Festive woodland walks
Winter is a perfect time to wrap up warm, throw on some wellies and go for a woodland walk.
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?
The Yellow Route - Easy
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. This route is currently a 10-15 minute 'There and back again walk'.
The Red Route - Medium
The red route is about 2.5 miles long and is the most picturesque and takes you through the fields and woodlands. Thid route can get quite muddy, especially after heavy rain, so remember to pack the wellies.
Walking boots are reccomended for this walk, as the paths can be uneven through the woods.
This walk will take around 45 minutes to complete.
The Blue Route - Hard
For a longer and more distanced walk, the blue route through the woodlands over looking the river is glorious this time of year.
Walking boots are essential for this walk an will take about 1.30hrs to finish.
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.
We do not have any dog poo bins onsite. If your dog has an accident whilst you are walking please either 'Stick and Flick' into the hedgerow or pick it up and dispose at home.
To dry off those muddy paws, why not head to the restaurant for a hot chocolate or two...or even a dog biscuit?
Children's play area
Please note that the Higher Paddock play area is currently closed.
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
