A circular walk of just over 6 miles from the classic Cotswold town of Burford in Oxfordshire. Take in the beautiful mellow stone buildings of the medieval town, savour the peace of rural farmland and then enjoy a lovely stretch along the banks of the River Windrush for the return leg. The walk is relatively flat, with just a few gentle gradients. The paths are mostly unmade and can get quite muddy after periods of rain and in the winter months. You will need to negotiate 5 stiles, some steps, several kissing gates and one cattle grid. The stiles all have adjacent dog gates or open fencing surrounds that should be suitable for most dogs. There is also some open fencing to the side of the cattle grid that dogs can slip through (although humans will have to pick their way over the grid!). The meadows alongside the river are sometimes used for grazing so take care with dogs. There are public toilets in the car park at the start of the walk. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours.

This was our first time using the app and from now on we will use nothing else. After using so called “guide books” and finding ourselves lost or going in circles because of incorrect, out of date or just plain impossible dis-information we are converts. We have only recently taken up hiking and whilst we are going to learn to use a compass & map this app will compliment our walks. Thanks

Good trail with a nice variety of terrain. A few cows along the way. The Royal Oak and The Angel are conveniently placed at the end.

Lovely Sunday afternoon walk. Completed with tea and cake in a Burford cafe.

Nice 10k loop, good mix of terrain (field 75%, road 20% and forest 5%) and some nice views along the way.

Lovely gentle walk but some of the stiles are in poor condition and would be difficult to negotiate for some older people.

Idyllic scenery, a nice mix of hills and flats, maybe a bit too much roadway to get top marks and there is one part where the charred path is no longer accessible. St Oswald’s church is a jewel.
