Cleeve Hill Circular

5 miles (8 km)

Climb the highest point in the Cotswolds on this splendid circular walk. The walk makes use of the Cotswold Way so is well defined and way-marked. It begins at the car park at the southern end of Cleeve Common before crossing the common and climbing up to the peak of Cleeve Hill which stands at 1,083ft (330m). From here there are marvellous views: to the west, overCheltenhamand theracecourse, over theRiver Severnand intoWales, and to the north overWinchcombe.
You can extend the walk by heading to the eastern side of the hill where you will find Belas Knap. The neolithic,chambered long barrow is a scheduled ancient monument in the care ofEnglish Heritage. The fascinating site dates from 3000BC and features a false entrance and independently accessible side chambers. The Cotswold Way can be followed to the site from Cleeve Hill.
You could also start the walk from nearby Winchcombe and follow the Cotswold Way to the hill. The Winchcombe Way runs through the town and the area surrounding Cleeve Hill.
