How do you fancy going for a nice gentle stroll in the Cotswolds?  You can go for a week or a part week.

The Cotswolds – an area of gentle hills, honey coloured stone villages and The historic City of Bath is very close about 100 miles West of London.

The footpaths are always well maintained, so you are not likely to fall into a pothole. It’s easy walking for anyone of any age or fitness level.

Contours Walking Holidays can provide you with accommodation, collect your baggage, supply you with full maps and directions.


Then you have a choice of routes. Which do you fancy?

•    Pretend you’re a Roman Soldier and follow Hadrian’s Wall
•    You can take a hike from coast to coast across England
•    Studying sea birds
•    Or exploring villages

With all the choices you are bound to find something to suit.

On some of these walks – children and dogs are made very welcome.

The Cotswolds is an ideal area for children as the walks are not too challenging. The interest of the children is kept at a peak because there is so much to see and do.

For example on the Cotswold Ring there is a castle, a falconry centre a motor museum and a model railway, just to mention a few.

Or perhaps you might want to go longer distances, so cheating a bit and taking a bus is within the realms of possibility.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome in some Bed and Breakfasts and hotels.
