Route Outline

This walk includes some attractive villages and glorious Cotswold countryside. Starting from the busy village of Bourton-on-the-Water it is probably advisable to avoid busy times of the year if you wish to enjoy the route in relative peace. The route was researched in winter and few other walkers were seen and parking was not problematic. One point worth noting is that the opportunities for refreshments on the route are limited once Bourton-on-the-Water has been left behind with only a pub in Naunton before the Slaughters are reached.
