Shotover Country Park

3 miles (5 km)

Shotover country park is a 289 acre site located on the outskirts of Oxford. It encompasses ancient woodland, flowery meadows, marshes, ponds, bracken-covered slopes and Shotover Hill where you will find splendid views across South Oxfordshire. There's a wide variety of flora and fauna in the park with Bluebells, Orchids, Woodpeckers, Foxes and Roe deer. There are a number of peaceful woodland walking trails and a bridleway for cyclists.
To extend your walking in the area you could visit the CS Lewis Nature Reserve. It's located just to the north of Shotover Hill and includes a tranquil wood and a large pond with lots of interesting aquatic wildlife. The Oxford Green Belt Way also runs through the park. You can follow this long distance footpath north to Sandhill through Monk's Wood. Following it south will take you yo Horspath and Garsington.
You can cycle to the park from Oxford by following National Cycle Network Route 57 to Horspath and then turning north to the park.
