Come prepared

This route can get quite muddy in wet weather, so make sure you bring suitable footwear.

Step 3

When you get to the road, follow it to the right. Continue up the hill, past the car park to the chapel.

After exploring the chapel, turn left into the field and follow the path that skirts around the building. When you reach the road, turn right and follow it for a short distance before turning left into the field.

Step 5

Follow the path through the field and into the next field. You'll cross over the driveway and into a third field. Look out for the sheep and cows that graze the estate.

Step 6

You'll enter a wooded area, where you'll see Lawn Pool in front of you. Continue on the path around the pool and cross the stream. Begin descending the hill through the field. Don't forget to have a break and admire the views.

Step 7

When you come to a path, follow it to the left, back into Lookout Wood. Cross the stream and continue until you reach the road. Follow the path as it runs alongside the road, down the hill and through the woodland. Pass through the gate into the field towards the manor house.
