Feel like working up an appetite?

Why not try this circular walk from our carpark? Approximately an hour and twenty minutes, this walk takes you up to the trig point on top of the Langton Caudle, 147 metres above sea level, where you will enjoy stunning views over the Welland Valley. The walk is dog-friendly apart from the last two fields, when your dog will need to be put on a lead. Sensible walking shoes or boots will be needed as there are one or two points where it may become boggy in wet weather.

Directions:
1.Park at the Bakers Arms carpark and turn right out of the carpark. Proceed down the track until you reach the ford at the bottom.
2.Take the left hand path, proceeding over the bridge and bear left. Follow the path keeping the hedgerow on your right. The hedge eventually stops, leaving an open track and passing disused barns on your left.
3.Before reaching the Stonton Road, turn right at the waymarker through a metal hand gate and walk up the steep hill on the well-defined path. You are now on part of the Leicestershire Round Walk.
4.Continue through waymarked hand gates uphill until you reach the trig point (147 metres) on your right.
5.As you descend, keep the hedge on your right and walk back through rough grass to a stile at the bottom. Enter the field with gorse bushes high on the left and walk towards the trees.
6. Continue through the trees (rough ground), emerging into pastureland. Pass through the gateway (can be boggy here in wet weather) and make your way through the field. There can be livestock here, so please be aware that dogs need to be put on a lead.
7.Arriving back at the ford, cross the stile and bridge to join the track leading back to the carpark.
8.Dogs are welcome in the carpark but not in the pub/restaurant. Please leave muddy boots or shoes outside! Enjoy your walk and we hope to see you soon. Please check opening times to avoid disappointment.
