As part of the Great British Walks-season we're hosting two autumn walks on Saturday 3 October and Sunday 18 October. Led by a Cotswold Warden, the group will start at Newark Park and follow the Cotswold Way, taking in the beautiful views from the Cotswold escarpment. The walks starts at 10.30am (our catering pavilion will be open from 10am for walkers who want to start the walk with a warm drink). The walks will take around 3 hours and finish back at Newark Park. All walkers are advised to wear walking boots and be prepared for all kinds of weather.
