Warwickshire’s Best Walking Spots

Warwickshire is one of the UK’s most beautiful counties so what better way to explore it than to go for a nice long walk in the countryside. Perhaps you want to get into better shape or want to get out the town and enjoy some fresh countryside air - there’s no better place to do it than walking through the breathtaking Coventry and Warwickshire countryside. Nailcote Hall is situated in the heart of Warwickshire so we’ve got a great knowledge of the local area and county, and whilst there’s an abundance of walking opportunities we’ve put together what we think are the very best the county has to offer!

Draycote Water Walking

Located just over half a mile west of Snitterfield, near
Stratford-upon-Avon (around 15 miles south of Nailcote Hall) lies the
Snitterfield Bushes nature reserve. The reserve provides some great
walking trails where you can regularly catch a glimpse of the local roe
and fallow deer. With this location, we highly recommend visiting in
either Spring or Autumn where you’ll get to witness the most wonderful
colours of the plants and leaves. The Woodland is said to be home to
over 250 different species of plants so visit in Spring if you want to
enjoy the exquisite primroses, purple orchids, and vibrant bluebells.
After your walk, we recommend dropping into the picturesque town of
Stratford-upon-Avon and enjoying a Shakespearean play or taking a browse
in the local shops.

Clowes Wood and New Fallings Coppice

This one's for the lover of Autumn woodland strolls. This mysterious woodland is located 14 miles west of Nailcote and is home to a mix of fantastic walking trails, trees, shrubs, ditches and streams. There are lots to see here in terms of wildlife with fifty species of bird breeding here each year, such as jay, chiffchaff and woodcock and all three woodpeckers. The wooded area reserve is also home to badgers and red foxes, and brown hare and many other animals making it a definite must for bird and nature enthusiasts. We highly recommend visiting in Autumn, as the leaves of the beech trees turns a rich golden brown colour - making for a spectacular walking environment.

The King Maker Walk

Take in amazing sights of the historic town of Warwick with the king maker walk, located just 11 miles south of Nailcote Hall. This is a walk for everyone in the family and offers a great opportunity to visit one of the UK’s most famous castles - Warwick Castle. You begin this walk from the car park at Warwick Racecourse where you take a stroll along the towpath of the Grand Union Canal to the River Avon, keep walking and you eventually reach Castle Bridge and get a view of Warwick castle. From the castle you can take a trip into town and enjoy the rest of the historic sights and even do some shopping, from there you make your return. We highly recommend this walk for families who are looking for a great day out, it’s especially good during the summer months although we suggest going on a weekday to avoid weekend crowds where the footpaths can sometimes get a little busy.
