Lovely walk. I imagine it is beautiful in the height of spring or autumn. A little marshy this time of year but still enjoyable. Very quiet. Description between 1-1-6,were perfect. A little bit hit and miss at 7 and 8 but that might be due to change in fields etc. Tortworth farm house and cafe might be a better place to park and you get a coffee at the end 😊

Agree, lovely walk. Excellent instructions. Few stiles, mainly gates. Will do again soon.

Beautiful and peaceful gentle walk through woods and fields - mostly off road. The first loop goes through part of the Torthworth Court estate and next to Leyhill prison 's fence .. And thru part of the arboretum. The second half takes you to a view of a huge unspoilt olde English rural valley. The ancient tree by St Leonard's Church is lovely. Then through woodland and beside small river... In Spring it passes alongside bluebell filled woods. We really enjoyed this walk! NOTE: Mapmyrun calculated this as 5 miles - it took almost 2 hours. BUT as its s walk in two parts you could just do the second (and better) half to shorten it.
