Plenty of hills and spectacular views, the walk will take you right through the Prime Minister’s country retreat of Chequers. Good old English footpaths, the authorities once tried unsuccessfully to divert the footpath outside of the Chequers estate.Show more

A walk in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns which takes walkers on a circular route around Chequers Court, the Prime Minister's official country residence. Taking in a range of hills and valleys within the Chiltern's area of outstanding natural beauty the views are beautiful from many points. The walk also includes a section of the Ridgeway, said to be Britain's oldest road. The walk follows woodland and field paths which will be very muddy and slippery after wet weather. There are several fairly steep ascents and decents including a number of steps. The walk passes over six stiles (all of which have open fencing alongside for dogs to pass through) and a number of gates. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.Show more

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
