7. Cranham Coopers and the Beechwoods

The Cranham Coopers and the Beechwoods walk has been kindly supplied by National Trails.

This beautiful little walk shows you around one of England’s most treasured habitats, beech woodlands, and leads you to the site of perhaps the Cotswolds’ most iconic and intriguing tradition, cheese-rolling. Follow these four short miles and discover the cathedral-like calm of Buckholt Wood, richly carpeted by bluebells in May, and wonder at the dizzy heights of Cooper’s hill where for hundreds of years the foolhardy have risked their necks for cheese and glory...

  • Distance: 4 miles
  • Duration: 2 – 3 hours
  • Difficulty: Easy. No stiles, but some moderately steep sections.
