Farleigh Wallop Woodland Walk

Farleigh Wallop Woodland Walk

Registration is now open!

Join us on either our 5 or 10 mile country walk through the exclusive grounds of the prestigious Portsmouth Estate at this year’s Farleigh Wallop Woodland Walk on Sunday 5th April. Throughout the walk, you will be surrounded by bluebells and glorious views of the Hampshire countryside, before being greeted with a well-deserved cream tea upon your return.

Due to capacity restrictions we have a limit of 500 places available, which will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. You are very welcome to bring your dogs along with you, however, as the event is on a private estate, please ensure they are kept on a lead at all times and you dispose of any mess.

The Farleigh Estate has a huge amount of history. If you decide to walk the 5 mile route, you will pass by St. Andrew Church which now stands in isolation. Back in the 17th Century, the area around the Church was the village of Farleigh Wallop; however, the houses are believed to have been destroyed during the Civil War.

On both routes, you will see a glimpse of Farleigh House, where Lord Lymington currently resides. The Farleigh Estate has been in the Wallop family since 1430, however, the house was rebuilt in 1730 following a fire. In 1954, it became a prep school for boys until Quentin Wallop modernised the house and gardens living with his family from 1989 – 2014.

Entry Fee:

Adult: £15.00

Child: £8.00

Family (2 adults + 2 children): £34.00

Please be aware that there are stiles on both the routes, making our walks unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
