We go several times a year and love it more each time. It's hard to believe this amenity is so close to Norwich and so diverse. With grandchildren who love nature and a daughter and son-in-law who have less free time than they'd like, at every opportunity we hop in the car, pack a picnic, binoculars and cameras a "must"...

This is a lovely farm now largely turned over to wildlife crops, with wide grassy paths kept mown so the public can enjoy Chris Skinner's permissive paths, and join up with the Boudicca Way if they so wish too. An oasis of calm just outside Norwich, parking is easy and free next to Caistor St Edmund church and Venta Icenorum... More

Decided to visit High Ash Farm for a dog walk after reading about it in the Edp. Free parking at the Roman fort then cross the busy road into High Ash Farm. There is a map just as you enter so you can see the different paths you are permitted to use. The paths are wide and well kept and... More

The walks on High Ash farm are a wonderful place to spend a few hours. A great deal of effort has gone in to making the walks interesting and user friendly. Walks are all clearly marked with the occasionally strategically located bench along the way. Lots of wildlife to see, and boards are found along the way with information about... More

Had a great evening walk here. Really nice farmland, quiet and peaceful. Nature signs about birds extra are quite fun. Parked in the Roman Town carpark (just past the church on the right if you're coming from Norwich) and crossed the road. From there you can walk up the hill into the middle of the farmland and choose between woods,... More

I agree with all the rave reviews. Discovering High Ash Farm was a revelation - such an oasis of beautiful countryside and so wonderfully maintained. Chris Skinner is an inspiration. Love it!!!!

High Ash Farm has great permissive footpaths linking with other footpaths and lanes that combine to make a variety of short and longer walks. I have been for a short walk in my lunch break stopping for lunch on a conveniently carved tree and for a longer walk after work on my way home or on a weekend. The Bee... More

Long peaceful walks along grassy tracks through beautiful rolling countryside and gorgeous woodland. The farm is managed for wildlife and has miles of well maintained walks with frequent informative signs. Parking is easy at Caistor roman town and other parking points on the lanes around the farm.

I have walked around High Ash on several weekends and it is such a wonderful place to see wildlife, however i have been very dissapointed as i never seem to see any riders out on horse back. All that wonderfull space and no horse's, such a shame.
