A guided walk along the tip of the Cotswolds

Discover stunning countryside on the tip of the Cotswolds on this moderate 5-mile walk led by the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Upton House sits in the most northerly part of the Cotswolds, sharing the geology that unifies the Cotswold national landscape. Unlike other parts of the Cotswolds, this area has few wooded valleys but sits on the escarpment offering wonderful views.

This walk will take you along the escarpment path looking out to the rolling Warwickshire countryside below and there may be time to call at a local hostelry for a welcome drink.

Starting from the Upton House car park, this 5 mile walk is led by the Cotswolds Voluntary Wardens.
