.
The Cotswald Way is a 104 mile long recreational path stretching from Chipping Campden in the north of Gloucestershire to Bath. The path follows rights of way along the Cotswald escarpment, providing glorious views, seemingly at almost every step of the route. It also passes through picturesque Cotswald villages, such as Broadway and Painswick. Chipping Campden makes it an excellent choice for the discerning walker who enjoys relaxing a while, away from the troubles of every day life. We offer two circular walks based from the town.

You will make use of the notes we will provide you with and we arrange your en-suite hotel accommodation on a B&B basis. You will stay for 3 nights at the selected guesthouse accommodation (with private facilities) in the centre of Chipping Campden giving you two full days of walking. Just let us know the date you would like to arrive.

Advantages of a Single Centre Tour (staying in one place).

  • No need to unpack and pack your bags every day.
  • You are not walking because you have to get to the next place that is booked for that day.
  • If you feeling tired or not up-to walking - fine take the day off and enjoy where you are.
  • You have more time to build up a talking relationship with the guesthouse owners or people staying at the accommodation.
  • Handy if you would want to plan to meet up with somebody whilst visiting Britain.
  • Normally you are allocated a better room than single-night stay customers.

Grade

D

Grade Description

GRADE D: Between 6 - 9 miles (10 - 14kms) a day (the occasional day may be shorter or longer than these depending on location of suitable accommodation). Light Waterproof walking boots are desirable. A strong waterproof Jacket and overtrousers are recommended to protect you from rain and cold winds. No more than 1000 feet ascent and/or descent a day. Footpaths through farmland. You will start walking about 9:30am and finish at approx. 4pm.

On this tour there are some "short-cuts" to avoid the steepest of the hills (Dover's Hill and Broadway Tower) which would lower the grade to E.

These grades are for guidance only. For any grade, depending on weather conditions, it may at times be damp underfoot, so waterproof boots are preferable.

Hello Philip Another spectacular walk. We really enjoyed Wales. All accomodations were great especially the Druidstone--lovely place and I think we had the best room in the house--top floor--balcony sea view. We may come back and stay a few days. First day of walking not hard but WINDY and wet. Rest of walk was in beautiful sunny weather. We did find some distances a bit off on hike descriptions ie from Marloes to Druidstone is 15 not 11 but we made it and it made the hotel even more special!! We hope to find another walk perhaps again a coastal one in Devon / Dorset area You do a great job and I have certainly reccommended you to many friends.
