Hot day, out of town, into the countryside for a gentle stroll around picturesque fields, woods and shady pathways. Very intelligent and helpful greeting at the entrance kiosk, handy map and advice. I think it will be even better when we go back in autumn, to see the famous foliage... or perhaps in spring, for the azaleas. Relaxing, lovely cup... More

We've been to Westonbirt and Batsford Arboretums and enjoyed the walks, esp in the case of Westonbirt in autumn with its huge acer collection. We hadn't been to Winkworth and as we are National Trust members thought it was worth a try. What we had not expected was the hilly terrain. Both the others were completely flat. Nevertheless we enjoyed... More

First time I have visited this NT gem. A wonderful place - quiet, uncomplicated, with nature. Even on Sunday lunchtime in good weather, was not busy at all. Will for sure return. Along with NT Hatchlands, my joint favorite NT place locally.

Having read so many great reviews my wife and I thought to give this place a go as we're NT members. Basically it's a walk through the woods, much like any other wood in the area. Some of the paths are very steep and uneven and not suitable for the unsure of foot. There is a path that is accessible... More

Vast area of countryside woodland. Many walks but some have rough underfoot conditions and many steps. All walks graded with regard to walkers physical ability. Some steep sharply curved slopes could do with handrails. Small food facility and clean toilets. Best time to go probably spring or to admire Autumn tints. Some areas could be potentially hazardous for small children... More

We stopped here on our way to London to break the journey. We had a wonderful walk through the meadow, along the lake and then through their trees. Really peaceful and a great place to stretch the legs and see nature.

This is a tranquil, relaxing area with a diverse range of things to see. Lovely forest, with a range of trees from many countries, lake, woodland meadows, boat shed, some challenging walking tracks, rhododendrims & camellias. We went on a perfect summers day but I would love to revisit in the Autumn just to see the colours. Dr Fox the... More

Visited with family including small children. Nice 1.5 mile hike thru the woods and hills. Plenty of entertainment for all. Highly recommended.
