We’ve finally been back out on the paths! Last weekend we headed up to Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds with friends Mark and Clare for a spot of walking.

End of the Walk
Outside Lavender Cottage.

We did a lovely circular starting from Bourton on the Water (Walk 1360 from Walking Britain); the walk was about 11 miles and passed through Naunton, and both Upper and Lower Slaughter…all beautiful villages! It was a gorgeous day and the sun shone throughout.

Boys - pretty house
The boys, the river and a beautiful house.

We followed the River Windrush and the Windrush Way through some beautiful scenery to Naunton, where we stopped for a delicious lunch (although the boys probably over-indulged a little!)

Approaching Naunton.

After lunch we took to the Warden’s Way and headed through the Slaughter’s (beautiful) where we stopped for a spot of tea, cake and ice cream and then headed home.

Lamb face off
A face-off with some tough lambs.

This was a lovely walk, with varied terrain, a few hills and nice scenery. Most of the paths were good, although some were very muddy. We saw plenty of wildlife, including a deer and heard lots of birds! Highly recommended!
