This is a circular walk from the gorgeous village of Ramsbury in Wiltshire. The route crosses the River Kennet before joining the peaceful woodland tracks and field edge tracks that guide you around the rolling countryside surrounding Littlecote Park. Along the way you will have chance to see the impressive Littlecote House, a Tudor mansion with a fascinating history, and also visit the extraordinary Roman mosaic within the grounds. The walk follows unmade tracks and concrete tracks throughout, all of which are a generous width. The surfaces are firm in the drier months but the chalk can be muddy and slippery in the winter and after rain. Aside from one climb near the start of the walk, the gradients are fairly gentle throughout. There is no livestock on route, but there are plenty of game birds around so take care with dogs. There are no gates, steps or stiles on route. The climb and walk length will probably prevent taking a pushchair on the route, but in the drier months it should be possible to take a rugged disability buggy around the walk. Allow 2.5 hours.

Excellent walk with clear directions. The house is stunning and the mosaic floor was incredible. Well recommended.
