Love this route. Can be very muddy in winter so wear proper footwear. Easy in summer - I did in sandals. Some ups and downs but still an easy walk. Enjoy!

Beautiful trail full of water wonders, woodland and a fantastic ice cream van at the peak. A lovely little trail every time

Terrible and of no use

Nice easy stroll. Enjoyable

Great walk. Saw reindeer which was unexpected

The Cotswold Way is a fabulous walk. I walked it over an 8 day period in March. It was very muddy and we still had snow on the ground but the scenery was spectacular.

The walk and view was amazing would do it again the only thing I was disappointed with was it says on here the walk is over 7km when it was under 4km.
Would of been better if the walk was longer

a beautiful and gentle walk up an easy incline to a rewarding view at the top of the Moors.
you'll undoubtedly meet a kind person on the way as well.
be sure to hit the White Wells waterhouse while you're in the area. Darwin visited the house frequently to clean himself.

The trail was really good went with the dog and had a picnic half way through.
The trail also leads through emmerdale farm which was cool.
Scenery was also nice would recommend this for other people.

Amazing walk and beautiful waterfall

Beautiful walk through a stunning part of the ribble valley , this walk has a little of everything and well worth making the effort to do it

Top place

Really pleasant loop that takes in a bit of everything.

A nice pleasant walk along the canal. Then through some farmland and into the woodlands as you climb the 195m to the top of the hill.

At the top is a nice walk along Greenham common where you can take in some great 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. Then back into the forest and down the hill back to the canal.

Not too difficult and a very nice 2hr walk.

Lovely walk, easy to navigate, great on a fine day

This 7.5KM loop primarily utilises public footpaths and very little paved roads so the experience and challenge can be very weather dependent. Part River Severn adjacent and part snaking through fields, this route offers a pleasing variety of scenery as well a varying physical challenge depending on the level of vigour applied.

Can be a bit rugged in places but a beautiful walk rain or shine!

Fun easy walk along the river. Shipbuilding towns with semiconductor vistas and two charming villages.

Did today in snow and thick mist. Winter wonderland! couldn't have found our way around without the map and gps. Route very accurate.

Great walk to view British Isle history. Bath Abbey is a great stopping point.

A beautiful place to explore, numerous waterfalls, big and small. Access to the river at several points so kids and dogs can have a paddle. There is a kiosk near the main waterfall, Thornton Force, and the area gets extremely busy on hot sunny days. very popular walk, highly recommended. Look out for the money trees!

A lovely walk with some slopes and steps, but all lovely scenery. You have to pay to walk it as it's private property (£15 for a family ticket), but parking is included.

Nice easy walk, dog and kid friendly, just keep an eye out for sheep, if you let your dog off the lead. Also if you keep going straight down instead of turning right at to go up bole hill you will come to grindleford train station, where there's a really good greasy spoon coffee shop, that does pints of tea and coffee. Just don't expect espressos and whole grain bread:)

Easy walk. Memorable sites.

We wanted something for the whole family, and this hike had it all. The Heathersage Moor was delightful with the ferns, cotton grass, flowers, and slightly damp soils. We walked up to Carl Wark, which is an old (iron age?) fort. Then up to Higgor Tor, where the winds were blowing and had great views. Next you walk up to Upper Burbage to cross under the bridges then back along the Burbage Rocks. If you look at the rocks you can see thousands of bullet holes from the Army training drills from WWII. I think everyone was happy with this hike.

A must do on any trip to London. History surrounds you. Great picture opportunities everywhere. Unforgettable.

We parked at the Stag and Hunstmen and had a drink before we set off. Their food menu looked really nice and the plan was to return for dinner however when we reached Henley it started raining suddenly quite heavily so we stopped at The Angel pub which is right on the bridge (food and service was awesome).
We saw lots of different birds and lots of activity on the river with rower.

Will definitely do this walk again, you could do it in reverse and just go to the Hambledon lock

Such a lovely, easy walk. By the time I parked and walked to the lock and walked all the way to the Swan Pub & back we actually did 6.67 miles.
I had my dog off lead for pretty much the whole time and the river is very calm and slow flowing so she jumped in and out with no bother.
The trail is more or less completely flat the whole way, if it has been raining there can be a few muddy spots but walking boots will be absolutely fine.


The lock and weirs are pretty, there are lots of swans, geese and ducks all around and across the bank you pass by a huge Alpaca farm.

In Pangbourne there is a nice green for picnics with a pretty bridge or there are a few pubs that allow dogs. We ate at the Swan and the food was incredible (it has outside area as well over looking the river and Pangbourne weir.)
