Lots on offer on this walk; hearty hills, beautiful fields, charming common land, wonderful woods and the Getty family’s Wormsley Estate. We encountered pheasants, cows, deer, sheep, a peacock and a few mountain bikers on our way round. The dog enjoyed himself immensely; he was only on the lead where stipulated (less than 10% of the walk). Give it a go!

Brilliant walk, stunning views, loved seeing the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Windmill was great for dog too he loved it and enjoyed the odd bits off lead. Read reviews about parking so went on a Friday but can see issues with this at weekends.

Very pleasant walk in the woods. Approximately 85% of walk was within the forest. Very quite and peaceful. A few muddy patches along the trail but was easy to get through. The path is on both public footpaths and Chiltern Way Extension so good to ensure you know when to use which path as its swaps between both. Overall very pleasant walk!

I think saying this charming and pretty walk is 'nondescript' is a bit harsh. I'm sure the time of the year has a bearing but we had a lovely walk through wheat fields and thatched cottage lined lanes. Plenty of up and down hill to keep it honest and a very pleasant 1.5 to 2hr walk before lunch.

Really beautiful, felt like we were on holiday, highly recommend

We did this walk earlier today. My Grandfather’s Grandfather lived in the area. A lovely walk, albeit hilly in places. A good walking stick helped. Great views and few people. Not to be missed!

lovely walk, really enjoyed it. got a bit lost between gates sometimes and had to change course due to some unfriendly cows but all in all was very good! also there's a very very big hill.

My dad and I stumbled upon this route by mistake and it was such a good find! We walked from Banbury, so this ended up being a 6/7 mile walk. Would definitely recommend doing!

Quite hilly and with a very narrow trail at one point that’s quite difficult to navigate

It was a nice easy chilled walk. A small amount of roads and mostly fields and woodland- a real Cotswold adventure.

Second time doing this walk. Lovely houses and lovely views.

A very nice walk with a good variation of woodland, fields and chalk downland. My only issue was with the 20-30 min road walk at Pishill with no pavement on a busy, fast road.

This is a very lovely trail through beautiful woodland, hillsides and villages, beginning and ending in Turville where the village pub on the Green sells drinks for take away also during lockdown. The major downside is that all this prettiness attracts hordes of people - parking in and out of the village is difficult and the trails are well filled with fellow hikers.

Lovely walk along the Thames then slightly inland through woods and over a couple of fields. We purposefully arrived reasonably early and parked away from the main Thames footpath as we knew it would get busy on a sunny Saturday. Took us a couple of hours at a leisurely pace with the dog.

Best walk I have done so far in the Chiltern Hills. It starts in the lovely village of Turville. The walk has everything: beautiful views, diverse surroundings, hilly thus interesting etc. There are four steep hills which make it a good workout. Not suitable for buggies and smaller children though. Only the last hill (clockwise - going up) is a bit overgrown in parts, unless you are smaller than 5ft which means your fine . Thanks again to those who WRITE reviews which help me to pick those walks that I will enjoy the most.

great walk. one of the best we have been on for the dogs as there is a lot of shade.

Recommended for anyone looking for a route less travelled but still would like a bit of workout (be prepared for a fairly steep climb up the Watlington Hill right at the end;)) with nice views as a reward. It has a nice mix of forests and fields. There are two bits when you have to walk by fairly busy roads but in bots cases there are paths next to it. As for parking, would recommend getting there early as it's a small one and, with Watlington Hill being a great spot for a picnic, it can get crowded fairly quickly!

Intermediate trail because of elevation gain. The paths are in good condition and easy to follow, exception made for the last km which is a bit rough, looking more like a dry stream than a path... still interesting to experience. Nice landscapes and forests. Enjoyable and much more to discover in the area!

LOVED this trail!! So beautiful, really varied and not many roads at all. Perfect for dogs as loads of fields and all the stiles we came across have dog-flaps albeit quite small ones. Really quiet too with stunning scenery. Very hilly however, iPhone said we climbed 115 floors!

Amazing views around Stonor Park and after the first few miles. Lovely wooded areas in the western section especially. Saw lots of deer. Highly recommended. Something to note: coming up to Southend (approx 2.3km in) the red path veers away from the dotted footpath across an overgrown field - do not follow this and stick to the footpath as the gate in the field is locked and it isn't easy to get out.

Wet wet wet

This is a good run for people wanting to do a 10K. Not many sights but still they're good when they occur. The cows were lively be careful.

perfect walk. Great for dogs only a handful of sheep fields. Good hills with great views.

Amazing trail with different landscapes

Great easy walk for a Sunday... loved it, defo kid friendly :)

Nice hike through woodland and the occasional field. Good one for the dog as we didn’t pass through any fields with livestock and there were few road crossings. The segment at the beginning had the odd mountain biker but the trail was quiet on a Saturday afternoon in June. Would recommend for a pleasant countryside stroll.
