The majority of us have been forced to slow down a little during the last year or so, with many of us finding breathing space in the great outdoors. Bath maybe renowned for its historic baths and Georgian facade, but it also sits on the edge of the Cotswolds and its attributed Skyline Walk is certainly worth the effort. In a relatively short distance from the city centre you can enter another world and you make up into the hills of Bath and beyond.
Ramble through six miles of wildflower meadows, ancient beech woodlands and secluded valleys, with only the soothing sound of rustling leaves and babbling waters beneath the open skies above. From your new elevated position you will catch many new perspectives on the historic city nestled below and the Blackdown Hills beyond, as you indulge your senses in the natural perfumes of this splendid rural haven. Relax in the tranquillity of the natural environment through the changing of the seasons and get back to existing with the land with a walk in nature’s bounty.
