A fairly strenuous circular pub walk from The Royal Oak in Bovingdon Green near Marlow in Buckinghamshire. The Royal Oak is an award-winning dining pub with an organic interior that oozes bonhomie, it feels like someone's home and it might as well be yours for the time you're there. With red kites soaring overhead, glass in hand and a menu to savour, it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of Marlow's riverside. The walking route explores the surrounding Chiltern landscape taking in peaceful sections of woodland, farmland and a long stretch of the Chiltern Way with plenty of wildlife and historical interest along the way. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. The paths are unmade and cross farmland and woodland and so can get very muddy after rain and in the winter months. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates, V-shaped squeeze gaps and 5 stiles (all of which have gaps in the fence surrounds that should be suitable for medium-large dogs to hop through). You will be sharing a few of the fields with horses and one of the fields may be holding cattle so take care with dogs. Some of the paths are quite narrow and can get overgrown in the summer months so shorts are not recommended (unless you're immune to nettles and brambles!). Allow 2 hours. Show more

A circular walk from the town of Marlow in Buckinghamshire, a beautiful Georgian town situated on a picturesque stretch of the River Thames midway between Reading and Windsor. The walk starts in the centre of town before passing through local meadows out to the River Thames and then returning via a stretch of the Thames Path. The walk is almost entirely flat and there are no stiles, just a couple of kissing gates. The surfaces are a mixture of pavements and river and field side mud tracks which will be muddy after wet weather. Approximate time: 1.5 hours. Show more
