Cotswold Villages 5-Night Guided Walking Holiday-No Single Supplement
|Adventure Travel > Bath & West Country Walks > Cotswold Villages 5-Night Guided Walking Holiday-No Single Supplement|
Starts 7th July or 11th August.
Nowhere else in England does the work of nature and the work of man appear to be in greater harmony than the Cotswolds; the combination of idyllic stone villages and small towns set amidst a gentle, rolling countryside is without parallel and quintessentially 'English'. This walking holiday programme enables you to explore some of these beautiful villages and small towns as well as experience the typical rolling wold country. Many sheep still graze the wolds, which is all that remains of the wool industry, which once brought prosperity to this part of England. We will walk along the valleys of many of the meandering streams and rivers of the area and ponder on the beauty of the picturesque villages built out of oolitic limestone, which looks warm even on the dullest of days.
For your Cotswold walking holiday you will be staying at the 17th Century Hatherley Manor Hotel at Down Hatherley, Gloucester. This is a three-star hotel set in 37 acres of its own grounds, located 4 miles from Gloucester and 6 miles from Cheltenham. The hotel offers good food and comfort for a guided walking holiday in the beautiful Cotswold country.
