From Hailes Abbey the route takes the Cotswold Way on a leafy, uphill gradient, and visits the tiny setting of Farmcote. Superb views over glorious Cotswold landscape and quiet pastures where sheep graze contentedly are constant rewards for the efforts in tackling the uphill terrains. Eventually the route goes downhill to Winchcombe, and the short distance back to Hailes Abbey completes the circuit, passing the 13th century ruins which is owned by the National Trust and managed by English Heritage. It is open 7 days a week from 10am till 5pm or 6pm in high summer, and there is a shop, toilets and museum on the site.
