Hello all - this year I will be mainly walking on the Cotswold Way....in June. Having had several LDP's in blistering sunshine without a drop of rain, I'm fearing biblical proportions of the wet stuff - time will tell.

I plan to walk from Chipping Camden to Bath in 7 days, taking in many splendiferous views - not all farmland along the way. There is much pre-history and a good smattering of other stuff as well. Maybe I'll have a few beers along the way.

Anyone got any tips for favoured accomodation along the way?

Hi Pete
We are also doing the cotswold way starting 11th june.
Not sure about accommodation aswell :? so i just ordered a book called THE COTSWOLD WAY by bob Hayne, its got good reviews and covers natural history, places to see, lunch stops and suggested distance stops. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow so i can start booking accommodation :)

Oops - just looked at the diary and it's going to be in May - good job I'd not booked anything yet.

I think I'll be staying in California and Pennsylvania on two of the nights :wink:

I've had to change Alderley to Wotton under Edge as the B&B at Hillesley Mill no longer takes guests. I'm finding the southern end a bit trickier to space out for accommodation, but I'm nearly there.

Right then - I'm up early packing my stuff, a round of golf and then drive down to Evesham to stopover and visit places like Hidcot before starting the walk on Monday. Seven dry days.....wishful thinking, but ever the optimist. Pub lunches everyday - how's that for planning :lol: .

Hopefully I will be blogging it along the way here....unless the scrumpy gets the better of me

Hi RP, what a wonderful walk this will be, it's a lovely part of the country, I used to live just outside of Bath and love the area. Maybe it's a walk that will be added to my list! I shall wait until you have finished and written up your experience before I make a final decision.

Good luck and enjoy those pub lunches - I look forward to reading about it.

All done and dusted especially my boots :mrgreen:

Had good weather all the way as well as some odd and interesting sights and sites. I'm off to work now to write it all up in the next couple of weeks.
