2-3 hour drive

See the Devil’s Chimney.

Is it a demon finger emerging from the underworld, Beelzebub's blow hole from below, or something nowhere near as sinister? Local legend says an evil resident is buried under the unusual limestone formation on the Leckhampton Loop. Why not see it for yourself and make up your own mind?

Dogs are welcome but may need to be kept on leads.

<strong>LECKHAMPTON LOOP</strong>


2-3 hour drive 

More stroll than roll.

Coopers Hill may be famous for cheese-chasing daredevils, but this circular route gives ramblers a chance to see a calmer side of the Cotswolds. Keep an eye out for deer, badgers and weasels at the largest nature reserve in the region and get your camera at the ready for a blanket of bluebells in May.

2-3 hour drive 

A treat for tree lovers.

The Cleeve Hill Common route tells a tale of three trees. From the two wind-swept trees affectionately known as ‘The Twins’ overlooking Cheltenham and Gloucester, to ‘The Single Beech’, the Cotswolds highest and loneliest tree that offers a 360-degree view of the hilltop landscape, there’s a picture-perfect photo opportunity at almost every turn.

<strong>CLEEVE HILL COMMON </strong>


2 hour 30 minute drive 

The Cotswolds with a Korean twist.

This short, circular walk is twinned with a route in South Korea. One of the world’s first friendship trails is designed to promote tourism in both destinations but with the superb views from Stinchcombe Hill, there’s probably nowhere else you’d rather be.
