About us

With over 20 years of experience, Carryabag offers a luggage transfer service along the Cotswold Way. Whilst you are benefitting from a day of beautiful scenery and fresh country air, the team will pick up your bags and securely transport them to your next overnight stop. The Carryabag service operates the length of the Cotswold Way between Chipping Campden and Bath and covers the full 102 miles of the trail.

Carryabag was founded by Steve Short, who also runs walking and cycling tour operator Compass Holidays. As a trusted supplier for both individuals and Cotswold tour companies alike, we have transported over 70,000 pieces of luggage and become experts in every aspect of 'The Cotswolds'.


Booking your transfers...

Our standard Carryabag service runs from Easter to mid-October every year along the Cotswold Way, but we can usually accommodate out of season bookings.

We can transport your luggage from many accommodation providers including guest houses, campsites, hotels and B&Bs. We can also collect and drop off your luggage if you are staying with an Airbnb; all we require is the address and both a regular and alternative telephone number.

To book your transfers, simply add your itinerary online and we'll do the rest!
