Walking, Cycling & Horse-riding

Hertfordshire is a green county, with half of the county designated by the government as Green Belt. Picturesque woodland, river valleys, and open farmland make up a beautiful and varied landscape.

The county has more than 1,800 miles (3,000 km) of public paths and rights of way, one of which is very close to Cobblestones linking to the extensive network within Benington.

The Hertfordshire Way is a circular 166 mile trail through the green and beautiful Hertfordshire, a county of rich contrasts. The whole route is waymarked at every road crossing and away from the roads there are distinctive waymarking discs to help the walker. Over 97% of the route is on public rights of way on which you have a legal right to walk and the rest is on permissive paths.

The county also has a number of designated cycle paths. For the more adventurous the county’s canals, rivers and lakes provide opportunities for a number of water sports such as sailing and canoeing as well as the more gentle boat cruises that depart from various points through Hertfordshire.
