Inspiring the nation
Cotswold Outdoor has been helping customers get outdoors for more than 40 years now, offering expert advice and an unrivalled range of kit for all sorts of active adventures. We share their love of nature and a passion for the great outdoors.
Since our partnership began in 2015, our friends at Cotswold Outdoor have helped us look after precious walking landscapes and trails, inspiring more people to get outside and enjoy them.
Helping us care for special places
Through our ongoing partnership, we continue our efforts to inspire the nation into exploring, discovering and enjoying more of Britain’s coast and countryside, safely and responsibly. Cotswold Outdoor gives us funding to help care for walking trails so that more people can access the countryside. Plus, when you use your National Trust supporter discount code, up to 5 per cent of the purchase price goes back into helping us look after the places you love to explore.
Great oaks from little acorns grow
Cotswold Outdoor started life in 1974 as Cotswold Camping, selling a range of basic camping accessories from a small outbuilding in the Cotswolds. Forty years later, the company is an award-winning multi-channel retailer with stores throughout the UK.
Passion for the outdoors is at the heart of their ethos. From climbing the Old Man of Hoy to cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, Cotswold Outdoor staff are brought together by a love for anything and everything outdoors.
