Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

This is the very pretty off road route, entirely on the Haddon Estate, from the Peacock to Haddon Hall and return - which takes you to the top of Coombs Valley, past Bowling Green farm then down to the river Wye and on to Haddon Hall. Peacock guests get a 50% discount on admission tickets to the hall and there is an excellent restaurant for lunch. Then back out the gates, turn right and dip back down onto the footpath which takes you down the river, past Elliottholme Lodge then up Coombs Valley and back to the Peacock.
