Location of Charlton Kings Hotel
Long distance footpath of approximately 100 miles that runs from Chipping Camden to Bath. As the path circles around Cheltenham its nearest point is just ¾ mile from our hotel.
The River Windrush runs through the middle of this large village – where a high street might normally be. The river is spanned by a number of small scale bridges which have given rise to its fanciful nickname of “the Venice of the Cotswolds”. Many tourist attractions here including a Model Village, Motor Museum and Birdland.
Perhaps the most famous of all the Cotswold towns. Its main street is remarkably well preserved, and comparatively un-commercialised with most of the modern town tucked away out of sight! Broadway Tower stands on the edge of the Cotswolds Hills several hundred feet above the town and is an excellent viewpoint.
The original Cheltenham Festival was the Horse Race Meeting in March which culminates in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but now there are many festivals.
