Two areas of ancient and quite historic hilly woodland make up most of this delightful country park. Highlighted for its glorious display of bluebells in the Springtime, well worth a visit. Situated on a hillside, there are panoramic views over four counties on a clear day.

BURTON DASSETT HILLS COUNTRY PARK, 10 miles south of Warwick, South Warwickshire CV47 2AB

Unspoilt, rolling hills – that’s what you get at Burton Dassett. If you’ve travelled along the M40 and seen a beacon on top of a hill near j12, then you’ve spotted part of the country park. Whether you’re walking, flying a kite or just relaxing, the magnificent views from these hills are breathtaking.

THE STRATFORD GREENWAY, Stratford-upon-Avon, South Warwickshire CV37 6GR

Part of the former GWR Stratford railway line, this five mile, easy access surfaced track is ideal for walking or cycling. With its views of the Cotswolds, this is an ideal and safe, traffic-free environment for everyone. There are two carriage cafes at this site and cycle hire available. There is currently no parking charge at this site.

UFTON FIELDS NATURE RESERVE, 3 miles south of Leamington Spa CV33 9PU

Many unusual plants thrive on the infertile lime-rich soil at this Nature Reserve, formed after limestone excavations ceased. As well as plants, Ufton is home to 15 types of dragonfly and 28 different butterflies. A mostly flat, circular, surfaced footpath will take walkers around the site. There is no parking charge at this site.


This greenway forms part of Sustrans NCR Route 41, formally part of the Leamington to Rugby railway line. The flat, surfaced footpath and cycleway offers exceptional views across South Warwickshire as users make their way along its one and half mile route.

Access to the site, if arriving by car, should be to the mid point at the Offchurch crossroads, where a small car park is provided. Alternatively, if walking or cycling from the Leamington direction, access is available via the Grand Union Canal towpath at Radford Semele.


This new greenway is the old railway branch line from Berkswell to Kenilworth Junction.

As well as being a linear Country Park, it is a permissive bridleway which means that it can be used by pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders. Kissing gates have been installed to prevent unauthorised access by motorbikes, and horse-riders will need to buy an annual permit and a key to get onto the Greenway. Contact Kingsbury Water Park on 01827 872660 for further information.

The track is segregated with a natural grass track for horses and a firm track for other users.

Mobility Scooters are available on a loan scheme at Kingsbury, Ryton and Pooley but booking is advisable. Birthday parties and school holiday events are available.

Car park charges apply to most parks, for more information visit or call 01827 872660.
