The Spade Oak pub little legs walk
This is a very short walk that starts and finishes at the Spade Oak pub in Bourne End. It’s perfect for little legs who like playing along the way as there is a stream for poo sticks, the river for boat spotting and ducks and the train line to watch the train go past (if you time it right).
We tend to finish in the Spade Oak for a sneaky glass of wine whilst getting the kids some dinner 🙂
The pub is lovely and cosy, especially by the fire in the winter.
