    Route Description for Cleeve Common Circular Walk

    The Cleeve Common Circular Walk begins from the Cleeve Hill Golf course, which is between Cheltenham and Winchcombe. Most of the walk is easy; however, the climb up Cleeve Hill is long with some steep sections. This dog-friendly route can get muddy, and the footing can be very slippery going up the hill.

    As you walk through Cleeve Common, you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the Cotswolds countryside, especially from the top of the Hill. The top of Cleeve Hill is the perfect place to reward yourself with a break or a picnic so you can soak in the incredible scenery. You’ll also walk by an old hill fort as you make your way along the path.
