Summer walks at Mottisfont

Experience our grounds with a free guided walk, or simply stroll along winding paths throughout the gardens. If you fancy a a longer walk, head out into our neighbouring countryside with one of our estate trails, where you can discover butterflies and swathes of wildflowers.

Walk around the grounds

Gentle, shaded paths follow the waterways through our grounds, from the delicate font stream to the clear, deep waters of the River Test. Look out for trout sunning themselves in the clear waters.

There are two cafés at Mottisfont, perfect for refreshments.
