With opportunities to see some beautiful scenery, enjoy a Sunday lunch Cotswolds style and see some of the history of the region, this is a walk with a lot to offer and you can see why it is such a popular walking route.

 

It isn’t too difficult, so most people can do it – there are some hills along the way, but when they promise the reward of the beautiful countryside views, you will soon forget the strenuous climb!

 

If you want to see the surrounding area in more depth, there are plenty of places that you can stop and explore along the way…

 

The Ram Inn – This is reportedly the most haunted pub in England, so if you like a spooky story or two this is a must! There are sometimes ghost hunting nights held here, so if you are feeling brave, plan your walk to coincide with one of these!

The Broadway Tower – Fantastic views from this hilltop tower, as well as a surrounding garden designed by Capability Brown to explore. There is even a nuclear bunker on the site which you can visit if you want to see a more sinister side of history.

 

Cleeve Hill – If it is stunning scenery that you want, then Cleeve Hill is the perfect place. With views across Gloucestershire, take in the River Severn, the Forest of Dean and the green fields that Gloucestershire is known for.
