WALKING IN THE COTSWOLDS

Elms Farm is ideally situated for taking in the natural glory of the Cotswolds, with many waymarked walking routes in and around the surrounding hills for beginners right through to seasoned walkers. The very popular Winchcombe Walking Festival is held in May.

 ​

We've put together our own local walking guide featuring some of our favourite local circular routes in the vicinity of Elms Farm and Gretton, but for a broader range of walks please do check out the Winchcombe Welcomes Walkers website at  www.winchcombewelcomeswalkers.com.
