Prices similar to competitors, but they offer student discount so that's what gets me inside. A fairly large range and big sized shop (not as large as in Liverpool though). Staff friendly, and helpful. Only issue being a couple things didn't have price labels so you would have to find/ask staff.
I find it very difficult to get boots, rucksack and hiking clothing which fit me, to the point where I've just been using stuff I've owned for years which isn't great, but at least I know what the problems are. But after two weekends of not-very-enjoyable hiking, feeling too hot, too wind-blown, and too wet, and constantly trying to adjust by taking things off and putting other things on and then off again, I decided to try Cotswolds (I normally shop at the less pricey Mountain Warehouse). And I'm glad I did: the lovely sales assistant, Sarah, listened really well to what I wanted and didn't want, and found several really good options which fit me and had the features I wanted, and she talked me through several rucksack options, discussing very knowledgeably all the features, and I'm really, really happy with my purchases. I went into the shop feeling I probably wouldn't find anything close to what I wanted - this has happened many times before - and I've come away feeling satisfied that the rucksack and jacket I bought are the best possible options for me. The shop has lots of good stock, but Sarah's help was crucial for me.

Its a small(ish) store but has a mezzanine level making it bigger than it looks. Friendly service when I visited.
E Mid priced shop with good quality kit. Good range of stuff on this two floor store.

Great variety & finding the prices are very competitive even in comparison to so called discount stores like Go Outdoors. The greatest perk for me is the knowledge of staff and want to help and advise. Last time I was there I was looking for a light weight tent for wild camping & a stove and they were more than happy to set the tents up I was interest in and then list of the perks & downfalls of each.
Great service and choice. Get a discount card...it pays off quite quickly. Cafe good too and not expensive
