Lovely walk through wooded parts and along edge of fields great for the dog and good views in parts. Towards the end of the walk. The path comes out to the road, passing a house on your right, cross and ‘dog leg’ left to footpath between two fields then further in take the footpath off to the right in a gap between fields, this footpath is quiet hidden and is a bit overgrown (July) be careful as it has a steep slope down on the right hand side into a crater with a lot of water in the bottom it is fenced but my Goldie found the gap!!!!

Lovely walk through fields and woods then back round by the side of the house , you can park in the house car park. You don’t have to pay unless you go into the gardens,

Wonderful walk absolutely loved it. Dog friendly would highly recommend can see in the winter this could be muddy in places but is dry at the moment

A mixed bag. Walking by the river was lovely but lots of walking between high hedges and far too much dog poo everywhere!!. Not one I would do again.

a great walk with excellent directions. shame it was a complete wash out today but I bet the views are great.

Lovely scenery throughout. Dogs must be on leads for the beginning as there’s livestock for the first 10 minutes. A lot of bluebell patches throughout the woods, great for pictures. No signage for car parking but we did find a small field next to it that we parked in. Took us roughly 1h30m.

Great trail, beautiful riverside walk by crystal clear water, with a small stall taking donations for duck food combined with small undulating walks through the local fields.

I would recommend this walk, but if you have a dog when going through the last field with cattle up hill was a bit scary as every cow walked with me luckily the bull didn’t take much notice, just be prepared, apart from that a lovely walk through woods and fields

You can basically follow the gold signs all the way round. It's the official walk from the National Trust property

Absolutely stunning walk from start to finish and bluebells out of this world!

Brilliant trail, which starts and finishes in the lovely Alresbury. Be sure to take a donation for the duck food. Good mix of riverside and quiet farm tracks and great to learn about the history of the area. This is probably on the lower end of moderate, quite easy.

A stunning walk. However, there was a bull in the pasture field before the Rabbit Copse, who ran over to us to take a closer look. Not an experience I'd repeat!

This is a nice easy walk with no difficult inclines and no need to walk on any roads. We did this in late March and the bluebells were only just starting to flower. With so many bluebell woods along the walk April would be perfect to see them at their best.

Lovely walk with some lovely views, dogs loved it and no livestock encountered.

An excellent and quiet walk. Really beautiful scenery from beginning all the way to the end. The most clear walk instructions I have ever followed. So very well written without causing any confusion - not an easy task for walks in woods and fields, so many thanks to the author.

BEWARE! The starting point car park has signs up advising cars are broken into on a regular basis. There was glass on the ground from a car window that had obviously been recently smashed. I started the walk, but after 10 minutes gave up and went back to my car. It may be a beautiful walk, but my mind was already worrying about what would greet me upon my return. That's no way to relax.

Good walking conditions underfoot but a bit too much on the road. Easy to follow route, nice countryside.

Good directions (27/10/18), other than when told to do a few yards from private drive, we took wrong turn, but later found should have done more like 50yds to pick up on appropriate footpath, after encountering land owner in private field (even though was signposted footpath). ADMIN RESPONSE: Remember to use the iFootpath App's live GPS map to help check you are on the correct route - this will show your actual location relative to the route map.

A good walk if you like woods and open fields views. We went after rain but it wasn't too muddy. We didn't take the shortcut at the end and it was absolutely fine. Very clear instructions here.

Lovely walk with excellent instructions. We took the 'narrow path' which was not overgrown and not even particularly narrow. We plan to do it again in the spring to see bluebells and cherry blossom.

Could not find the parking suggested near the start. Parked at the village hall. Would recommend the walk. ADMIN RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed the walk. There is no car park at the start, just roadside parking on the village street outside the church.

Excellent walk with really good description of the paths and surrounding areas with good variety. Enjoyed the whole walk from start to finish and the hedgerows as mentioned above didn't affect it for me - especially as the last river section is shortly after. Throw in a quick pint at The Globe (left of the Old Fire Station) on the way back for good measure.

Lovely walk. be warned there are some steep hill at the end of the walk but the views along the way are worth it. a satisfying walk. We timed it at 3hrs 8mins.

Lovely start. Pretty boring with long stretches of high hedgerows at times.
