The 102 miles long Cotswold Way follows the escarpment running along the western edge of the Cotswolds. On the walk one gets great views of the Severn Valley while walking amidst beech woods and open pasture. It passes through picturesque villages built in local limestone. The Cotswold are a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' so you can be sure the scenery on this long distance walk is always going to be pleasing to the eye.
