Harlestone Firs is a lovely place to go for a country walk. The views are lovely and there is a good bit of ground to cover. Very relaxing and tranquil.

Great trails around this Althorp Estate owned woodland. Great for dog walkers and cyclists also. Most paths will be OK in winter.

Open access land which is glorious for bikers, walkers and dog walkers. You can devise walks from 1 to 12 miles. Main drag is pretty good underfoot so OK for winter walking in the correct footwear.
