A circular 3.8 mile trundle that passes woodland, fields, lakes and Clavering Mills. This route will take you around an hour and a half, depending on whether you decide to explore Clavering Lakes as you pass by, which will take a little longer. This route is super dog friendly with lots of opportunity for some off-lead adventures. There is also an opportunity to brush up on your history as you pass Clavering Mills, two of the original three still stand and date back to 1757.


The Paddock Pass is the shorter of our two walking maps that explore the rural landscape around our pub (The Studland Stomp is the longer one). A 1.5 mile circular route that will take around 30 minutes depending on your pace, a route where wellies are recommend almost all year round. The walk is lined by hedgerow and passes horse paddocks along the way - you'll definitely meet a horse or two. There are stretches where well behaved dogs can be off lead, but keep an eye out for signs that indicate when leads are required.

The Crown, Stoke by Nayland

A 5.5 mile ramble that skirts the River Box, farmland and the Dedham Vale AONB countryside. This route can take around two hours, mostly over countryside and riverbank, there is some country road walking too. A point of interest along the way include the Church of St. Mary, one of Suffolk's largest churches that dates back to 10th century. This one requires a pair of sturdy walking boots.


A scenic 2.8 mile route that will take around 2 hours (longer if you stop off for tea and cake in Letheringsett). This route explores Holt Country Park, Sprout Hills Pond and passes Norfolk's last remaining Water Mill. There are plenty of spots for dogs to enjoy some off lead fun, although some of this route is roadside where leads are a must. Once you've explored the countryside we recommend Holt's Owl Trail through the town, a great way to learn about Holt history.

Printed walking maps with full route descriptions can be picked up from our pubs or found on our websites for a digital view. Always wear appropriate footwear for these walks, pack a bottle of water and your dog poo bags (bins can be found along the route or back at the pubs).
