Rutland Walking & Cycling Festival + accommodation offers!

Come to Rutland and enjoy the Active Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival from 18th May – 1st June 2013!

The Festival is a celebration of Rutland’s beautiful landscape and the many walks and cycle routes in and around Rutland. The walks and cycle rides are all led by qualified volunteer walk and bike leaders, making this festival free!

The first week of walking (18th-25th May) offers a variety of different length walks at different times and locations around Rutland. The second week (26th May – 1st June) will offer the 7 sections of the Rutland Round over those 7 days.

With two of the walks starting and finishing at Greetham Valley, it is the perfect excuse to pop in for some well-earned refreshments in our lounge bar!

Over the two weeks there will also be cycle rides to suit everyone, ranging from family to nature rides and even a led cycle ride around the whole of Rutland Water, including the Hambleton Peninsula. There really is something for everyone!

Rutland is the perfect place for walking, and has long attracted ramblers, who enjoy finding their way around the tiny villages, little known tracks and country lanes. As well as the popular Rutland Water there are many other footpaths covering varied terrain with several famous walking routes as well:

The Macmillan Way was originally developed to raise money for Cancer Research, and was opened as a fully signed and waymarked route in 1996. This route passes the south banks of Rutland Water.

The Viking Way winds its way southwards from the Humber Bridge, through the Lincolnshire Wolds and finishes in Oakham.

The Hereward Way follows a path through Rutland, passing through villages including Empingham, Whitwell and Barnsdale, before reaching Oakham.

The Jurassic Way follows the band of Jurassic Limestone that runs along the northern boundary of Northamptonshire, along the Oxford Canal, via Middleton Cheney and Woodford Halse to Braunston on the Grand Union Canal. Here it passes between Market Harborough and Corby, following the Welland Valley to Rockingham with its castle.

Full details of the free events can be found in the Active Rutland Walking and Cycling Brochure, click here for details. Why not make a ‘Staycation’ of it and enjoy accommodation at Greetham Valley? We are offering some great late deals on self-catering and B&B breaks during the festival, starting at just £15 per person per night!
