Great place to walk - plenty of footpaths to explore - amazing worldwide collection of trees - hills to climb - ducks to feed on the lake at the bottom - time just evaporates! Well done National Trust! 5* attraction!

We love visiting Winkworth and have been doing so for many years. The vistas are a delight as one rounds every corner and vary with the season. We enjoy taking friends to Winkworth and sharing this local treasure with them!

Such and wonderful place where you can find peace and quiet whilst enjoying a lovely walk. A little hilly in places but worth the effort to experience such diverse horticulture. The sausage rolls in the cafe are first class too!

We enjoyed our visit absolutely beautiful with lovely views. The lake and boat house was particularly interesting. The weather did help as it was a perfect sunny day.

Absolutely stunning place. We’re not National Trust members, we have two teens & live in central London but we’re all blown away by the place - beautiful landscapes, colours & reflections. Plan to go back in the autumn

Very well kept NT property with diverse woodland which is particularly attractive in the Autumn. It is centred around a steep sided valley so there are some steep paths but it is a great place for a gentle stroll.

We walked around here on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Despite the rain it was lovely, the bluebells were just past their next and the azaleas superb. The walks are well laid out and easy to follow. Beautiful tress that will look spectacular come the autumn...More

We’re National Trust members and visited on Bank Holiday Monday. An utterly glorious day so we arrived soon after opening and the overflow car park was already in operation. By using the members’ fast track entry, we didn’t have to queue but it meant we...More

That's a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, without a reference to the speed of walking. I remember it as about 500m, so less than 5 minutes walking for me walking quickly or 10 minutes at a dawdle looking... More
