Great Tew - Ledwell - Little Tew Walk

WalkExplorer

The charming village of Great Tew is a magnet for visitors, with many hidden delights on offer. One of the prettiest villages in Oxfordshire, it has its own visitors' car park and nearby, a wonderful Post Office Stores, selling a tantalizing selection of locally made delicacies and gift items. The famous Falkland Arms pub a few steps away offers food and drink in a cosy atmosphere, with historical artifacts to interest and intrigue. 

From this wonderful setting of thatch and stone, the walk takes a bridleway to follow the dry-stone walling of Great Tew Estate. The countryside en route is truly magnificent, with oft far-reaching views. 

The tiny village of Ledwell is another beautiful setting along the route, before entering fields and meadows again on footpaths and bridleways, passing farms and isolated dwellings. 

Sandford St Martin is skirted, although the estate boundary is followed via the dry-stone walling that is characteristic of these parts. Woodland and copses are passed quite frequently and streams and brooks meander to and fro at various locations along the way. 

It is but a short distance from Little Tew back to Great Tew, but the blend of nature and the handiwork of man is always apparent to be viewed and admired.
