Hikes and Bikes
Welcome to the Cotswolds, the walking capital of England. This area of gentle hills and honey-coloured stone villages has some of the best hiking and cycling in England. We are a local company who pride ourselves on our friendly, personable service and an attention to detail that is second to none. Some call it concierge walking, we call it the perfect way to enjoy the freedom and unspoilt beauty offered by the ancient footpaths that define the Cotswolds and leave a lasting memory.
