A 3 mile circular pub walk from The Upton Inn in Upton Cheyney, near Bitton in Somerset. An interesting, undulating walk from the delightful village of Upton Cheyney across the hills above Bath and Bristol. Good views and variety of wildlife to enjoy.

The walk has several slopes throughout and follows mainly woodland and field paths which can get very muddy after wet weather. You are likely to be sharing the fields with both sheep and cattle (so take care with dogs) and you'll probably also have chance to meet alpacas and donkeys in the fields adjoining the paths. There are several kissing gates on route plus six stiles. The Upton Inn serves a great selection of food and drink and dogs are also welcome in the bar area. Approximate time 70-90 minutes.

The walk starts and finishes at The Upton Inn on Brewery Hill in Upton Cheyney. Upton Cheyney is a tiny village south east of Bristol close to the larger village of Bitton. Approximate post code BS30 6LY.

A lovely walk with a fantastic pub. Good food and welcoming hosts.

Most, if not all, stiles are now gates but the paths are still steep and liable to be slippy after wet weather. Nice walk and good pub food and ale.
