Discover the tranquil beauty of the gently rolling Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on a leisurely walk through meadows, woodland and alongside a pretty meandering river. You start and end outside historic Nunnington Hall, a beautiful Yorkshire manor house (this is a National Trust property so plan your walk with time to visit the house and gardens), nestling on the banks of the River Rye and famed for its picturesque location, organic walled garden with spring-flowering meadows, and flamboyant resident peacocks. Points of interest along the way include Nunnington Hall and gardens; the grade-1 listed parish church of All Saints & St James; and old riverside mill; red telephone boxes and Victorian postboxes in the villages you pass; and Stonegrave Minster, which houses a remarkable collection of heraldry and fragments of ancient crosses. At the beginning and end of the walk you follow the meandering River Rye, home to otters, heron and kingfishers. The walking is straightforward, with gentle gradients, following a combination of field, woodland and riverside footpaths, farm tracks and quiet country lanes.

A nice walk but mainly round fields so not much to look at. Directions are accurate and very easy to follow. A nice flat route with no hills.
