Additional Days & Activities

We would be delighted to arrange additional accommodation for you along the Cotswold Way.

You may wish to plan a rest day or have an additional night at any of the locations along the route which offer activities or sightseeing opportunities - we've made some suggestions below. Please request this when you make an enquiry.

Chipping Campden

  • Many people choose to have an extra night in Chipping Campden before starting the trail because there is so much to see. It is the loveliest of all the Cotswold towns and is the best preserved and most historically important.


  • The delightful village of Stanton is another possibility for a rest day and has been described as “a Hollywood director’s idea of a quaint English village”.


  • Painswick is a delightful market town built in the prosperous 17th century and has lots of little streets to explore and quaint shops to discover. Its perfectly located for a half way break.
  • Visit Rococo Garden, a gem of an 18th century garden, and set in a hidden Cotswold valley with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.


  • Enjoy another pleasing small town with several fine buildings, including the 17th Century gabled almshouses that have a lovely chapel within their courtyard.


  • The historic city of Bath with its glorious Georgian architecture is the most popular choice for an extra night or two.
  • Almost 2000 years old, the natural hot water and beautiful setting draw thousands of visitors to the Roman Baths each year.
  • The Royal Crescent was completed in 1774 and is one of the most famous sights in Bath. The crescent is made up of 30 houses overlooking Victoria Park with fine views of the city.
  • Built in 1795, the Pump Room in Bath is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional cream tea in elegant surroundings.
