Places to visit



There are many local walks along footpaths and bridleways. See Ordnance Survey maps Explorer OL45 “The Cotswolds”, and Landranger 151 and 163. 

From Cosy Corner, Chastleton Manor (NT) is one of several local destinations easily accessible; approximately 2 miles away by foot – mostly on the flat. From Spring to Autumn home made tea/coffee and cakes are served in the adjacent church to fortify you for the return trip.

From Spa Changing Rooms, there are many local walks which take in the picturesque village of Lower Slaughter, or a circuit of the perimeter of the Abbotswood Estate (which is immediately behind Spa Changing Rooms). There is also a dedicated footpath up the gentle incline to Stow on the Wold (3/4 mile).

Both cottages have local maps, and walking guide books to help you plan your excursion.

Evenlode is on the national cycle routes 442 and 48. The surrounding countryside is ideal for cycling. There are two bicycles at Cosy Corner which you are welcome to use at your own risk. Helmets are available with the bicycles.
