How it Works
Delivery of the Trail pack is free. If you're traveling from abroad let us know the address of your accommodation in the
and we will ensure your trail pack is there upon your arrival.
Our trail maps are your companion and guide. There are directions to follow on the map as you move around the trails.
The maps are packed full of interesting information to read and uncover as you meet new places on the trails
Discover more about your surroundings by uncovering the answers to the trail questions at each of the major stops on the routes.
SOME INS & OUTS
Gather a group of friends & family and set a date for a discovery trail. 2-4 people in a car is ideal.
We have designed the Cotswold Discovery Trail to encourage exploring the outdoors, learn about the Cotswolds and to be 'SCREEN FREE', using real maps.
The only time you need to use connected devices is to check your location or route. The maps are fully navigable but you can check your location by scanning a QR code, which will take you to a google map of the route.
Download a Free QR code app from your favoured app store now and test this QR code.
The trail pack also includes The Kids Cotswolds Challenge. Designed for families with younger children, pictures of many classic Cotswold features are represented which they have to spot on the way round and mark on their own map.
We have also made The Local Logo Challenge. We have selected a number of logo's from local organisations you can spot from the car or on foot with their text removed, but the essence of the logo remaining. You have to identify who they belong to and fill in the black spaces.
Questions and clues are there for you to answer on the route to observe from the car and also at each stop where you explore on foot.
Many of the questions are designed to use the maps themselves where they have to be folded in certain ways, different light sources used to reveal clues or the maps used in conjunction with physical features you need to find at certain locations.
Your answers can be filled in on the maps themselves using the spaces provided.
The answers can be found on a hidden page on this website. The details of how to access it will be in your trail pack.
