Winter walks Polesden Lacey

Although nature is resting, there is plenty to enjoy out on the estate in winter. Trees stripped of their leaves cast skeletal shadows on frosty ground. Enjoy bright purple crocuses that add a splash of colour to the ground and the bright Robins hopping along the branches above you.

Why not stop off in the coffee shop or cafe to warm up after you've worked up an appetite on your walk? Refuel with a sandwich, hot meal or drink, or a slice of cake. All the profits we make in our cafe and coffee shop go towards helping us care for this special place - thank you.
