If you want to really explore the beauty of the Cotswolds, the best way to do it is on foot. Walkers are spoilt for choice here, with relaxing rambles and longer routes taking in picture-perfect villages, lush green landscapes, historic landmarks and local wildlife. We pick the best walks in the area, with welcoming pubs to relax in before or after your trip!

Bourton-on-the-Hill and Batsford Arboretum

Start your walk on the Heart of England Way, where you’ll pass the dazzling Sezincote House – a dramatic Indian palace-inspired country house, well worth a visit if you’re there during visiting hours. From here make your way north through the pretty market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, then across open fields (wellies may be required here!) towards Batsford House. Do try and make time to explore the house and its beautiful arboretum if you can. Rejoin the Heart of England Way and make your return back to Bourton-on-the-Hill and the award-winning Horse and Groom.
