Cotswold Towns

Throughout these pages we explore all of the towns and villages across the Cotswolds. Just how far do the Cotswolds extend? We have used the same definition as the extended Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This starts at Chipping Campden to the north (we have included Shakespeare's Stratford - not to be missed if you are that close). To the west we have Woodstock (the home of Blenheim Palace) and all the way down to Bath in the south. We have also included Gloucester on the edge of the western escarpment.

Chipping Campden or Bath are ideal starting or finishing points for your walk. We have even referenced the "local watering holes" for you along your walk.
