pub walk

This is a circular walk takes you through a mix of landscaped parkland, mature woodland, pastures, fields and streams with a pretty village and pub at the halfway point. The walk has several gentle climbs and descents throughout but there are no particularly steep sections. The paths and bridleways can be very muddy at times and, whilst most of the paths are of generous width, there are about three short, narrow sections that are prone to becoming overgrown in summer. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus 5 stiles (all of which have gaps in the surrounding fencing that should be suitable for most dogs to pass through). You will need to cross two pastures that may be holding cattle so take care in these fields, particularly with dogs. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours.

Such a wonderful walk, thank you Katherine! Easy to follow, beautiful scenery & a good mix of woodland, open pastures & picturesque lanes and hamlets along the way. Unfortunately the pub halfway was closed for refurbishment (Oct 17 due to reopen late Spring 18). We completed it with our little Yorkie at a brisk 2 hours exactly.
