Castle Combe & Ford Wonderful Valleys Walk

Height Gain:
Possible Starting Points:Castle Combe : Ford

If you are looking for a 3 hour walk around Castle Combe then look no further.

This is one of our best walks to date. A stunning walk around the Valleys between Castle Combe and Ford. The walk has two natural refreshment stops, with multiple pubs and cafes in Castle Combe and the White Hart pub at Ford.

The walk also takes in a long stretch of Broadmead Brook and of course the wonderful village of Castle Combe.

You can start/finish the walk from the Castle Combe Car Park or from the White Hart Pub in Ford. We recommend starting in Castle Combe, having a pint (or two) in the White Hart, and then lunch at Castle Combe.

Castle Combe can get busy with tourists during the summer season which can make parking difficult. We recommend you get their early in the morning or start at Ford. The tourists do not leave the village so once you are 300m on either side of Castle Combe you probably won’t meet anyone else on the walk!

We loved this walk but what did you think?
