This is an excellent walk at any time, but is especially good if wet underfoot, as a lot of this trail is along stone tracks. Starting at the National Trust's Hidcote Gardens, the route takes in the typical Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, famous for the wealth it generated during its heyday as centre for the wool trade, with a lovely church and surrounding buildings. It is also well-known as the northern start of the Cotswold Way which commences just outside the market hall. The small village of Ebrington has some interesting buildings which includes the Ebrington Arms public house. The return is past the large mansion-style house of Foxcote, eventually rising to obtain glorious views over Ilmington, with a descent back to Hidcote and more lovely views.

We did this walk as a run on Saturday 25 June 2016. Several parts of the path are overgrown particularly between waymarks 6-7 and 11-12 (we gave up on the path and followed the field to the left). Lots of nettle stings and some very wet feet (boggy around way mark 6). The short path from stile to railway crossing was particularly 'interesting' with nettles and brambles virtually covering it. A shame as the start is excellent and the villages are lovely.
