Please be mindful and considerate when hiking this trail as parts of it border a golf course and are considered private property. This circular route beginning from the idyllic village of Castle Combe in the Cotswold is particularly picturesque, taking you through a beautiful parkland golf course before joining a beautiful stream-side path that leads you past the former buildings of Nettleton Mill and then crosses an ancient clapper bridge. On the return leg, you will pass through stunning sections of beech woodland, swimming with wild garlic in the spring months, before enjoying the centre of Castle Combe with its stone cottages, market cross and church (and the mandatory Cotswold tourists!). The route has several long and steady climbs and descents throughout, although no sections are very steep. Some sections of the woodland paths can get muddy and slippery and some other short sections of the route follow narrow paths that can be overgrown in the summer months (so long trousers and boots are a must). You will need to negotiate a few footbridges, some steps, gates and kissing gates plus one stile (that has a large gap alongside that should be easy for most dogs to pass through). There is no livestock on route. There is a total of about 1200 metres walking along the edge of quiet country lanes, so take care of traffic on these stretches. The first section crosses a golf course, so watch out for any stray flying golf balls and show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross. There are public toilets in the village centre, towards the end of the walk. Allow 2 hours. Show more
