Summer walking in the Cotswolds August 2017

22 08 2017

Winchcombe is a town that has Walkers Welcome status. (Winchcombe Welcomes Walkers website is here:  https://www.winchcombewelcomeswalkers.com/ )

The organisation has produced 22 walks that are easily accessible from the town.  They range from very short to a long day.  The town is on the Cotswold Way and has easy access to many other ‘ways’ l ike the Wardens Way, the Windrush Way, the Isbourne Way and the Winchcombe Way.

Last we week we did Walk 22, (https://www.winchcombewelcomeswalkers.com/wp-content/uploads/Walk-22-Sudeley-Valley.pdf)  an 8 mile walk, taking in several of these routes and enjoyed some spectacular views including the low flying training aircraft that fly low over the area most days, and two spectacular kites. These birds are seen ever closer to Winchcombe year by year.

Although we have lived here for 20 years, I never fail to be amazed by the beauty on our doorstep and on yours if you stay in the Barn Reborn!
