Winter walks at Sheffield Park and Garden
There's nothing quite like wrapping up for a crisp winter walk, so put on your gloves and scarf and come and see Sheffield Park in this dramatic season. With a choice of pathways to keep your boots clean, or woodland and parkland to get your boots dirty, there's a route to suit everyone.
Winding paths provide easy access and lead you around the lakes of this landscape garden which covers over 120 acres. Take in the historic Pulham falls (Tuesdays and Fridays at 12pm) and see this unique and world-renowned collection of trees in their winter sculptural beauty.
Pick up a map at reception and set off to discover our historic parkland. The 1.5 mile circular walk takes you past Ringwood Roll natural playtrail, Skyglade and our Second World War pillbox. Explore further by venturing down to the River Ouse where you will find the remains of an 18th century lock and our wildlife haven. Don't forget your wellies.
Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden after 1.30pm or in the parkland all day. To walk your dog off-lead, follow the estate road to East Park where you can enjoy views back across the lake into the garden.
The tearoom is open daily* serving welcoming drinks, snacks, sandwiches and hot lunches (served between 12 and 2.30pm), as well as cakes, biscuits and afternoon tea, all of which can be enjoyed beside the roaring log fire.
Dogs are also welcome in the Garden Room of the tearoom, which can be accessed around the side of the building through the french doors.
