Nestling in the Hampshire countryside is the small village of Shawford near Winchester.
With the shops on your left, cross the road, and take a leisurely stroll down the banks of the River Itchen towards Twyford and Winchester.
In both summer and winter, this is a beautiful walk with dogs and children. Walk up to the weir, and across the fields, or continue towards Winchester. Envy the stunning big houses on the other side of the river (unless of course yours is bigger!), and be thankful you don’t have to tend the gardens!
When you return towards the car, we would highly recommend The Bridge pub, with outside seating for dogs.
The natural path is very uneven and tree-root ridden, so it may be uncomfortable/difficult for wheelchair access.
