The Cotswold Way Companion

This book will help you to get the most out of walking the Cotswold Way – it focuses on the main points of interest and where to get the best views. If you hadn’t thought about stepping out on the Cotswold Way, hopefully you will after reading it. If you’ve decided to walk the trail, or just a section of it –  perhaps one of its Circular Walks – it will add considerably to your anticipation and enjoyment. If you’ve already walked on the trail, it will help you to remember the good times you had and, perhaps, whet your appetite to come back to see what you missed.

“A fabulous reference, full of a love for the Cotswolds and the gorgeous country walking the area offers … Proud and honoured to have played a small part in the book’s creation’. Mark Richards, outdoor writer and linescape artist.

A beautifully produced and very interesting companion to the Cotswold Way”, Coach House Books, Pershore
