Wallington Farm walk

This gently undulating circular walk takes you through woodland, grassy fields and across two of Wallington's estate farms – Broom House and Prior Hall.

A designed landscape

Covering over 13,500 acres, the Wallington Estate is one of the largest in our care, incorporating the house, grounds and 15 farms. Broom House and Prior Hall are two of the farms on the estate that are particularly important – they sit directly next to Wallington and are part of the designed landscape created by Sir Walter Calverley Blackett in the 1740s.

Start point

Step 1

Starting in the main car park, head to the top-right corner and a kissing gate. Go through the gate and follow the path downhill to a second gate. From here, head up through a newly planted wood and follow the markers to eventually come out on the Broom House Road.

Step 2

Cross the Broom House Road and enter the field via a kissing gate. Turn left and follow the path with the hedge on your left. Follow the path as it turns right and ascends a hill with good views over to Cambo village.

Step 3

Navigate two sets of gates and continue to climb uphill with a hedgerow and stream on your right.

Step 4

When you reach the top of the field turn left and follow the path along an old hedge line.

Step 5

Enter the 'Black Belt' via a stone stile, being aware of cyclists using the Wallington cycle trail, coming downhill from your right. Cross over the cycle trail and exit the wood via a second stone stile. Follow the path with an old hedgerow on your right to the next woodland.

Step 6

At this point the walk uses the Wallington cycle trail, so head through a gate and enter the woodland on a hardened pathway. Any cyclists will be coming uphill towards you as you walk downhill through Upper Huntley, an old woodland shelter belt. Please give way to cyclists and use the grass margins of the track as necessary.

Step 7

At the bottom of Upper Huntley exit via a gate and cross the Broom House Road. Continue the walk by entering a kissing gate and turning left. Follow the waymarkers and the path, which eventually enters another wood, the Fountain Plantation.

Step 8

Enter the wood via a kissing gate and follow the path through trees, which eventually comes to a boardwalk.

Step 9

From the boardwalk, you will again briefly share a section of the Wallington cycle trail. Cross over the stream via a large bridge and take the path straight in front of you. Follow the waymarkers as the walk passes through two fields and eventually brings you back to the start of the walk.
