moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(48)
Length: 4.9 mi • Est. 2 h 24 m
A walk in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns which takes walkers on a circular route around Chequers Court, the Prime Minister's official country residence. Taking in a range of hills and valleys within the Chiltern's area of outstanding natural beauty the views are beautiful from many points. The walk also includes a section of the Ridgeway, said to be Britain's oldest road. The walk follows woodland and field paths which will be very muddy and slippery after wet weather. There are several fairly steep ascents and decents including a number of steps. The walk passes over six stiles (all of which have open fencing alongside for dogs to pass through) and a number of gates. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.Show more

Length: 3.7 mi • Est. 1 h 45 m
This circular walk falls into three parts, all roughly the same length. The first part is characterised by fieldside footpath walking and includes a moment passing through a farmyard, whilst the third part involves a climb uphill along made up driveway, but still through countryside. It is the middle part that is the star of the show though, as you walk alongside different branches of the sleepy River Thame, ending up at the entrance to Eythorpe Park. This section positively cries out for a rug and a picnic, or maybe a book, to while away a sunny afternoon doing nothing in particular. The walk covers around four miles and takes about eighty minutes of walking. Unless it has been exceptionally dry, walking boots are recommended. Show more

Enjoy this 12km trail starting from Low Scrubs and taking you around Linton's and Hampdenleaf Wood. Beautiful place for a small hike, walking and cycling. Plenty of changing landscapes to keep you busy and entertained from hillside views to walk through wild meadows, all within a 5 mile radius. Also, once you step a little away from busy hubs the walks get a lot more serene and quieter. If you're driving, there's plenty of space in the car park at the top of the hill, with an easy walk to a fantastic panoramic view of Aylesbury Vale and an interesting War Memorial to boot. Show more

This trail takes you through beautiful and varied countryside and, though you can't access it, it encircles the property known as Chequers, or Chequers Court, the country house of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. It was built in the 16th-century and was a manor house and is located at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. You will pass Coombe Hill, once part of the estate, along the way. Chequers has been the country home of the serving Prime Minister since 1921.Show more

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 2 h 7 m
Two glorious villages stand out on this walk: Cuddington at the start point, with its various characterful thatched cottages and elegant pub in the centre (and start point to this walk, should you feel tempted), and Nether, or Lower Winchendon, which is similarly picturesque and boasts a Victorian circular stone postbox, perfectly positioned outside the church. In between, there are opportunities to sample and cross the small but peaceful River Thame on this circular four and a bit mile walk, for which you should allow around 90 minutes, excluding stops. As well as the river there are various brooks and springs, making for wet ground at times, so walking boots are a must at all times of the year. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates and stiles along the way. Whilst most of the stiles have gaps or dog gates alongside, at least one has neither, so dogs may need a lift over. You will be sharing many of the pastures with cattle and sheep. There's a village store in Cuddington to stock up on snacks, but no other re-provisioning point on the walk itself.Show more
