Birdlip, Witcombe, Cotswold Way Loop

This dog friendly walk takes in a lovely stretch of the Cotswold Way with a mix of woodland and open fields.

The walk starts and finishes at The Royal George pub which is dog friendly in the bar area. Walking out the back of the car park there are many different paths that you can take to head towards Birdlip woods peak.

From Birdlip woods head through open fields to the top of Green Lane. There follows some road walking to the bottom of Green Lane. Turn left to follow the Old Cirencester Road past the Beefeater Twelve Bells pub (dogs only allowed in the garden). After about half a mile there is a signposted left turn towards Witcombe Roman Villa. Take this left and follow the path up past the villa and into the woods where you turn left to pick the Cotswolds Way back up towards Birdlip.

I mapped this walk using Mapometer and you can view the route by clicking here.
