  • A gtreat place to visit especially in good weather. Big wheel brilliant. Avon cruise Good. Local walks good. Parks good. We had a great time  more »
  • We cycled along here 2 weeks ago as a family of 4 and whilst the cycle is easy and flat we ended up with sizeable thorns obviously from recently cut hawthorn trees in 2 of our tyres which was very fru...  more »
  • The greenway is a fine exit for cyclists who tour the cotswold region. The entry / exit gates at road crossings require some effort and experience for efficient use.  more »

  • Great place to visit. If you park your car at time of this review it will cost you £3.50 all day. The place where i park is just next to the race course. You will find bike hire and a small friendly cafe here both situated in oldd train carriages. About 2.25 miles down the walk you will find another carriage cafe. Follow the walk and it is about 7 miles each way. At about 5 miles along is Long Marston with a great pub and serving good meals.
  • A pleasant walk way to take the children and walk the dog, also enjoyed by cyclists and joggers. It is possible to access the racecourse on foot from here as well. The car park does charge a small fee, depending on how long you're thinking of staying. There's a cafe, cycle hire and a small constructed play area for children.
  • Beautiful place for a walk or bike ride. Lovely cafe in old railway carriages.
  • Well maintained and flat cycle path. It is a bit short but there are trails and quiet roads feeding off it. We hired bikes from Stratford Bike Hire. Phoned ahead and reserved bikes for the afternoon. It wasn't busy which was a plus but, to be honest, not much to see along the trail. Also despite what one review says, parking is not free at the start of the trail. It is £4 for 4+ hours.
  • Plenty of free parking at the start of this cycle trail. Also here is cycle hire and an excellent cafe inside old trail railway carriages. Fairly flat and well surfaced trail runs out past the race course and over the Avon. Trail ends in Long Marston where there is a very nice pub. You can extend the ride by circling around the Welford area on quiet roads and chocolate box top villages.
