I thought for this months walk we would revisit the walk to southstoke and manor farm, seen as the weather was soo awful when we did the walk in November. I have made the walk slightly longer this time, so it will be alot more challanging than our last few walks. The walk is about a 3mile round walk and there wil be hills to climb and uneven ground to cover in palces . However if you do have a young pup or elderly hound you can still join us for the first part of the walk, which is flat and then turn around at the millenium point and then meet us at the pub afterwards.
The walk starts on combe hay road which is just off the roundabout by Odddown park and ride, so iv suggested best place to park and meet would be in the actual park and ride (Park up and meet to the left of the main entrance) From there we can take a small walk round to where the walk begins. There will be a small walk at the beginning, crossing a road. The walk is a flat woodland walkto start with, that leads to a lovely view point overlooking the south stoke countryside.Then we take the path down into the bottom of the vally, over a stream and up the otherside. We then join a small country lane that will lead us the the wheatsheaf pup in combe hay. The wheatsheaf is dog friendly and has a nice big garden for us to sit out in if the weather is nice and grab a snack and drink.
I do this walk quiet regulary and it all looks very pretty at the moment . Although the ground is dry i would suggest wearing sutiable footwear walking boots, trianers or wellies.
As always any questions about the walk or how to get there please get in touch!
