Walk this way

Try our two estate walks © N

Expand your horizons and get out and about on Tyntesfield’s historic estate. Free to explore, we have two great walks: the Plantation walk and Sidelands walk. Each trail takes approximately 45 minutes.

Plantation walk

There are over 150 native and exotic species in Tyntesfield's steep woodland. The uphill walking, which follows the original routes of the Victorian carriage rides, is well worth it. You’ll be generously rewarded with viewpoints overlooking the Yeo Valley below. Inspired? Pick up a leaflet at Home Farm visitor centre.

Sidelands walk

Discover more of the historic park on this walk. It’s one of the best trails to take in spring, when the ground in Truckle Wood is a carpet of bluebells, primroses and wood anemones. In autumn, spot tiny fungi underfoot. Over 750 species have been identified on the estate. Inspired? Pick up a leaflet at Home Farm visitor centre.
