What you'll do

Join your host Sonia and explore St Catherine’s Valley – one of the most enchanting vales in the Cotswolds. Featuring rolling fields, country paths and fantastic scenery, this guided walk near Bath offers a peaceful escape in a hidden valley and the charming hills of the Cotswolds.

Starting at the quaint village of Batheaston near Bath, you’ll first follow the bubbling St Catherine’s Brook and stroll across the bottom of St Catherine’s Valley. At every twist and turn of the vale, you’ll discover the breathtaking scenery of the rolling Cotswold hills. As you walk, Sonia will share her passion and knowledge of the Cotswolds and St Catherine’s Valley.

This guided walk then leaves the lush valley behind, climbs a very steep hill (the views will be worth it, we promise!) and takes you along country paths. From the top of the hill, once you’ve caught your breath, you’ll enjoy glorious views of the enchanting vale before dropping back down into the valley. Here, feeling the peacefulness and charm of the Cotswold vale, you’ll spot the picturesque village of St Catherine and the imposing St Catherine’s Court, before making your way back to Batheaston.

This guided walk is 7.7 miles long and will take 3 to 3.5 hours with regular stops.
