This is a National Trust property and is a gem throughout the year. We visited in April and caught the bluebells providing a blue carpet through the wooded slopes of WInkworth. There are rhodedendrons and azaleas a plenty and its a wonderland for those who enjoy identifying trees, shrubs, flowers and wildlife. There are walks a plenty, many with steps and slopes but wheelchair access is possible with a little effort on the less steep slopes. Several routes are identified and a charming lake and wetland area awaits at the bottom of the valley in which Winkworth is set.
Ideal for children who can run free and enjoy hide and seek or just enjoy the views. A picnic is a great idea but there is a good tea room offering snacks and hot meals at the entrance. There are plenty of photo opportunities at most times of teh year so a camera is a must.
We spent two to three hours here but you can tailor your visit for anything between an hour (direct walk to teh lake and back) to almost a whole day for a leisurely walk and picnic.
