A circular walk around the Hambleton Peninsula which is surrounded on three sides by Rutland Water. The easy to navigate route (the water will guide you!) gives lovely views across the reservoir the whole way round. You'll have chance to see plenty of wildfowl and the route also passes through two woodlands which are full of bluebells in the spring. The walk has several steady climbs including one fairly long climb at the end. There are no stiles but several gates including at least one kissing gate. The start of the walk includes crossing a sheep pasture (which can be muddy) but the rest of the walk follows a well made stone track all the way round. You'll be sharing the path with cyclists and sheep so take care with children and dogs. Allow 2 hours.

A nice easy route for a quick weekend walk with some lovely scenery. Would recommend the longer route around Rutland water if biking. The pub in Hambleton is definitely worth stopping at afterwards.
