Well if you thought the New Forest was picture postcard England, just wait until you see the Cotswolds!
This is poet (and hobbit) country: rolling hills, grass, farms and sheep; the countryside broken up only by nice villages and thatched cottages. If the place were any more lovely it would be giving you a big hug.
It will be a lovely day out!
I'm having a little trouble with the route planning software so don't know the exact route that we'll be taking but, well, that never stopped us before! It will be a moderate walk, the standard 10 - 12 miles, there are a few hills in this area!
We will be going to Kingham which is about an hour and a half from Paddington, the train leaves at 10.21 arriving 11.49. As ever, you can save yourself some money by arriving at the station early and buddying up: a groupsave four ticket is just under £15 each (a single return will be just under £30).
• A packed lunch: sandwich, etc.
• 1 to 2 litres of water.
• Comfortable walking clothes. Jeans are not the greatest as they rub when they're wet / are hot when it's warm.
• Good hiking boots or shoes. There is a strong possibility of mud!
• Weatherproof jacket. Weatherproof trousers are a good idea too.
Look forward to seeing you there! Please email me if you have any questions.
