Walking and exploring the Sherborne Park Estate

Autumn colour at Sherborne Park Estate

There are several walking routes on the estate that you can enjoy and spot some of the wildlife.

The Sherborne estate is home to a wide array of wildlife especially raptors and farmland birds which are declining in numbers elsewhere. You might want to bring your binoculars to spot them.

Whether you'd like to walk for half an hour or over two hours, we have a choice that might suit. Some of them are linked below and maps are available at Ewe Pen Barn. 

Sherborne is a small and lovely village, including the Village Shop & Tea Room (not National Trust). The family walk will take you through the village, as well as the woodland. 

You can join a guided walk through parts of the estate not usually seen, find more details here.

Parking is at Ewe Pen Barn (postcode GL54 3DT) or the Watermeadows car park at Northfield Barn, GL54 3DN.
