With The Granary Hotel as your base, it’s easy to explore the great outdoors – with lots of great routes for rambling, hiking and more. As the crow flies, The Cotswolds are a mere 25 miles from the Granary Hotel. If you wish to spend more time in the open air, and less driving, there are wonderful alternatives on our doorstep. The Fawsley Estate is home to many walking trails. Around Fawsley and Daventry, the hills and vales are crossed by well-used footpaths, beloved by ramblers and hikers. These take in riversides, coppices, slumbering villages and tiny hamlets. A particular favourite with our regular walkers is the Knightly Way Walk. Close to Northampton, Hazelborough Wood is an ancient woodland site, with pathways open to the public. Hazelborough is forested with stretches of with ancient oak trees, as well as more recent conifer plantations. Northamptonshire is also fortunate enough to have Fineshade Wood within its borders. As well as its signposted trails, the woodland provides a cafe for weary walkers, and water for dogs.
To the North East, Rockingham Forest park offers wide expanses of woodland, meadows, thickets, ponds and marshes. There is a very pleasant cafe, should walkers feel like stopping for a bite to eat.
Once you arrive feel free to ask our reception staff for a copy of our walking guides.
