Around the Buckland Abbey estate

Meandering paths through woods and farmland, breathtaking views and an abundance of wildlife. 

Woodland walks

Blow away the cobwebs this Winter and choose one of the three waymarked paths, varying in length from 1 mile to 3 miles for a great woodland walk.

Which walks are best?

For a shorter walk or a quick trek around, the yellow route wold be the best. This is about a mile long and suitable for push chairs and wheelchairs.

The red route is about 2.5 miles long and is the most picturesque. 

For a longer and more distanced walk, the blue route through the woodlands over looking the river is glorious this time of year.

Bringing your dog

Dogs are welcome on all of the estate walks, but we would ask that you keep your four legged friend on a lead.

Tramper Hire

Please note, the tramper is not available for hire until further notice. 

We want to ensure that all visitors get to see as much of Buckland Abbey as possible, so if you find walking very far a bit tricky, why not ask about hiring our Tramper? It's an off road mobility scooter which can be taken around the gardens and the yellow estate walk. For more details give us a call on 01822 856045
