If you would like to come and see the wildlife at Sherborne Park Estate there are several walking routes for you to enjoy.

There's a choice of walks from between half an hour to over two hours. They are linked below and and maps are available at Ewe Pen Barn if you visit.

Parking is at Ewe Pen Barn (postcode GL54 3DT) and for the Watermeadows at Northfield Barn car park (postcode GL54 3DL)

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

You can also join a guided walk through parts of the estate not usually seen. The walks begin at 10am and are running every other Friday. More details here.

Sherborne is a small and lovely village, including the Village Shop & Tea Room (not National Trust).
