As proved on many of our VA events, most of our members enjoy a nice walk in the countryside.  We are lucky in the UK to have a huge variety of landscapes from which to choose our recreational pastimes.  For the ‘average’ walker, there are probably few areas in the country, which compare with the Gloucestershire Cotswolds.

The area provides terrain for both seasoned walkers and those just wanting a quiet walk in the countryside, with a pretty village and country pub to enjoy lunch.

Cotswold Discovery Trail, a local tourist organisation, have put together a comprehensive Trail Pack.
