Fantastic walk

What a treasure of a country Park! Wildlife everywhere ranging from deer to birds with lots of dog walkers. Wonderful management by the rangers result if a variety of habitats ranging from medieval woodlands through meadows and fields; mostly woodland walks along trails perfect for friendly dogs and their owners.

Nice stroll with some interesting views over reading.

Brilliant walk and perfect for dogs and family’s of all ages. There are 3 loops, which you can choose at the start and vary in distance. All have incline parts, brilliant. Some horse riding and L.A.R.P-ing when walking around.

Started in Lower Heyford and walked the canal to Tackley/Pigeon Lovcke. Then got the train back to Lower Heyford, using most of this map, plus an extra added bonus of the Lower Heyford to start (The Bell Inn). Slightly longer at just under 10km, but a flat, beautiful walk. Some of the paths are overgrown by Northbrook, but rest is great. The route to Tackley is quite steep, but manageable.

Decent walk with lovely scenery. Canal walk is lovely, but a few roads to tackle when heading to Steeple Aston. Not great for dogs who are used to being off lead, a few electric fences too. But a decent 3/5. Good pub (The Bell Inn) to finish and reasonably priced.

Lovely gentle if somewhat unspectacular walk through the Oxfordshire countryside

lovely walk, nothing taxing and a cracking pint to finish it off

Did this one in the winter so can get pretty muddy/boggy through the fields. Nice circular though, also good for a trail run or a long dog walk

Please be prepared if you are going walk/run this route wear long trousers. Some views are great, but some part af the roads are at this moment not passable (high grass, nettles etc). Ok, for hiking but we would not recommend this route for trail running.

Great trail. Village shop only open till 12pm on Saturday so make sure to bring a drink with you. Lots of beautiful wildlife including ducklings and deers.

Lovely trail! Last part (or beginning) is a bit rocky if you are trying to run a trail, furthermore a defined 5 stars the views of the landscapes are grait

I only had time for the riverside portion , but what a lovely walk. Really pretty and places for the doggies to have a paddle about halfway. Loved it.

Great walk, not too hilly. takes few hours of you stop to take photos. long but easy. would definitely do it again The app kept crashing so I have it partly recorded, but did the whole thing

Forest is really pretty, rest is boring

Lovely easy walk and amazing 360 degrees views across countryside. Pub busy so book lunch/roast first.

very nice walk, lots of variation and peaceful green corridors, good long stretches, the 5 miles goes quick, just be prepared for one super steep ascent (i think point 6) but otherwise ok...

An excellent, varied Cotswolds walk

scenic and gentle walk. great with the 2 dogs. finished with a pub Sunday lunch at The Angel, which is dog friendly throughout. recommended and will do this walk again.

This is a lovely walk. Roman villa is fascinating. Thoroughly recommend it.

Lovely walk with the highlight around the lock fabulous on a nice day . Walk takes you past the smallest station I have ever seen

Enjoyable varied walk with some nice views despite there being no major ascents. Would be great for dogs who like to have a paddle in streams. The tarmac lanes were extremely quiet; we weren't passed by a single car on the whole walk and only saw one other couple and a pair of cyclists. Definitely need boots or wellies for winter walking. At the start and end of the walk is a village with two pubs. One is called the Fox Inn. The other is called 'The Cinnamon Stick' which is where we had a fantastic lunch. It's a Lebanese restaurant inside a country pub. So we had a well-deserved pint of Hooky and delicious first rate Lebanese food, all good value. Need to book the restaurant on a Friday and Saturday night but there should be tables free at other times, we were told. There are dining tables in the bar area as well, and dogs are allowed into this bar area.

Nice walk and darned good beer.

Good walk, lovely views. Quite a bit of quiet lane walking - good for wet days!

Mud glorious mud and big lakes to cross, best do this walk in the summer

Pleasant walk on a grey miserable day - birdsong all the way round until even the birds were silenced by the drizzle. Only one stile. Good directions.
