    Table of contents

    Walking the Coln St. Aldwyns Circular is a charming adventure in The Cotswolds AONB that will take you along the beautiful banks of the River Coln. There is a similar walk that heads to the northwest to visit the village of Bibury; however, this route leads more directly to the west to explore the scenic farmlands and tranquil forests that can be found on the opposite side of the river. There are several sections along this walk that are perfectly suited for off-leash dog walking, allowing your canine companions to run wild across the open fields.

    Route Description for Coln St. Aldwyns Circular Walk

    The Coln St. Aldwyns Circular Walk is a beautifully scenic adventure that will expose you to some of the most lovely landscapes that can be found throughout the Gloucestershire countryside. Setting out from the trailhead, you will first make a short loop around the village of Coln St. Aldwyns to explore its historic beauty before crossing over the River Coln to the southwest. From here, you will traverse the picturesque farmland to the west before meeting up once again with the winding banks of the river. Turn to the east and follow along the water’s edge through the fields and forest, until you arrive back at the point where you originally crossed over the river.
