Ramsden. Photo by Robin Smithett

A beautiful and peaceful stone village on the north-east edge of the Cotswolds. Ramsden, meaning 'wild garlic valley', is another ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside either on foot or on bicycle. Once deep in the heart of the Wychwood Forest, the village was one of the first areas of the forest to be cleared for settlement, lying next to Akeman Street, the Roman road linking Cirencester and St Albans.

There is a short downloadable walk from Ramsden:
