Summer walks around Hinton Ampner

Hinton Ampner's Woodland Walk

By now the leaves on the trees cast more shadow in the woodlands with pockets of sunlight breaking through to the floor allowing flowers like foxglove and honeysuckle to thrive. Explore Hinton Ampner's wider estate and set out on a picturesque stroll fringing the South Downs; why not take a picnic and make the most of the great British summer. 

Stroll through our parkland dotted with magnificent trees. Broad footpaths meander through the estate and woodland, 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.
