Guided Walks


Warden Guided Walks

Our Cotswold Voluntary Wardens offer guided walks across the Cotswolds National Landscape and look forward to meeting you.

Many walks do not require booking just turn up on the day at the advertised meeting location.   For the few walks that do require advance booking, these will offer a booking form when you click on the walk title for more details. Booked walks have a maximum number of walkers; when the limit is reached it will not be possible to book a place on the walk. The booking window opens three weeks before the walk date and closes two days before the walk date. You will receive an email confirming a successful booking and instructions on how to cancel your booking if you are subsequently unable to attend. Your details will be retained for 21 days.

Donations are very welcome and help us to support the guided walks and to take care of the countryside through a range of conservation, access and heritage projects.
