Using the Trails

All our trails provide suitable routes for walking and many are for walkers only. They incorporate public footpaths, bridleways and other multi-use trails. Occasionally it will be necessary to use roads but we have tried to keep roadwork to a minimum and where possible to little used country roads.

If you feel like more of a challenge then why not try THE BIG TRAIL.

Easy Trails – Coloured Blue

Our easy trails are not only over gentle ground but are also not too long. As a rule of thumb, easy trails should allow you to push a wheelchair around quite comfortably.


Moderate Trails – Coloured Green

Moderate trails are those that are over tougher terrain but not too difficult. They are also not usually up steep hills or too long in distance. As a marker we have estimated that they would be fine for mum, dad and two children. Most of these trails should be able to be done by a large 8mph mobility scooter but not all so do double check.

Challenging Trails – Coloured Red

The tough trails are generally over a much harder terrain – obviously we are not talking cross country but certainly the ground is rocky, goes up very steep inclines and these trails are a lot longer. We suggest they are for walkers with sturdy footwear. Definitely not able to be navigated by scooter.

We hope you will enjoy these trails and your visit to our villages. All of the trails are made up of public footpaths and rights of way, public bridleways, roads and highways. If you come across any difficulties of access or poor surfaces please do report such problems back to us.

To enhance your safety and enjoyment during your visit we would recommend that you familiarise yourself with the Countryside Code (WWW.NATURALENGLAND.ORG.UK/OURWORK/ENJOYING/COUNTRYSIDECODE/DEFAULT.ASPX)



and the Highway Code (WWW.DIRECT.GOV.UK/EN/TRAVELANDTRANSPORT/HIGHWAYCODE/INDEX.HTM) if you are not up to speed with them already.

To the best of our knowledge all the trails and information is up-to-date. But as time goes on various aspects are liable to need updating. If you see anything on the site that you think isn’t properly current please do contact us and let us know.
