Healthy @ Hughenden

Why not take on our health kick challenge to get the New Year off on the right foot?

Start the month with our Tree Walk. It’s a gentle 20 minute stroll through the formal gardens and pleasure grounds that takes in 10 historical trees at Hughenden.

There are then four waymarked woodland walks for you to take on over the challenge, ranging from the 1 mile Woodcock Wood to the 1.5 mile German Forest walk.

End the challenge with our longest walk. The Boundary Walk takes in 4 miles of beautiful countryside around the Hughenden estate.

And as you get fit and explore the landscape you’ll be helping us to take care of the special places in our care here, for ever, for everyone.
