Walking

Whether you are a serious walker, a casual rambler or an occasional stroller, walking is the best way to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.

Free downloadable walks

There are lots of free downloadable walks, circular and linear, short and long, on our free downloadable walks page.

Maps and guide books

Alternatively, equipped with one of the relevant OS maps, you can easily devise your own walks. All of these, along with a wide range of guide books and local walks collections, are available to purchase in Burford and Witney Visitor Information Centres.

Guided walks

If you want some experienced guidance and expert interpretation of the landscape, then why not join one of the regular guided walks led by Cotswolds Conservation Board voluntary wardens. The walks are free, open to everyone and often take in the local hospitality! There are also a number of professional guides, such as Talking Walks, who charge for longer or more specialised walks.

Walking holidays

If you want a short break (or longer holiday) centred around walking, Walk the Landscape offer walking holidays or day walks around the Chipping Norton area and further afield in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.

Rights of Way

Oxfordshire County Council are responsible for local rights of way and the countryside section of their website includes a page on using public rights of way responsibly and a useful interactive countryside access map.
