Dursley is situated in a wooded valley under the Cotswold escarpment. The surrounding countryside provides plenty of attractive walks including the footpaths over Stinchcombe Hill, Cam Peak and Cam Long Down. From here you will have wonderful views over the River Severn towards Wales, the Forest of Dean, the Malvern Hills or south towards the Seven Estuary and the Bristol area.
Dursley is also situated on the Cotswold Way National Trail, the long distance trail from Chipping Camden to Bath. This makes an ideal centre for walking the trail.
