Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival 2017


2018 Walking Festival review

Another very successful Walking Festival completed, made by lots of people coming, good walk leaders and great countryside. Every year we try and offer people a wide variety of walks and it is working. Special thanks go to the volunteer walk leaders who pre-walk the routes prior to the festival and get up on their knowledge ready for the walkers.  Everyone connected with the walking festival is a volunteer and we are proud to receive the comments from people, thank you for coming.

“Everything was and is always organised and carried out to the top level. The leaders are very professional and informative and caring. The walks are brilliant but it does help having them in such an incredibly beautiful part of the Cotswolds! Everyone is so enthusiastic and friendly; just brilliant!”

“Went on 2 walks. Both well organised, started promptly, suitably paced, plenty of information, friendly leaders. Couldn’t fault either of them. Will join again next year and would recommend to others.”

“The organisation was superb as always & leaders give enough informative chat along the way to make it interesting without overload! The talk/tour of Guiting Manor Farm after the main walk was inspired-hats of to whoever had the idea! All of us found it fascinating.”

“Thought it was well organised, a great number of walks available. Did the dawn chorus walk and was taught well to listen and recognise different birds.”


We hope to see many of you again next year. We already have several ideas suggested and preparations have already begun!
