Walks on the estate at Hinton Ampner

The ancient avenue of lime trees at Hinton Ampner

Enjoy the warm summer weather with four beautiful walks on the Hinton Ampner estate overlooking the South Downs countryside, of varying lengths and ease over rolling farmland and through ancient woods

Take a picture of our estate walks routes on the board by the church and let the adventure begin. As you wander, you’ll come across ancient woodland that’s home to rare native flora and fauna, like the barbastelle bat. Explore beech avenues that stretch as far as the eye can see, and endless views over the South Downs. 

A short stroll can be taken on a 2-mile trail, or for the more adventurous there's a 4-mile trail around the Hinton Ampner estate. To spot some of the oldest, veteran trees on the estate, an ancient tree trail will take you across the parkland.
