The distance is around five miles, offering constantly changing views of lake and landscape. Glimpses of sailing regattas, Normanton Church, Burley-on-the-Hill House, as well as wildfowl of many kinds justify bringing a pair of binoculars. The Finch’s Arms pub is handy for refreshment on the way home.
The Hotel can supply maps for many other excellent walks further afield, usually involving a 15-minute drive. The circuit of Grimsthorpe Castle and a number of circuits in the hilly country to the west of Oakham are popular walking choices. Closer to home, with the aid of a taxi or lift, part of Rutland Water’s 25-mile circumference walk can be dealt with in a morning or afternoon.
