Pop by 'n say hi!
Arlingham is a delightful, unspoiled Gloucestershire village set in the middle of a horseshoe bend on the River Severn. Arlingham lies in the parish of Stroud and is just a short drive from Stroud, Tewkesbury and the M5 motorway. Its location on a bend in the river Severn makes it an ideal spot for walking, exploring the Gloucestershire countryside and discovering wildlife along the banks of the River Severn. In fact it is a popular place for ramblers. There are several Arlingham walks with a pub and restaurants along the route, making for a great summer day out.
There are four paths around the peninsula set up as part of the Horseshoe Project. All four of these Arlingham walks are circular paths and are colour coded and well signposted. The path names give a hint of the wildlife you might discover on these Arlingham walks: Hare, Gloucestershire Cattle, Skylark and Salmon.
Each of the Arlingham walks is around 4.5 to 5 miles (7 to 8 kilometres) so would take around two-and-a-half hours each, walking at a moderate pace. The walks are not too challenging and the nature and landscapes make the Arlingham walks rewarding.
The paths start at the Red Lion pub (pictured in the post photograph), in the centre of Arlingham and in fact maps and turn by turn guides can be found online, on the Red Lion website. There is also a huge printed map posted outside the Red Lion which shows all four of tehse Arlingham walks. You should also be able to pick up printed copies from inside the pub. The guides are thorough, not just giving detailed directions but also some history and details of the wildlife you can expect to find on the walks.
Access by car is not too difficult. Arlingham is a few minutes drive from the M5. There is a public car park in the village, on Passage Road, just round the corner from the Red Lion. The Red Lion also has a customer car park. If you are looking for somewhere to stay overnight, you might consider the Old Passage in the centre of the village. As well as a bed for the night you will find an award winning menu. Happy walking!
