If you fancy stretching your legs, you are spoilt for choice in the local area. As well as numerous local footpaths (including those to the nearby villages and their pubs), Cambridgeshire Lakes is situated right by the Greensand Ridge Walk. The walk is a long-distance walk of 40 miles (64 km) that crosses Bedfordshire, with brief sections in Cambridgeshire and Buckinghamshire.

From its southern endpoint at Leighton Buzzard the route runs north-west to Gamlingay, following the Greensand Ridge, a distinctive feature that rises from surrounding clay vales to give a landscape of gently rolling hills and small valleys, often heavily wooded and rich in wildlife.
