Walk Details

Walk up to the information centre from the car park. Take a look around inside  and chat to one of the friendly staff.

Follow the road up to the house.

The track carries on up the hill and into the woods, follow the sign ‘Browns Walk’ to the left. The path carries on through the woodland, and there is a detour on the right up to the ice house .

Turn back down to the ‘Browns Walk’ path and go through the double gates into the deer park. No dogs are allowed from this point on.

The path leads you down to the dragonfly pond, where the boardwalk leads you around the pond and into a wild flower meadow. From the meadow you can see the castle.  Go on and explore its turrets and narrow staircases.

Back down the hill, go through the gate and stop off at the café. Here you can walk back up the hill towards the play area and car park.

A walk suitable for all the family.
