Rosalie Chichester bequeathed the Arlington estate to the National Trust in 1949, with the express desire that visitors should enjoy the outdoors. There are over 20 miles of footpaths to explore, ranging from the easy 1.75 miles of the lake walk, to the more demanding 5 miles of the Loxhore Cott and Webber's Wood walk. Whichever paths you travel you can be sure of beautiful surroundings, peaceful paths and unexpected surprises.
