Walks at Berrington Hall

Make some time to breathe in the fresh air and discover somewhere new. The parkland is full of walks for the adventurous and those who just want to enjoy being outdoors. With wildlife to see, countryside to explore and a tea-room to visit, there’s so much to do on a walk here at Berrington.

One of the Georgians favourite pastimes was to ‘take a turn’ in the countryside. That is why ‘Capability’ Brown designed the parkland and pleasure grounds at Berrington to be so grand. Now, 220 years later, the parkland is still somewhere to explore, enjoy and escape to.

Walks for families

We have walks for people of all ages. On our family walk we have plenty of opportunities to ‘let your wild side out’ or may tick off some of your ‘50 things’ items.

For those who have little legs, there are shorter walks with a Natural Play Area at the end. For those who want to make their own mark and find something different, there is a chance to test your den building skills in the woodland.

Walks for all

There are acres of parkland surrounding Berrington that can be enjoyed by all. There is plenty to see, from a 14-acre man-made lake to spot swans on, to woodlands to explore. You can also see the surrounding county for miles ahead, with sights of the Welsh mountains from the west side of the mansion.

After your walk you could always warm up with a refreshment from the tea-room. With a choice of freshly baked cakes and seasonal hot meals, it’s a great way to treat yourself after a long walk.

'Genius Loci' by Red Earth

In 2016 we were joined by environmental artists 'Red Earth'. They created a series of installations throughout the parkland called 'Genius Loci'. This was done to celebrate 300 years of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown's landscapes, as well as Berrington's connection to him. Although Red Earth's installations are no-longer in the parkland, we think the meaning behind them ought to be shared with you. We hope you enjoy this video:
