    Take in the highlights of walking in the Cotswolds on this 5 day itinerary.

    The Cotswold landscape is an entrancing mixture of parkland, cultivated fields with dry-stone walls of Jurassic limestone and patches of unspoilt woodland. With almost all of the cottages, farmhouses and villages passed on the trail made of stone, the scenery blends with the structures creating a delightful fusion of natural and manmade beauty. Staying in a selection of handpicked B&B’s and guesthouses whose hosts welcome you each evening. This is a perfect introduction to walking in the English countryside.
