Find the best Chipping Campden walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Weston Subedge area.

Find A Walk Near Me by using Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Campden Coffee Co

12 Sheep St, Chipping Campden GL55 6DS, UK – 01386 849251

We visited twice in a holiday week. Horrible, miserable wet day but it was welcoming and warm and cosy but informal. We had a game of Scrabble over coffee. Food and cakes were great and the latte hot and perfect. A lovely lady serving behind the counter. Would recommend for families too. Go and enjoy it. Perfect.

Cosy, casual and friendly cafe with interesting gallery exhibiting talented local artists; ceramics and printing were my favourites. Exhibitors change every 6 weeks making repeat visits a treat.

Draycott Books

2 Sheep St, Chipping Campden GL55 6DX, UK – 01386 841392

A tiny, appropriately crowded antique bookstore tended by the son of the founder. Very engaging and eager to assist. We had no intention of making a pirchasr, but walked out with five classics.

A lovely little used book store. Found some little Beatrix Potter treasures in there to take home to the States.

Outdoor Max

Weston Park Farm/Dovers Hill, Weston Subedge, Chipping Campden GL55 6UW, UK – 01608 686043

Camping and Caravaning

Campden Yurts

Hillside Nursery, King Combe Lane, Chipping Campden GL55 6PN, UK – 07792 624036

We stayed in the yurts here in July 2017 for 3 nights. The yurts are excellent: high quality design, spacious, comfortable beds, very nicely furnished. They also include a stove and lights that can be activated via portable power boxes supplied. The site is very well equipped - nice kitchen with everything you need, 2 decent bathrooms with toilets, sinks & showers. Plus another wooden area with a gas cooker and utensils, situated next to benches where you can gather to eat. The kids loved roaming around the surrounding fields - very picturesque area with some farm animals, chickens etc. The family who run the site are extremely nice - they really do try to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. Really worth making the pizzas - they provide a proper stone pizza oven, and a lot of effort is made to show everyone how to make the pizzas. A really fun activity for all. Overall, we strongly recommend for a family glamping trip. We will visit again.

On the edge of the little Cotswold Town of Chipping Campden the experience of living in a yurt was without a doubt wonderful. The yurts are lovingly decorated and one experiences the feeling of entering through the yurt door into a different world. With wood burning stove, a wonderfully comfortable bed and plenty of space, Campden Yurts will certainly be a place to return to often. The owners are down to earth and charming, lovely views across the Cotswolds are to be had from the bed or are just a short hike away and for breakfast delicious home made jams can be bought on site. I couldn't have wanted for more. I stayed a week and didm't want to leave and will certainly be visiting again.

Longhills Farm Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Longhills Farm, Mickleton, Chipping Campden GL55 6PS, UK – 01386 438536

Our dog has stayed here twice and has been very well cared for, he'll be back in 2018, excellent!

My Dog Charlie practically leaps out the car whenever he stays here. Always very flexible and happy pets returned.

What to do while you're waiting for help


  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells


  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
