As noted in other comments, an unspoilt woodland heath area rising up to give panoramic views of Oxford. Access from the Eastern by pass. Bliss for walkers, joggers and well behaved dogs. Useful colour coded trails so that you can plan your day. Would be...More

Great for walks - it's huge and the views are stunning. It tends to be a bit upsetting in the winter, but it's absolutely beautiful otherwise and there is many routes to choose from.

Lovely place to take a walk even in winter. With different routes to take that are different distances. There are also leaflets on the local wildlife and trees that you can help yourself to at the gate.

Up the steep hill, past the posh houses, and there you are: high grassland with views out towards Wantage and the hills or down to Cowley and the city, and steep hillsides with tall oaks, birch and beech. Great for kites in a windy spring,...More

This is a great place for a nice walk on a sunny day. Good for walking the dog. There is also plenty of free parking.

Shotover Country Park is situated on top of a residual iron Stone Mountain, hence the rusty red sand. The park offers several walks of varying lengths through well established woodland with views over Oxford. There are picnic areas and ample free parking.

You will find good wide level paths and tracks. I didn't see any wheelchairs, but in my opinion, you will be fine. Check out the Woodland Trust website, you will get plenty of good information.

No catering at shotover. There are pubs in Wheatley like the cricketers but I don't know if they accept dogs. The Mole in Toot Baldon will allow dogs in their beer garden.
