Active Experiences

From the adrenaline junkier to the rambler, the Cotswolds has it all

If you’re looking for an adventure on your doorstep, then the Cotswolds is your new home. Known for its picturesque countryside, the Cotswolds is suitable for the whole family to explore.

You can find yourself on the Cotswold Way, a long-distance walking trail that runs between the market town of Chipping Campden in the north to the city of Bath in the south. This 102-mile trail is popular with dog walkers, as you can pick it up at any point and discover beautiful landscapes with nearby pubs that are often dog-friendly.

Alternatively, the area has a couple key water sport locations, bicycle tracks, and well-known off-roading areas. There’s even the odd, quirky dog sled activity! Simply put, whether you want to explore on foot, on track, or by water, the Cotswolds has it all.

Have a look at our favourite experiences for the active traveller below, and breathe the fresh air.
