Spring walks across the estate at Hinton Ampner

This spring, set out on a picturesque stroll away from Hinton Ampner's gardens and into the wider estate fringing the South Downs.

Stroll through our parkland dotted with magnificent trees in fresh spring foliage. Broad footpaths meander through scented bluebell woods, as you discover centuries old battles and pretty villages.

We have a range of walks from an easy walk in the parkland to more extensive forrays out into our wider estate and the surrounding area.
