Winter walks at Knightshayes

What better way to enjoy Knightshayes in the winter, than with a refreshing, energising walk. From crunching through the leaves, wrapped up in cosy knits in the woodland, to stepping across the sparkling, frosty parkland- there's plenty of walks. The stables café will be serving the delicious homemade carveries from the first Sunday in Novermber, if you fancy finishing up a lovely family walk with some scrumptious warm food. Also, from 1 November to 28 February, dogs on leads can come along and join you exploring the woodland garden. Pick up a welcome map at reception to see the various routes around the garden you can choose from.
