Holiday information


A walking holiday in the Cotswolds

For many people the magnificent scenery of the Cotswolds is rural England at its very best – neat villages of golden-coloured thatched cottages, green rolling hills topped with intriguing follies, country houses boasting immaculate gardens, and inviting, well-signed footpaths that lead from one charming village to the next. Add to this a rich and varied history and welcoming hotels serving delicious cuisine, and you have all the ingredients for a wonderfully relaxed walking break.
With two nights in each of our chosen hotels, you have time to get to know the village of Mickleton before heading out along the Cotswold escarpment. Here, you will discover a landscape carefully nurtured and managed by the hand of man for centuries as you make your way to Broadway, often referred to as 'the jewel of the Cotswolds'. Indulge yourself at the famous Pudding Club; explore the gardens of Hidcote Manor; climb Capability Brown’s towering folly; and walk up Dover’s Hill, home of the historic Cotswolds ‘Olimpicks’.

  • Arrival in Mickleton
    Night 1: at Three Ways House Hotel (the first of two nights here).
    As your first night’s accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of walking.
  • Circular walk from Mickleton: 15km (9 miles), 4hrs
    Start the day with a gentle stroll round Mickleton, discovering its 12th-century church and pleasant mix of vernacular architecture. Our route into the surrounding countryside leads first to the impeccable gardens of Kiftsgate Court and on to those at Hidcote Manor*, best described as a series of ‘outdoor rooms’ strongly influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement. Enjoy glorious views as you cross Nebsworth Down to reach the village of Ilmington, before heading south, passing Foxcote House – a splendid 18th-century mansion – on your way to Ebrington, famed for its thatched cottages and idyllic village green. You return to your hotel via the delightful hamlet of Hidcote Boyce.
    *Please note: the gardens at Hidcote and Kiftsgate operate different opening hours. Please check they will be open on the day you are there, if you wish to visit either or both of them.

  • Mickleton to Broadway: 15km (9 miles), 4hrs
    Leaving Mickleton, today’s walk starts by climbing Baker’s Hill to join the Heart of England Way. Enjoy sweeping panoramas over the Cotswold countryside as you follow the wooded escarpment to Chipping Campden, which owes its beauty to the area’s former wealthy wool merchants. Take time to explore this traditional market town and enjoy lunch of locally grown produce at one of its many pubs, restaurants and cafés. When you are ready, you ascend Dover's Hill, a local beauty spot boasting far-reaching views over the Vale of Evesham, before following the 'Mile Drive', a wide green lane that takes you to The Broadway Hotel in Broadway, where a Cotswolds' cream tea awaits.

  • Circular walk from Broadway: 8km (5 miles), 2hrs
    For your final day, our suggested walk takes you firstly to the remarkable Broadway Tower. The view from the top of this folly, created by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown for the Earl of Coventry, is said to take in as many as 16 counties. You descend through rolling hills and woodland to return to the village of Broadway.

You stay at two high-quality Cotswold hotels of great character – one is home to the famous Pudding Club; the other is a traditional 17th-century house.

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >



If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help. You might also find our General FAQs section helpful.
  • We sincerely hope that your holiday experience will be as enjoyable as it would have been before the pandemic – walking holidays are ideal in these times of social distancing, and we’re not operating holidays if the key highlights can no longer be delivered – but, naturally, there will be some changes to ensure your and other people’s safety.

  • We’ll send you route notes and maps 2-3 weeks before your holiday. The route notes not only contain directions to get from hotel to hotel, but also include practical information about places of interest and eateries along each route, plus cultural information about the area. If/when you are moving between hotels, you leave your luggage in reception as you leave, and it will be transferred ahead to your next accommodation, meaning that all you need to take with you are a camera, sun cream, drinks, food and waterproofs.

    For more detailed information, see our walking holidays in Europe page.
  • Yes, absolutely. Over the years, we have arranged a great many walking holidays in the UK for customers living in the USA, Canada, Australia and beyond.

    If you've never travelled with us before, it's worth reading the web pages which explain how we can cater for customers who live outside the UK. The main thing to bear in mind is that our tour operator's licence doesn't allow us to book flights that originate outside the UK, and nor are we able to book rail travel in the UK, so we can't make travel arrangements for you, other than pre-arranging taxis between the local railway station and the accommodation – see the ‘prices & travel options’ section for the options available.

    As regards entry requirements, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. Our essential travel information page provides links to websites where you can find out about the applicable requirements, along with general official travel advice.
  • Since our holidays are self-guided, we recommend calling us for a chat about your plans before making a booking, especially if it’s the first time you’ve booked with us.
    The price panel shows the supplement for a single room and also the single traveller charge (this covers (luggage) transfers and other costs which are usually shared between two people).
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to buy our travel insurance policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK and EU residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    We'll ask you for the details of your alternative policy (insurer, policy number and medical emergency phone number) so that we can help out if the worst happens while you are on holiday. It's up to you, though, to check that your policy covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs; we don't check alternative policies.
  • We are happy to take bookings for families of teenagers if they walk regularly, love the outdoors and are comfortable with the distances and ascent/descent involved, but please note that the bedrooms at most of the accommodation we use will normally only sleep a maximum of 3 people, and sometimes only 2.

    At the request of some of the accommodation providers on this holiday, we are unable to accept bookings for children aged under 12.
  • Unfortunately not. The Inntravel team includes many dog owners, but the extra considerations – such as whether taxi firms accept dogs for transfers to the start of walks, whether routes cross private land on which dogs are not allowed, and proximity to a vet’s – would add another layer of complexity to what are already quite complex holidays.
