Walked this route Bath to Chipping Campden in 8 days. Lovely hilly walks, panoramic far reaching views, ancient woodlands and quaint villages.

No matter what you choose to do in this region, the beauty and sights are unmatched. Old homes with thatch roofs and architecture dating centuries, the places in region are serene, peaceful, and tranquil. Could easily spend a month here.

Okay, so there are parts of it that take some effort, and the right clothing is essential, but the views make it worth the effort. The Cotswold Way is one of the best walkways in England and well worth doing.

The walk was harder than might be anticipated. Hikes and Bikes showed good attention to detail and gave us good itinaries/walking information. They followed up on a complaint we had (and secured a part refund from the accommodation). I'd definitely recommend them for walking in...More

Don't know where you heard that, it is for the most part a lovely walk through beautiful countryside. You pass through some picturesque villages, and have to cross a few roads here and there, but definitely no urban sprawl!

No, it's not part of Cotswolds Way. You would need a guide or at least maps which are very specific to the walk.
