A 3 mile circular walk from the small village of Bucklebury in Berkshire. The walking route climbs through fields and alongside a pretty stream up to Sadgrove Farm, before turning back downhill where you are rewarded with views across the Pang Valley. You will have chance to glimpse some of the vast array of animals within Bucklebury Farm Park, including goats, donkeys, alpacas and wild boar. (Note: Please read the safety/access notes below about the farm park, particularly if you intend to take a dog with you). The walk is one gentle climb followed by the equivalent descent, but there are no particularly steep sections. The paths pass through woodlands and fields and so can be very muddy after periods of rain and in wet weather. There are two stiles on route (both of which are usually avoidable with open gates alongside) plus a couple of kissing gates. You will pass through a few fields holding sheep. The final leg of the walk follows the public footpath which passes through Bucklebury Farm Park. This will lead you through a field of Dexter Cattle (a small black breed) and the official line of the footpath also crosses enclosures holding other park animals (such as alpacas, llamas, donkeys and exotic deer). We strongly recommend you follow our instructions to avoid these enclosures, and if you have a dog with you please show respect for the park's animals by keeping the dog close to you on a short lead and walking quickly and quietly through the park. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.

Very pleasant walk. A few moderate climbs and very muddy in places (December). Last mile is on roads. Bucklebury Farm Park very interesting and worth spending a little time looking around. Enjoyed this walk.

Did this walk this afternoon. A lovely gentle ramble through the beautiful Berkshire countryside which is hidden just a few miles south of the M4. Even managed a picnic in the woodland between waymark 1 and 2 - thankfully the predicted rain stayed away. Thank you!
