Winter walking on the estate; an Astor family tradition

It was an Astor family tradition to walk the estate around Christmas time, and now you can make it part of your family tradition too. With 300 acres of natural woodlands to explore, there's lots to discover whilst enjoying some much needed fresh air. Stroll along the dog-friendly paths  to take in the winter views of the Berkshire country side..

Families may want to head to the natural play trail where around every corner there’s a new challenge to test children’s exploring, balancing and den building skills. Make sure you find ‘Clive’s Den’, an oversized hide-out constructed by Cliveden’s rangers, complete with picnic tables.
