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

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

A circular pub walk from the Akeman Inn in Kingswood, Buckinghamshire. The Akeman Inn is a beautiful old coaching inn, offering the perfect destination for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route performs a simple loop around the surrounding countryside taking in large pastures, quiet lanes and old avenues with plenty of wildlife to enjoy. The walk includes a few steady slopes throughout and the paths pass through woodland and animal pastures, meaning they can become very muddy in winter and after rain. There are several kissing gates to negotiate plus nine stiles. The stiles are all tall, fully enclosed with fencing and mainly configured in pairs. Nearly all of the fields you cross are animal pastures holding mostly cattle but also horses and sheep. You will need to cross the main A41 road twice and the traffic is fairly fast moving so take particular care at these points. With all this in mind, the trail isn't recommend for dogs or young children. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.Show more
