Walking the Ways

Back to Guided Walks page

This circular walk from Bourton-on-the-Water takes the Windrush Way west through sheltered valleys and pleasant woodland to the village of Naunton. The return on the Wardens Way provides great views from the hills and the Slaughter villages. Bring a packed lunch.

Good footwear essential as the route includes some hills and the river valleys may be muddy. Car parking at Station Road and Rissington Road car parks.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
