What to expect

Relax and be guided through breathing exercises to calm our busy minds. Finishing our morning with a deep relaxation and a short meditation to feel rejuvenated.

If the weather is fine we can sit outside on the veranda or picnic tables overlooking green fields of the valley. Otherwise we will eat in the village hall.

This circular walk (5 miles - 2.5 hours) is a gem; mostly level walking which meanders through the peaceful Coln Valley bottom. Passing through two hidden Cotswold villages; crossing fields, along quiet country lanes and the banks of the gentle flowing River Coln. There is a low style towards the end of the walk. A moderate level of fitness is required.
There are no facilities on the walk, just what nature provides, so please respect our environment and take your litter home.
Re-connect with nature and your inner stillness!
