Route Description for Dovers Hill Walk

The Dovers Hill Walk is a lovely countryside walk that is perfectly suitable for outdoor enthusiasts of all skill levels; however, there is a portion of the trail that follows a road, meaning you will need to exercise caution. Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way southwest through the village of Chipping Campden before turning to the north to cross the open countryside. Here, the route will climb uphill and bring you to a lovely lookout atop Dovers Hill. After taking in the views, the path will turn to the northeast and direct you through several small stretches of woodland terrain, descending the hillside to reach the edge of the road. Here, you will turn to the southeast and follow the route back uphill and across the picturesque farmland on the return leg back to Chipping Campden.
