Think of the Cotswolds and you’ll probably think of the countryside, relaxation, and peace and quiet. And you would...
A Cotswold cycling holiday is surely one of the best ways to see the beauty of this wonderful part of the country. When you plan your Cotswold Cycling Holiday you can plan an epic route around the county and stay somewhere different every night, or you can plan a different circular route from the same starting point each day. And there’s a lot to be said for the latter, of course, as staying in the same place a going from there, you don’t have to pack up and move your gear every day, you can instead live in comfort in a Cotswold holiday cottage, enjoy your evenings and a warm, comfy bed.
Once you’ve settled in to your holiday cottage in the Cotswolds, get on your bike and tackle some local routes! A relatively easy one to start with is the Kingham circular route, which amounts to around 10 miles and shouldn’t take more than around three hours, although with the many pubs popping up on the route you may find it to be slightly longer! It takes you through Bledington, Upper Oddington, Lower Oddington and through Adlestrop.

There is also the Cotswold Line Cycle Route to try with a total length of 75 miles. This is kind of route where you don’t have to cycle it all, you can easily pick out a section to enjoy and do the route over several days or just pick out the ones that suit you. Great parts to try of this route include Evesham through to Honeybourne and Chipping Campden through to Moreton-in-Marsh. Whatever section you opt for, you can enjoy cycling on the quieter roads and occasionally attempting an off-road section as well.

The Bourton Circular is an ideal 15-mile route in an around Bourton-on-the-Water that takes in some of the most famous villages in the area, including the beautiful Upper Slaughter and Lower Slaughter. Most of the route is minor roads that are usually fairly quiet, but you’ll go off-road onto bridleways for a stretch too, particularly north of the Upper Slaughter area.
