Self-Guided Walks

Walking routes to discover our wide skies and dramatic views

Walking is the best way to see the Cotswolds. Take a relaxing stroll to walk off that tasty pub lunch or stride out on one of our long-distance trails or paths that across the Cotswolds AONB. The choice is yours.

To find the perfect walk for you, scroll down to use our ‘walk location‘ search tool, and to see the interactive walking map. If any of the directions on the walks need updating, please do let us know by emailing:

Enjoy your walk and don’t forget to share any photos you might take on social media! #CotswoldsAONB

If you are using public transport to get to and from your walk, please check timetables online before traveling.

***COVID-19 Update***

Under normal circumstances, we would be encouraging everybody to get outside, get some fresh air, get walking, start exploring. But these aren’t normal circumstances. At the moment, we would urge everyone to do the opposite: stay at home, don’t drive unless it’s essential, do your part. There have been a number of reports locally and nationally of people driving to enjoy beauty spots or to access their exercise, or gathering in groups in parks or areas of countryside. Please don’t do this. Please stay in your local area to get out in the fresh air, or to go for a walk/run/cycle. Please be responsible.
Stay home. Protect the NHS. Save lives. 

If you’d like more information about green spaces, please see the official government advice here.
