Loading Events

Join us for this bespoke walking weekend set up especially for Out and About – this is a pilot trip with a special price. We will explore the beautiful southern Cotswolds based in the pretty market town of Nailsworth, voted as one of the top 101 places to live in Britain by the Sunday Times! .

This will be an active weekend with 2 days of good walking. We’ll meet up on Friday evening and do two walks of 8-10 miles on both Saturday and Sunday, and stay in the Egypt Mill Hotel, with dinner together on Saturday night included in the cost. The group will be a maximum of 12.

The walks

Walking straight from the hotel , the two walks will explore the local area : taking in the beautiful National Trust owned Woodchester Valley with its lovely lakes and unfinished gothic Woodchester Mansion, meandering along sections of the Cotswold Way through ancient beech woods with views across the Severn Valley into Wales, through local vineyards, and the butterfly significant habitat of Minchinhampton Common.

This is a weekend for people who enjoy a good walk – the area is quite hilly and we will walk 8-10 miles each day at a steady pace with time to enjoy the company and the views.


We’ll stay at the Egypt Mill Hotel and Restaurant, a former mill with a very pretty setting beside the Nailsworth stream https://www.egyptmill.com/
