The Cotswold Way is a 102-mile (163km) National Trail that runs from Chipping Campden to Bath, following the beautiful Cotswold escarpment for much of its course. The trail leads through quintessentially English countryside with little villages of honey-coloured stone, from open farmland to the historic city of Bath.
The new 2nd edition has been completely rewalked and all the information checked and updated. New features are:
- Baths, dogs, wi-fi All places that offer baths (as well as/instead of showers) are now mentioned, as are those that accept dogs – both being important features for many walkers. We have also noted places that have wi-fi.
- New restaurants in Bath have been added.
- Extra 16pp full colour introductory section plus some new photos.
- Includes 44 detailed walking maps: the largest-scale maps available – At just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 3 1/8 inches to one mile) these are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops.
- Unique mapping features – walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat, points of interest. These are not general-purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers.
- Itineraries for all walkers – whether hiking the entire route or sampling highlights on day walks or short breaks. Detailed public transport information for all access points.
- Practical information for all budgets – what to see; where to eat (cafés, pubs and restaurants); where to stay (B&Bs, hotels, hostels and campsites).
