    "We had a great time, met neat people, ate good food, and enjoyed it enormously, just as we did last year in the Cotswolds.

    Our friends Rick and Beth Ector did I think Painswick to Bath with you guys just after we returned home – they loved it. Glad we recommended you to them. We had a lovely time, it was just more work perhaps than we needed! Next time I’m trying to talk Jennifer into doing the Cotswolds Way Trail over 10 days or so. But I have to take her to Germany first, so it may be year after next before you’ll see us again. We recommend you to everyone we tell about our trips with Cotswolds Walks/Hikes and Bikes. We very much appreciate you willingness to work with us adding nights in Bath and Castle Combe.

    Walking in the UK is such a unique experience. For us in the States, it’s like walking through Masterpiece Theater sets! You see so much that most who simply go to London never see – the countryside, village life, the people, the pubs! It’s really a perfect way to see England.

    So, thanks again for arranging another great trip!

    We are not back in Vermont after a wonderful adventure.

    Everything you set in motion went off without a hitch. Thank you.

    The accommodations and people were fantastic.

    It helped that you dialed in 5 days of sun shine😊

    We thought the Walk was an amazing, beautiful adventure

    The towns, Bath, Bradford on Avon, Lacoock, and Castle Combe were mystical

    The Route Book was were detailed but we still got lost a number of times

    But each time just added to the adventure

    The only real complaint we have is the stated trail distances

    They were all off by at least 25% and the fact that the trail instead of going through the towns skirted them

    Other than that we had a blasted and I would recommend you to any one

    We enjoyed our trip very much.  All the places we stayed were great, nice people and very interesting.  Great walks in the Cotswold area and we did not have too many problems. Bath was a little different, we got very lost so we called it a day and after about 10k called a taxi. Thank you for all the great information and help, will make sure that we tell our friends about your good service.

    We were very satisfied and would like to thank you for organizing the trip and accommodation. We had a perfect holiday that was excellent for our minds and bodies. If possible, we will have similar walking holiday every year! Walking instructions were good, we didn’t need to use the big map at all. We have recommended your tour to all our friends in Finland, Norway and Denmark.

    Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time on our walk and that we are already looking at your other walks trying to decide which one to do next! The notes were super accurate and easy to follow. The scariest part of the trip were the angry golfers!  We met a walker that tried to tell us we were going the wrong way and, as we stopped to reread the notes and look at the map, we were getting angry gestures from golfers telling us we had to keep moving! The biggest obstacle was moving the whole herd of cows standing in front of one of the last gates before getting to Batheaston.  We both agreed the cows gave us less fear than the angry golfers! Thank you for all of your help before the trip.

    "We love to walk and to see the English countryside up close is one of the most rewarding ways to visit the UK. Each day was great in terms of variety, scenery and distance. We think it’s a good idea to end in Box on day two and see more of Lacock which is outstanding. We also loved Castle Combe and enjoyed our stay in the hotel a great deal.
