Walking in the Cotswolds – Snowshill

Looking at the view towards Broadway – August 2016


For this walk we used: Collins Short Walks in The Cotswolds (Published: 2014) Walk 10: Snowshill. Distance: 4 miles.

Sitting high up in the hills above Broadway and the Vale of Evesham is the picturesque Cotswold village of Snowshill. Most of the village is built from the locally quarried honey-coloured Cotswold limestone. Its elevated position offers superb views of the surrounding countryside. From point ‘G’ on the map there were fantastic views of rolling hills surrounding Buckland.

Unfortunately, we do not recommend this particular walk. It returns for over a mile along a busy road. We did our best to keep close to the hedge, but cars and lorries were hurtling past us just inches away. Not advisable! I’m not sure why the Ramblers Association thought this was a good idea.

This area of the Cotswolds is well worth visiting, but pick up a copy of the OL45 OS Explorer map, and stroll along some of its quiet footpaths. A safer circular walk could instead return along part of the Cotswold Way National Trail. Or you could of course retrace your steps from point ‘H’.

It is a shame because the first part was wonderful, but due to the dangerous road we would not walk this route again.

Our Rating: 2/5
