Start at the pretty Cotswold village of Broad Campden and climb up onto the hills above, before a gentle descent taking you past the grounds of a large estate farm and then dropping down along the edge of Bourton Woods into Blockley. Through the village, to climb once more before descending along the edge of a shallow valley and back into Broad Campden.

Two things of note, the parking at Broad Campden by Church is very limited 2 car spaces of which today both were occupied so we went on to Blockley where your can generally find somewhere to park and started from there instead . Secondly a lot of the walk is on made up farm tracks so a little hard on the feet. Overall a very good walk

Fab walk. 3 or 4 stiles in the second half, some of it which were quite high with no obvious alternatives. I think I'll go back and do it the other way round and see the views from the other direction.

Great walk - we did it after several dry days. I have a feeling it wouldn't be so good after rain. The views were great and there were a variety of features and view. The village of Blockley was like being taken back to a stereotypical English village of the 1950s. Beautiful unspoilt village. A walk that rewards the effort.

We made the most of a beautiful sunny autumn day and very much enjoyed this walk from Broad Campden to Blockley. Following the route was very straightforward with clear paths and good directions. We took a slight variation, deviating from waypoints 4-6 to continue through the woodland which was lovely with the dappled sunshine and accompanied all the way by multitudes of grouse and pheasant ! We certainly recommend this walk which has plenty of variety without ever being overly strenuous.

Waypoint 3 After the gap in the hedge, the footpath now immediately and clearly, bears right and the wall stays on your left all the way to the Scots pines (I didn't actually see a larger gap further on). Also, it might be simpler to simply say 'after the Scots pines continue to follow the wall to the bottom left corner of the field and then turn right for 100m.' (There was no indication of anybody attempting to go straight to the woods entrance) Michael

We did this walk today - a sunny day in May and thoroughly enjoyed it. A lovely walk but enhanced by the profusion of spring flowers everywhere. Directions were extremely clear and accurate. A great spot for a picnic is at waypoint 9 - either just past the line of horse chestnuts or on the other side of the valley, looking back.
