Beningbrough Newton walk

Walking trail

Follow the pink way-markers for this walk through parkland and woods with two great options to extend your wanders using Larch walk and into Newton-on-Ouse village.

Good to know

Please use the car park, even if you are only visiting the parkland. For everyone's safety, avoid parking in passing places, on embankments or close to neighbouring drives. For your safety and to protect the cattle and calves, please stay on the footpaths and avoid roaming across the fields. Livestock can be seen in the parkland for much of the year. They belong to the tenant farmer who also runs Home Farm Café. Take care when the cows are in the fields and please be aware the bull may be there too. This walk shares the pathway with traffic unless you decide to turn round and walk back the same way – the views are quite different so worth considering.

Start in the car park, with your back to admissions, head diagonally across the car park towards the gate in the far-right hand corner. Go through the gate and follow the path towards the farm shop. With the farm shop on your right-hand side, carry along to your left along the tarmac road, leaving the farm shop behind you.

Optional Loop: If you want to extend your walk through the Larch walk, before entering the picnic area, enter the woods through the gate on your right. Either follow the wooded path round and turn back once you reach the metal gate or, alternatively, once you reach the same point (where the road intersects the two wooded areas), turn right and follow the road back towards Home Farm, re-joining the trail from step 2.
