Cotswold stone varies in colour, depending on the area, ranging from light grey through to pale cream, honey and light brown, and this natural variation in the limestone is what helps towns and villages such as Castle Combe, Bourton-on-the-Water, Burford, Arlington, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Snowshill and Stanton, all featured in walks in this guide, blend so attractively into the natural surroundings.
Take a journey on 28 beautiful walks across the Cotswolds with the OS Pathfinder Guidebooks, graded by length and ranging from 3 to 10 miles.
All walks in this book include written directions, an extract of the OS map for the area and some background on the history and natural environment you see. Most of the walks avoid busy roads and are designed to help you make the most of a holiday or day trips. There are notes on parking, pubs, and things to see en route.
The routes range from extended strolls to longer hikes, something for all levels! Each walk includes a detailed description, an OS map, GPS waypoints and notes of key features and things to see.
This is one of a series of books with great walking routes covering the most popular and scenic areas of Britain. Printed with weather-resistant covers featuring durable rounded corners, they are the perfect companion for country walking throughout Britain.
