Walks from the Door is a small business that provides bespoke, professional-quality walking guides (on paper and online) to pubs, hotels, B&Bs and similar establishments.

It's the brainchild of Dave Dunford (left), a keen walker and professional writer, editor and web designer. Dave was brought up in Oxfordshire and now lives in northwestern Derbyshire, close to the border with Cheshire. He has many years' experience as a writer and walk leader, and has had seven walking guides published:

Since 2021, Dave has been the regular walking columnist for Cheshire Life magazine.

For many years he was the webmaster for birdguides.com, one of the most innovative and popular websites among British birdwatchers.

If you would like to be kept informed when new establishments and walks are added, please follow Walks from the Door on Facebook.

If you are a landlord or proprietor and would like to discuss a commission (with absolutely no obligation), please see the Landlords page.

I and the rest of my party can't wait to return, hopefully during the summer as there were several free maps on the bar that showed several walking routes from the pub that we would like to try.
