Nestled in the heart of the Midlands, you’ll find us – Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, located in Harborough Magna, a picturesque village, with plenty on offer for those who are staying with us. And what better than getting outside, taking in the fresh air and enjoying a local scenic walk during your trip? Whether you’re travelling with family, friends or even your four-legged pooches, there’s a walk ready and waiting for everyone to enjoy. The good news is, that both of our luxury safari tents come with their own map of the local area – giving you the perfect opportunity to put your map-reading skills to the test (of course, there’s always the ‘Maps’ app on your smartphone that you can use for back-up).
With that in mind, here are some of the best walks in and around Harborough Magna.
Start the route at The Old Lion, a pub located in Harborough Magna – in fact, just a seven-minute walk from Meadow Field Luxury Glamping. The pub is open every day apart from Monday and Tuesday, so check out their website and see if you can time your walk around a pub lunch or evening meal.
From The Old Lion, cross over farmlands into Easenhall – a quaint, neighbouring village comprised of picturesque countryside and farms. If you fancy, you can break the walk up with a drink at the Golden Lion Hotel. Head to the Oxford Canal, where you can walk down a short stretch of towpaths back towards Harborough Magna.
Harborough Magna – Newbold – Long Lawford Circular (approximately 8 miles)
For a longer route, start from The Old Lion and head into Little Lawford, and down Shakespeare’s Avon Way, before you reach the Oxford Canal at Newbold on Avon. You can then walk back to Harborough Magna, finishing at either the pub or our glamping site.
Rugby Great Central Walk (total route is approximately 4.5 miles)
Rugby’s Great Central Walk is a 4.5 miles route, that was once a mainline railway, which was closed in the 1960s having been constructed by the Victorians. A small section of the line – located between Hillmorton and Newton – is now used as a pathway for pedestrians, cyclists, runners and dog walkers alike. And, while the majority is a tree-lined walkway, you’ll find that an urban chunk of the trail takes you through a built-up area in central Rugby too.
There are plenty of opportunities to join the Great Central Walk, the River Avon, in Brownsover is likely to be the closest to Meadow Field Luxury Glamping.
Situated on the outskirts of Rugby, just a 10-minute drive from Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, you’ll find Swift Valley Nature Reserve. This dog-friendly reserve includes 24 hectares of grassland, decorated with woodland and landscaped wetlands, creating the perfect home for an array of wildlife. If you’re visiting us, Swift Valley Nature Reserve is definitely worth a visit – if only for the ever-changing flowers that help to bring the area to life each season.
Just over a 20-minute drive from Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, you’ll discover Draycote Water, a 240-hectare reservoir and country park. As well as a flat five-mile route around the reservoir (perfect for runners, walkers and cyclists), there’s also a fab play area, restaurant and small on-site shop. There are also plenty of benches and field space available, perfect for those who fancy packing up a picnic for lunch. Complete your visit with a water sport or spot of fishing – but be sure to check their website first, to see what’s available.
Note, if you are planning a trip to Draycote Water, dogs are only permitted in the country park area but not along the reservoir path.
