Up to the autumn colours

Back to Guided Walks page

Up over Doverow Hill to admire the autumn colours on the top in Standish Woods. Return via the Cotswold Way and a vineyard. First half of the walk is a steady climb. Refreshments available in Stonehouse.

Lovely views of the Malvern Hills from the summit of Doverow Hill, and down to the Stroud valley from the edge of Standish Woods. Route includes a few stiles.
