Travelled from Hertfordshire to experience the magic of the parkland walks this National Trust property has to offer. The walks are mostly on flat to terrain with some challenging parts. I spoke to a staff member at reception to discuss which walk would suit myself and a young dog. Koda and I chose to undertake the longest walk known as the woodland walk. This 3 mile walk was to take 1.5 hours to complete and crisscrossed all focal points in the park. This included Reston wood, regency bee house, the orchard, play fields and the suspension bridge. I was able to view The Berwick Memorial, weir and ice house. The walks were simple to follow as the route was marked by coloured markers with a concrete footpath to navigate to the next signpost. There are 5 structured walks around the park; mile walk (30 Minutes) Deer park walk 2miles (1hr), bluebell walk 1.5 miles (45 mins), woodland walk and finally WW11 walk 2 miles (1 hour).
I enjoyed the walk but was unable to visit the house on one of the tours as the tours lasted 75 minutes which would be too long. The gift shop was okay but the cafe was too pricey. I was grateful for my Morrisons' sandwiches and my flask of Yorkshire tea. Remember to bring your lunch, binoculars and camera. I took some great photos here. I was delighted to have received an online voucher enabling me access to any National Trust site free of charge. Simply download a copy of the voucher and write your address details down and then hand it in at the admissions desk. This enabled a family/couple or single person to gain free entry. So, remember to bring your free admission voucher.
