This walk from the Wiltshire village of Ramsbury takes you along the River Kennet to the neighbouring village of Axford.
You'll pass through Ramsbury Manor Park where there's woodland trails, a pretty lake and nice views of the countryside of the River Kennet valley.
The village itself is very pretty with idyllic cottages and a fine old pub to relax in after your exercise. You can extend the walk by continuing west along the River to Mildenhall and Marlborough.

Back in the village The Bell is a good choice for some post walk refreshment. The former coaching inn has some history, dating back 300 years and with some fine old oak beams inside. They serve high quality dishes with produce from their own kitchen garden. They also have a nice garden area for warmer days. You can find them on the Square at postcode SN8 2PE for your sat navs.
The country and woodland trails on the Ramsbury Estate make for a fine dog walk. The Bell mentioned above is also very dog friendly.
