Walking at Ormesby Hall

Visitors enjoying an autumn walk

A good walk is the perfect way to enjoy the changing seasons whether strolling through the woodlands or walking around our tenant farmer’s fields, so make a walk in the estate part of your healthier, happier lifestyle.

The Ormesby estate has 240 acres of woodlands, crop fields, running streams and open fields to explore, so stretch your legs, get the little ones out in nature, walk your four legged friends and enjoy our parkland. Many of the walks take you past our tenant farmer’s fields, where you may see sheep and the spring lambs and horses grazing. 

With beautiful views across the estate you'll see the house from different angles and in different lights, in early morning mist and as the afternoon sun dips low over the trees.

There are three walking routes through the estate, from a gentle walk through the churchyard to a longer walk in Pennyman woods or head into a more unexplored area into the upper fields. The route details are below for your chosen walk, enjoy your time in nature.
