This is one of our fave family walks. The views across the countryside are beautiful, especially looking out over the river Thames towards Bourne End on the route back. It’s also possible to see Cliveden. The kids love taking their binoculars along on this route.
Need to know
Parking: park on the roadside here
Distance: the route is approximately 2 miles long. It does have some fairly steep inclines in places.
Scooters/Buggies: not suitable on this route
Hazards: watch out for golfers as you cross the golf course!
Pit stop: there is no direct pit stop option on this route unless you detour. The Bounty pub is the nearest option but this would increase the walk by approximately another half a mile. The Bounty is a great summer pub with a beer garden that the kids will LOVE looking out of the river Thames. There isn’t really much inside space so stick to going when you can comfortably sit outside.
