A walk near Worcestershire has been named one of the best spring hikes in the UK by outdoor experts.

The team at Blacks rated Cotswold Way, a 102-mile footpath in Gloucestershire, for its idyllic countryside, quaint villages, historic market towns, and a range of wildlife.

Perfect for families and available all year-round thanks to its well-maintained trails, the route also offers alternative trails for those wishing to avoid steep descents.

Spring on the trail promises a vibrant display of wildflowers, with views over rolling hills and pastoral landscapes.
