The Cotswolds fulfil most people’s idea of a ‘typical’ English landscape. The beauty of the Cotswolds is unique in that much of it is man-made. The distinctively picturesque Cotswold villages are typified by churches, manor houses, cottages and tithe barns all constructed from beautiful, mellow, honey-coloured stone. The same honey-coloured stone has been used to construct the myriad network of dry stone walls which criss-crosses the landscape of undulating hills, lush meadows and wooded river valleys.
The Cotswolds undoubtedly boasts some of England’s best known villages, and our walks will take us to Snowshill, Stanton, Stanway, Broadway, the Slaughters, Broad Campden and Winchcombe. We will also visit Chipping Campden - ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’ - which boasts one of the most complete and unspoilt Medieval high streets in Europe.
Of course, the excellence of a guided walking holiday in the Cotswolds isn’t simply dependent on the villages, as the area also possesses ancient woodland, pastoral river valleys and the sweeping curves of the Cotswold Escarpment. Our walks will explore the villages; meander through the valleys of the rivers Eye and Windrush; and climb above the villages to enjoy the extensive views from Dover’s Hill and Broadway Hill.
Three Ways House is the home of the famous Pudding Club, an organisation dedicated to the survival of the traditional steamed pudding. Even if your visit to Three Ways House doesn’t coincide with one of the club’s twice monthly meetings you will still be able to enjoy home-made Spotted Dick, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Lord Randall’s Pudding or Sussex Pond Pudding (to name but a few), safe in the knowledge that your indulgence has helped to perpetuate a great British tradition!
