The Cotswold Way is a 100 mile National trail stretching from Bath up to Chipping Campden. On Sunday my parents, my brother and I joint the trail at Wotton under Edge and followed it to North Nibley for a lovely Mothers Day dinner at The Black Horse Inn.
This part of the route takes you through Westridge woodland, alongside farming fields and out into an opening of green with the William Tyndale monument towering above you. A donation of £1 lets you wind up the endless stone staircase to 360′ views of the land around you. The trail is very well sign posted and the terrain, although sometimes surprisingly steep, is easy under foot. We were sharing the woodland with horse riders and mountain bikers but even with them it was peaceful and still. We heard a wood pecker calling for a mate and past grazing sheep and horses with woolly coats chomping on hay.
It was a lovely Sunday, escaping to the country and catching up with family.
