Cotswolds Conservation Board is closely monitoring the situation with regards to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes close attention to the latest guidance from the WHO (World Health Organisation), as well as from UK authorities.
In light of Government guidance for the Covid-19 pandemic to avoid non-essential social contact, we have taken steps to cancel the Cotswold Wardens walks programme until further notice.
Please check the website for updates, but subject to any changing advice, it might be possible for you to try one of our self-guided walks which can be found here. Please remember to stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily. If you are unsure, please check the government guidelines here.
Discover the Cotswolds on a guided walk
Guided walks that meet your search criteria are listed below. A map showing the locations of the walks is displayed at the bottom of the page. Click on the walk title for more information.
Many of the walks listed are led by our Cotswold Voluntary Wardens who organise a year-round programme of walks that take place across the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including along the Cotswold Way. These walks vary in distance and difficulty, and offer an interesting and often entertaining way of discovering more about our countryside and landscape.
For guided walk updates and the latest news if a walk has been cancelled due to weather condition, please click on the Messages & Alerts tab below.
PLEASE NOTE With the very wet weather we have experienced recently some of these walks may be more strenuous from the muddy footpaths and take longer than originally scoped – updated 03/02/2020
Find a walk
EASY — length may vary, but terrain is mainly flat (level)
MODERATE — includes some hills and some rough ground
STRENUOUS — may be rough underfoot and ascents and descents may be steep
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. No need to book in advance, just turn up and enjoy!
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.
