Chipping Campden (Fire Fighters): Nov 20th
CHIPPING CAMPDEN & DOVERS HILL
A 10 mile circular route around one of the finest parts of the Cotswolds. One of the best walks for combining a charming historic village, an incredible hilltop view and a National Trust property.
You most definitely sense an air of wealth and style in this historic and charming village. Chipping Campden has a long history of wool, which can still be seen today, set amongst wonderful stone buildings.
We begin at the marker for the start/end of the Cotswold Way. It escorts us along the long flowing High Street, packed with quirky one-off shops, cafes and galleries. We head off into shaded woodland, as we steadily climb Dover’s Hill to take in stunning Cotswold scenery.
The route continues with a hike up the hilly majestic grounds of Kiftsgate Court. Then on to Hidcote National Trust, with its arts and crafts-inspired garden and intricately designed outdoor spaces (bring your membership card if you have one).
Finally, we finish back in the picturesque village from where we started, with lots of options for some well earned liquid refreshment to finish off the day.
Only regret the opportunities we don't take...
