Walk Details
This walk around Mottisfont estate has something for everyone. Discover our beautiful and diverse estate on a varied walk through ancient woodlands, historic farmland and along the crystal-clear River Test.

The National Trust acquired Mottisfont estate in 1957 from Mrs Maud Russell, which includes the Abbey (house), gardens, woodlands, rivers and farmlands over 648 hectares (1645 acres). The land has been managed as a traditional working estate since 1500 and the countryside team here at Mottisfont manages 2227 hectares (5500 acres) to maintain access, enhance wildlife habitats and preserve the landscape.

It is a beautiful place to go throughout the year but they do have a spectacular bluebell display in Spring, between April to May.
