Just to the west there's the little village of Oasby where you could enjoy some post walk refreshments at the noteworthy Houblon Arms. The country pub is housed in a Grade II listed building dating back to 1650. It was originally call ’the Old Red Lion,’ but was later renamed after Sir John Houblon, one of the main landowners in the area and the first governor of the Bank of England. Houblon used to appear on the £50 note until that version was withdrawn in 2014.
There's a charming old interior with several original features including oak beams and stone walls. They also have a beautiful garden area for warmer days. You can find them at postcode NG32 3NB for your sat navs.

The footpath is fenced for some distance as sheep graze the parkland and the addition of electric fencing keep both animals and walkers where they are required to be: this side of the fence. It should be possible to push a pushchair round the lake, with small children, but a stile - visible on the right - would provide an obstacle.
