Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Overseen by Natural England, the common and its surroundings lie within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Common covers an area of 405 hectares (1000 acres) including the highest point of the Cotswold Hills, at 330 metres (1083 feet) above sea level. There are spectacular views across the Severn Vale to the Malvern Hills, the Forest of Dean and beyond to the Black Mountains in South Wales and the hills of Shropshire. To the east stretch the gently undulating slopes of the Cotswolds dipping towards the low vales of Oxfordshire.
The Cotswold Way runs across Cleeve Common. This National Trail follows over 100 miles of the Cotswold escarpment between Chipping Campden and Bath. Click here for more details.
