Planning your visit

Walking routes

Crunch through piles of crispy leaves this autumn, revelling in the beautiful shades of gold, amber and red. Click here to choose the perfect route for you, whether it's a short amble or a longer trek. 

Family visits

Splash in muddy puddles, gather up fallen leaves and enjoy a game of hide and seek among the trees this autumn. 

Kids will love a stop off at the Tree Adventure, a natural play area complete with a mini climbing wall, rope tunnel and a fireman's pole. Younger ones can have a go at the Natural Play area, with smaller climbing frames and balancing beams to explore. 

We ask that bikes, scooters and ball games are left at home due to the steep slopes and open water onsite.

Dr. Fox used plants to paint a picture in the landscape, choosing trees with leaves which would turn vivid shades of golden and red during autumn. Can you spot these colours on your walk around Winkworth?
