Cotswold Way : Day 3 : Cleeve Hill to Seven Springs

That’s Bugsy, Mark G and myself done day 3 of the Cotswold Way, which took us 8.69 miles from Cleeve Hill to Seven Springs.

We had been hoping to do around 10 miles. But the heat was getting a bit much for both Bugsy and myself.

Dales Way : Day 3 : Kettlewell to Oughtershaw

That’s Bugsy, Mark G and myself done day 3 of the Dales Way, which took us 16.34 miles from Kettlewell to Oughtershaw then Gayle, Hawes.

For the third day in a row, the weather has been very good indeed! Did feel the wind even more today. Mainly due to fact we did climp to around 580 metres in hight.

So when we start day 4 of the Dales Way, tomorrow we will get a lift back to Oughtershaw. Since that’s where we left the footpath. We walked to Hawes, to get a left back to hotel with Mark’s Mum and Dad.

The highlights from today was, again the weather, the amazing views and finding a honesty box cafe at the Ruskin Hostel, selling drinks and snacks.
