Stow-on-the-Wold Circular, Cotswolds

Returning to Cotswolds to go walking when we have the chance is always a pleasure. We enjoyed our last circular walk in the Cotswolds from Castle Combe immensely so when we saw we were forecasted good weather at the weekend a couple of weeks ago, Harriet & I devised another of our improvised circular walks and headed … Continue reading Stow-on-the-Wold Circular, Cotswolds

Just Visiting: Blockley, Cotswolds

We recently went away for a weekend in the Cotswolds for Harriet's birthday. We ended up staying in the beautiful village of Blockley which provided a very central location for the walking we wanted to do and the places we wanted to visit. Nestled on the side of a hill, Blockley is only a few … Continue reading Just Visiting: Blockley, Cotswolds

The town itself is quaint and very pretty, but … Continue reading Just Visiting: Minchinhampton, Cotswolds

Greenspace Talking: Holywell Farm

Holywell is a small settlement near Wotton-Under-Edge, a Cotswold town about 10 miles from where we live. We recently walked some of the Cotswold Way which passes through W-u-E and Holywell.

On the Horizon: Wotton-under-Edge to Old Sodbury, Cotswold Way

We have decided to begin walking our most local National Trail this weekend, the Cotswold Way which runs from Bath to Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire. The entire route from start to finish is 106 miles. Over the course of what likely to be a long time, we aim to complete the entire trail. We will be … Continue reading On the Horizon: Wotton-under-Edge to Old Sodbury, Cotswold Way

Castle Combe Circular, Cotswolds

Castle Combe is a small village in Wiltshire, England, on the edge of the Cotswolds AONB. Some may know it as home to the Castle Combe Circuit, a car and bike racetrack, but in sharp contrast to the high-octane activities undertaken nearby, the village itself is beautiful. Many of its buildings are hundreds of years old, … Continue reading Castle Combe Circular, Cotswolds
