Luxury itinerary day-by-day
1. Day one
Arrive at your hotel, Mallory Court, in Leamington Spa at your leisure. Your host will meet you and run through your itinerary, answering any questions you may have. Spend the evening as you wish and enjoy the scenery at this fine country house hotel.
2. Day two
Leamington Spa to Stratford-upon-Avon
The day begins with a short transfer to the official start of your walking route. Once on your way, you'll wind through a string of pretty villages until you reach the National Trust property Charlecote Park - a superb Tudor house and landscape deer park. Take your time to explore here before continuing your walk along the banks of the river Avon, all the way up to the viewpoint of Welcombe Hills which overlooks Stratford-upon-Avon. Soak up the view before heading down into the town itself and to your hotel, which is located in the very heart of this historic place.
10 miles (16 km)
3. Day three
Stratford-upon-Avon to Chipping Campden
Once you've had a chance to get to know a bit of Stratford, head out along your route which follows the river Stour for some time, before climbing up the scarp slope of the Cotswolds to Hidcote and/or Kiftsgate gardens. These fantastic gardens are real meccas for anyone with green fingers and well worth a visit. The route then follows part of The Cotswold Way until it reaches the 'gem of the Cotswolds', Chipping Campden.
13.5 miles (22 km)
4. Day four
Circular walk from Chipping Campden
On this final day, you have the option of an additional circular walk to Broad Campden and back, or to Dovers Hill at the top of the Cotswold escarpment on the Cotswold Way and back. On your return to your hotel, we will transfer you to the nearest station or to Leamington Spa to pick up the car you arrived in.
