The Cotswolds

Explore The Cotswolds

At Foot Trails we have a huge passion for walking in the Cotswolds. 

Alison and David Howell’s families have a long history to this area. Many of Alison’s family farm in the county. So with intimate local knowledge we’d love to show you everything that is wonderful about the Cotswolds.

We’ve designed walking trips and tours to take you off the beaten track so you can be sure to find villages and views that are quiet and little known.

Start today, browse your Cotswolds walking holiday options below.

Our Cotswolds Walking Holidays

At the southern tip of The Cotswolds is the city of Bath. Surrounded by wooded hills, the river meandering through, it’s a country city at heart. Walks around Bath then enjoy a driver tour over the southern plains to pick up an inn to inn hike. 7 to 9 nights stays.
Hike two aspects of the Cotswolds – the rolling wolds, classic market towns and villages characterised by centuries old sheep farming. And the Cotswolds Hills with stunning views as the landscape falls away into the River Severn valley. Perfect for 10 + nights.
Our classic inn to inn walking & hiking trail through the heart of The Cotswolds, perfect for 6 to 8 night stays. Walking from village to village on local paths, you’ll discover peaceful countryside and charming Cotswolds character away from the busy national trails.
When time is short enjoy a mini Cotswolds walking adventure crafted from our local knowledge. Customised to your taste; for example explore classic Cotswolds villages, walk the hills, or dwell in Roman history. Perfect for 4 night stays.
