Welcome to the Cotswold Discovery Trail

Custom designed discovery trails for your party or group starting and finishing at your accommodation.

Follow clues and answer questions around your custom built discovery trail.

We can tailor the duration, start time, where you have lunch, everything to fit on with your plans.

We will personlise and brand you content specific to your day and event.

Your trail is designed to complete by car answering clues along the route with several stops for you to explore on foot.

The trails are self guiding, you drive yourself under the guidance and instruction of your trail pack and maps.

Trails to complete by car and explore on foot at different locations


We will personalise & brand our treasure trail maps & trail pack to mark your occasion and create a wonderful, fun filled day out for you all exploring the Cotswolds and taking on the challenge of the Cotswold Discovery Trail


We will write a treasure trail for you based on your Cotswold location and requirements.


You could provide us with photos and details of your group and event and we will weave it together in a fun filled day of discovery across the Cotswolds ​unique to your occasion.

No group too big or too small 

Trail pack for each team including team instructions, trail map, compass, pads of paper, pens and car stickers


There is a set service fee for us to write and design your discovery trail of


For each team we then charge an additional



If there are 20 people its likely 5 teams will be involved. We write subtle differences in the trail for each team to keep you apart around the trail so not to disturb each other on the route and clutter little Cotswold villages up at the same time. That's an increase in complexity. More teams also means more maps and content needing printing. 

That's why each team has an additional £25 fee

Let's have a closer inspection of the pricing here....

If there is a party of 20 people we expect that to be 5 teams of 4 (4 people per car)

The total cost is set fee of £245

plus 5 x £25 = £125

Total = £370

Cost per head is £370 / 20

= £18.5


If there is a party of 8 people, that's 2 teams 

set fee £245

plus 2 x £25 = £50

Total = £295

Cost per head is £295 / 8

= £36.9

To confirm your booking a non-refundable deposit of 25% of your booking is required. 

The entire balance is required 8 weeks prior to the trail date


"Dan’s Discovery Trail was the highlight of the hen-do weekend. From the moment the team packs arrived on the doorstep, we couldn’t wait to open them and get hunting for the well-hidden scrolls in the beautiful Cotswolds. Not only are the personalised maps a fabulous momento for the bride-to-be, they became the talking point of the whole weekend. Friendly competition put everyone at ease, broke the ice and gave us the perfect excuse to explore the surrounding countryside. Couldn’t recommend this activity more - we had the most amazing time! Thank you Dan!"

"We had a really great time. It was really fun and a great way to discover the Cotswolds! The materials were really high quality, loved the detail of all our names in the compass. The amount of stops was great and it took us the exact time as stated. The photos of the bride also added a nice personal touch which she appreciated! We weren't in the car for too long between stops which was great as we're an active bunch!"
