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 from the walk date.

Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate dogs on our guided walks (except assistance dogs), there are though a number of walking with dog groups around the Cotswolds you can meet up with.

There are a number of Walking Festivals that take place across the Cotswolds throughout the year that include guided walks, Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival (May);  Wotton Walking Festival (June); Bathscape Walking Festival (September); Stonehouse Walking Festival (September); Dursley Walking Festival (October).

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

Please note:

Unless otherwise indicated, all walks by the Voluntary Wardens are free of charge however donations are very much appreciated and are usually collected at the end of the walk.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Sorry but only assistance dogs are allowed on walks. Warden Leaders will take all reasonable care and precautions but each walker is ultimately responsible for their own safety, and for determining their capability to complete the chosen walk.

It is also advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
