Cotswold Way South

Mile 32

Cheltenham

With justification, Cheltenham claims to be Britain`s most complete Regency town, and all the architecture of modern development has to be sympathetic with this image. In 1716 a mineral spring was discovered in a village along the Cotswold edge. Within a century Cheltenham had developed into one of the great spa towns of Europe. The town’s wide streets and tree-lined avenues were built at the beginning of the 19th century; distinctive streets include Landsdowne Crescent, with its convex curve, and Royal Crescent, whose curve is concave. The Promenade has Greek terraces on one side, smart shops on the other, and at the top end a statue of Neptune, commanding a fine fountain. The Rotunda, looking like the Pantheon in Rome, was the Montpellier Spa. The composer Gustav Holst was born in 1874 at Number 4, Clarence Road - his Regency house is now a museum. It’s a fine modern town, too - the High Street is pedestrianised and has the full range of national stores and fashionable shops. There are three annual Cheltenham festivals: music in July, literature in August, and the national hunt horseracing in March.

Colgate Farm

Ham Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL54 4EZ - Cotswold Way South

The location of Colgate Farm is stunning, with views over 60 miles on a clear day over Gloucester Cathedral and across the river Severn into the Welsh Mountains. The accommodation is in a very quiet, self-contained annex on working farm, 1km from the nearest public road, but just 5km from Cheltenham town centre. Food and Drink: We have laid out the supplies we think you may need. This includes a self-catered dinner if required - ready meals from the freezer etc., or a lift to the pub for a small charge. We have done this for years, so we know what walkers want. Breakfast is also self-catered - the fridge is packed with all you could possibly require. We can prepare a packed lunch - or help yourself again from the fridge. There is a choice of two rooms, both doubles: one a separate log cabin and one with its own entrance. Both offer self-contained luxury with Wi-fi and Sky TV.
