Explore the Cotswolds

Grab your boots (or maybe your cycle helmet!) it’s time to get out into the beautiful Cotswolds countryside and explore. There are plenty lots of gorgeous routes through the area surrounding Upper Slaughter, but here at one of the finest Cotswolds hotels we’ve chosen our favourite few to give you a flavour of the options:

Walk the Warden’s Way

Bourton-on-the-Water to Naunton: 5½ miles, approx. 3 hours.
Naunton to Winchcombe: 8 miles, approx. 4 hours

This is great route for seasoned walkers, but you don’t have to do the whole thing! Head off for the day or take a one hour circular walk on the particularly charming section of the Warden’s Way route which leads down to Lower Slaughter and starts right near the hotel’s front door. And if you decide to be spontaneous – relax, we have spare wellies available at the hotel!

Broadway and the Tower Circular Walk

4 miles, approx. 2½ -3 hrs

Take a short drive to Broadway to begin this great walk leading along historic tracks and up to the intriguing Broadway Tower with its spectacular views across the Severn Vale into Wales. This is the perfect way to taste a little more of all the Cotswolds has to offer.

Snowshill and Beyond Off Road Cycle Route

12 or 18½ miles (depending on chosen route), approx. 1½ -2 hrs

There are plenty of lanes around Lords of the Manor to explore – you can reach Lower Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water easily. For a particularly picturesque cycle ride, head to nearby Snowshill for this circular tour of some of the best Cotswold countryside.
