We believe that when delivering marketing material, it should be hand delivered by us. This way, we get to keep areas fresh in our minds, discover new and useful information about locations, and often meet many locals who, after 2020 and 2021, are happy to have someone to briefly stop and chat with.
Since the launch of Robinson David Estate Agents earlier this year, even though summer 2021 hasn’t been the hottest or quite as long lasting as 2020, there is one thing that we have very much enjoyed in and around the many villages that make The Cotswolds, which is the many countryside walks on offer here, always leaving you feeling relaxed, grounded, and generally happier in the workplace.
Yes, throughout Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds there are what feels likes endless countryside walks, whether they’re canal side walks, riverside walks, farmland walks, woodland walks, or just opens fields off into the distance across a rolling landscape. However, even though many walks feel separate, there is one major countryside walk that is popular with ramblers all year round: The Cotswold Way, which closely follows the scarp of the Cotswolds edge.
A long-distance footpath, covering a whopping 102 miles (164km), The Cotswold Way was originally drawn in 1973, being initially sponsored by Gloucestershire County Council, who had no powers of footpath creation, so used only existing rights of way to piece the enormous countryside walk together. Several new rights of way have been specifically created since 2007.
Living near to some countryside walks, like the Cotswold Way, can have its pros and cons. For example, some rights of way can feel a little invasive to the point where some rights of way even cross through gardens, however, at the same time it most likely means that you will be living in an absolutely gorgeous, dreamy location, deemed worthy of being part of a countryside walk.
We feel grateful to be in a position where we can enjoy these countryside walks as part of our work, which have helped us to discover, connect and appreciate some locations that previously, we either didn’t know existed or hadn’t a reason to visit. The countryside walks that Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds has to offer, is just another in a long list of reasons, why this stunning part of the United Kingdom has found its way onto home hunters most wanted areas.
If relocating to Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds from the city, you could be under the impression that the countryside is just the countryside, however, farmlands, nature reserves, woodlands and wetlands vary greatly, so you may want to spend some time exploring first.
