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.

Winchcombe: Warden's Way Loop & Sudeley Castle

I can't say enough nice things about Winchcombe.  Its a lovely Cotswolds town with an ancient and interesting history, its surrounded by stunning walks, and the town has made a huge effort to make itself a ramblers dream.  They have been running a campaign called Winchcombe Welcomes Walkers for years- check out http://www.winchcombewelcomeswalkers.com/ - and its produced some outstanding trails- The Isbourne Way and The Winchcombe Way.  Combined with the Warden's Way and the legendary Cotswold Way, and you are really spoiled for choice.

Anyways, I've decided to do a series around the area.  I've already done a few reconnaissance missions in the area, and started today with a truly idyllic walk up towards the Belas Knap long barrow, but cutting short and heading over to the Warden's Way to descend down into the valley whilst overlooking the lovely Sudeley Castle.  All shot with my rubbish camera phone... but I tell you the light was absolutely golden and the green was....well....as green as the Cotswold Hills.
