A circular walk from the village of Hovingham in North Yorkshire. This is a very pretty and quiet walk just off the usual tourist route. It starts from the quintessentially Yorkshire village of Hovingham and incorporates a variety of terrain with lovely views of the Howardian Hills and countryside beyond. The walk meanders through peaceful woods over green paths and on quiet roads and the fields surrounding Hovingham, with the added bonus of a dog-friendly pub when you reach the end of your walk. The terrain is medium difficulty, mostly on green, enclosed moorland paths. There is a small amount of road walking, along some very quiet roads. You will need to negotiate two stiles and some gates. You may encounter some cattle, so take particular care with dogs. Allow 2.5 hours.
