A walk in a quiet and remote part of the Cotswolds, which will spring one surprise after another on you. The walk starts at Kingscote, sitting on top of the Cotswold plateau. However, the level landscape quickly gives way to the Cotswold escarpment, which in this area is broken up into several valleys. The walk follows streams along two very different but equally beautiful valleys. Marlee Bottom has open grassland surrounded by woodland and in Ozleworth Bottom, the path heads through thick woodland, occasionally opening out for secluded lakes in such peaceful settings. In between the valleys is Ozleworth itself, which is more like a private estate in parkland than an actual village. It is worth taking a short detour here to visit the church, which is unique with its hexagonal tower and circular churchyard.

There is also a very good pub close to the beginning and end of the walk. The Hunter's Hall serves food all day and also has a large beer-garden with extensive children's play area.

Really good and varied walk with excellent directions. Its amazing how 'away from it all' you can feel in the bottom of the valley.

Wonderful walk and as it says full of surprises. We parked at Hunters Hall as there is very little parking space in Kingscote itself. Recommend for lunch - great sharing platter. Point 9 - after going through the gate keep to the right along the fence (little track made by horses) and you will come straight to the tree - now with virtually no top branches.
