Circular walks to and from Pubs, Hotels and Tearooms

The Cotswolds epitomise the romantic notion of the traditional English
scene: picture-postcard images of rolling, green hills, overshadowing
villages of golden stone cottages, manor houses and majestic churches.
This image is no dream but is clearly evident when you walk the routes
described in this map-guide. And, no better way to experience the setting
of this dramatic architecture than to walk from village to village.  But, first,
explore and savour the village from whence your walk begins. Then,
stroll through this rolling landscape of sheep pastures and drystone walls.

Herewith a list of the routes illustrated and described:
1. Broadway - Broadway Tower

from rolling pastures, dry-stone walls and trickling trout streams, to honey-coloured stone cottages in sleepy hamlets.
