Three Counties from Chastleton – 10:30am start

Back to Guided Walks page

Chastleton is tucked away in the far west of Oxfordshire. The walk soon takes us into Gloucestershire with lovely views towards Stow before reaching the southernmost tip of Warwickshire and the pretty village of Little Compton with its 14th century church and imposing manor house.

The walk is largely on quiet paths and along quiet lanes. One path may be muddy, especially after a wet spell. Classed as moderate as there is an uphill pull. The start time of 10:30am means you arrive back just as the house is opening, it is well worth a visit. Bring a picnic to enjoy after the walk, there are picnic tables in the car park. Toilets there too.

This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (07841 663607) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
