Exploring the woodland at Dudmaston

Visitors sat on a bench in the woodland at Dudmaston

There are 3,000 acres of unspoilt countryside to explore through the Dudmaston estate. Enjoy circular woodland walks with plenty of views to discover.

Dudmaston has lots to offer with managed woodlands, beautiful walks and tranquil pools - a real haven for wildlife. The estate is run sustainably with conservation at the heart of everything we do. If a tree has to be removed every piece of it is used, whether for logs, furniture or woodchip for our boilers - nothing goes to waste.  We are currently undertaking a programme of thinning in the Dingle, uncovering the views unseen for over 200 years. What new views will you discover?

Get walking

We have a number of walking routes on the estate. Whether you’re looking for a half-hour stroll through the Dingle or a two-hour ramble across the estate, we have something to offer. All our routes are way marked and easy to follow. Leave your car at Heath Farm, Hampton Loade or The Sawmill carpark and enjoy a walk through the Shropshire countryside.
