Herstmonceux Garden is situated within 600 acres of land with 300 acres of walkable woodland.

Although we make sure the paths are safe along the woodland trail, our estate team manage our woodland with diversity and nature in mind. Fallen trees are usually stacked to create habitats for small creatures, thick wild hedges are left relatively untouched to give safe passage to the animals that call our grounds their home. Surveys are conducted before we undertake any disruptive work.

With this ethos we hope you will enjoy a peaceful walk around the woodland, maybe even see some natural wildlife.

“Nice woodland walk, small adventure playground, impressive castle and gardens. We bought a ticket for both the gardens and science centre and spent all day at both…well worth a visit for the price.”
