We took a little short cut and skipped the Bulkeley Hill for another day. Other than that the route was gorgeous. Some lovely views, walks through a mix of woodlands, fields, meadows and lanes. Very few roads. Beautiful houses. The pheasant is a gorgeous pub to stop off at for a pint and a bit of food. I would love to do this walk again.

Very easy walk could do in trainers. On lower plains for the most so not windy. Walking through Forrest and farm fields. Take a pit stop at the pheasant inn, would recommend. Could do as an autumn or winter walk

HikingGreat!
First to Review

Loved todays route. We went off route for a nosey around the grounds at Peckforton Castle. Just stunning and worth the detour. 1st time using the app and felt let down a few times. We would be following a oath to be notified we were off route. We back tracked several times times to find out there was no alternative and decided to ignore the app on a few occasions. I guess we need to keep working with it to get used to it.
