When holidaying in the Cotswolds, you would be foolish not to take up the opportunity to hike through the striking local landscape.
Safety first, of course, and so before you head off out on your hike, be sure you plan your route to avoid any holiday accidents including slips, trips and falls through unsuitable terrain.
Become captivated by the Cotswolds
Lying across the boundaries of six counties, the Cotswolds is a hiker’s haven, famous for its quintessentially English countryside.
The famous Rolling Hills stretch out from the meadows of the upper Thames, all the way to Cotswold Edge above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale.
The Cotswolds was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966 promising stunning walks and breathtaking views for locals and holidaymakers alike. Avid walkers may want to tackle the Cotswold Way footpath; a 103 mile stretch of path running the entire length of the Area of Outstanding Beauty.
Culture-seekers may also want to admire some of the stunning buildings of the Cotswolds. Two castles, Sudeley at Winchombe and the Beverston, provide insight into local 12th century history.
Within the area, you will find an eclectic mix of architecture to admire. The small spa town of Cheltenham boasts delightful Georgian constructions, while Chavenage House, just outside Tetbury, offers Elizabethan themes.
Trips and falls in the Cotswolds
Have you suffered an injury caused by trips and falls in the Cotswolds, or any other holiday accident, through no fault of your own?
It could be that you are eligible to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have endured.
Across the UK, local authorities have a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety, by maintaining areas accessible to the public. If you can provide evidence to suggest that your holiday injury was sustained due to their negligence, they could be held liable for the travel accident in question.
