Welcome to The Cotswolds!

I love the English Cotswolds and think everyone should visit this beautiful place at least once in their lifetime. Having lived all over the world and traveled as much as possible, I still think that this little part of England is one of the world's greatest treasures. This site is dedicated to helping spread the word and encourage sustainable travel to the Cotswolds.

A stroll around Cleeve and Postlip Warren

Even though I go walking here all the time, I just never get tired of it.  This place, Cleeve Common, is just so dramatic and seems to offer a completely new set of views every time I go.  This is a walk down the Cotswold Way from the Cleeve Golf Club, joining up with the Isbourne Way, and then coming straight up over Cleeve Hill, a 300m ascent at an incredibly steep grade.  The pool shown is man made- it was once a "sheep dip" used to clean sheep before they were shorn.  If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend this walk!

Loving the blog posts and the photos!

Can one park at Cleeve Golf Club without being a member?

I live over in Blunsdon near Swindon and we have popped over to walk Cleeve Common but do find parking a problem (not much of it or I am looking in the wrong places?)

There is parking right nearby. Drive as though you are going to the golf club, go past the golf club on your right, and through a wooden gate. Turn immediately left and the track will curve right into a car park in the old, disused quarry. This parking is free and is meant for ramblers. I've never had trouble getting a space there. Good luck!
