Description

The Cotswolds Way is ideal for experienced walkers seeking peace and quiet and beautiful scenery.

In the midst of the green nature of the Cotswolds and on the steep slopes you can find your way back to yourself.

The trail offers excellent vantage points, picturesque villages and historic sites.

On the Cotswolds Way we are on our way into the past.

Passing numerous Iron Age hill forts, the route takes us from the Roman city of Bath to the historic market town of Chipping Campden.

Stone towers and castles are passed on the varied route through flower meadows and beech forests.

The towns along the way offer their own unique highlights such as the Broadway Tower in the town of the same name, which offers a wonderful view over the Cotswolds.

Especially impressive are the sections along the steep slopes: trekking rucksack (approx.

50 litres) with rain cover, sturdy and comfortable shoes, changeable shoes/sandals if necessary, weatherproof and durable clothing in multi-layer construction, changeable clothing, telescopic poles, sun and rain protection, provisions and drinking water, first aid kit, pocket knife, mobile phone, headlamp, maps, travel documents, toilet bag and travel towel, hand washing powder and clothesline
