Burbage Common Walks
Explore 200 acres of semi-natural woodland, wildflower meadows and unspoilt grassland in this country park in Hinckley. There are a number of well maintained walking paths and a bridleway suitable for cyclists. There is also a visitor centre with displays explaining the management of the common and woods.
The park is located about a mile east of Hinckley town centre. The Leicestershire Round walking route runs through the park so you could extend your walk if you wish.

A popular spot for post walk refreshments is the conveniently located Mays cafe. It's a friendly place where you can get a nice bacon sandwich and cup of tea after your exercise. You can find the cafe on the edge of the common at a postcode of LE10 3DD for your sat navs.
There's also Acorns Coffee Shop near to the car park. They have a good range of meals and snacks with a good outdoor seating area for warmer days.
The woods are a great place for a dog walk and you will probably see other owners on a fine day. The two commonside cafes mentioned above are also very dog friendly.
