For confident walkers who wish to stretch themselves that little bit further this is made for you. Longer walking distances mean you need to be fit and willing to walk for 7-8 hours a day to get the most from this walk. The scenery is stunning and a hearty breakfast sets you up for the day.
Day 1: Arrive in Winchcombe and overnight
Day 2: Winchcombe to Chipping Campden via Broadway - (17 miles/27.2 km)
The route takes you past the ruins of Hailes Abbey and on to the timeless beauty of Stanway and Stanton. Cross the lower slopes of the Cotswolds to the old coaching village of Broadway before the last climb to the Gothic folly of Broadway Tower and a gentle descent into Chipping Campden, perhaps the finest of Cotswold wool towns.

Walk through Broad Campden to Blockley and then via Batsford with its arboretum and falconry centre to Moreton-in-Marsh, straddling the Roman Fosse Way. On certain days of the week Bourton House gardens will be open as will the Moghul architecture of Sezincote House. Continue on through Longborough and Broadwell to Stow-on-the-Wold, with its fine square and antique shops.
Day 4: Stow-on-the-Wold to Winchcombe via Guiting Power - (15 miles/24 km)
Down to Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter and across the wolds to the perfect villages of Naunton and Guiting Power. Through woods and fields before the descent close to Sudeley Castle to return to Winchcombe.
