Trails & Walks at Burton Constable
To make the most of our grounds, we have alternate trails for you to adventure upon. Not only does this encourage being in our wide open space but to exercise too.
At just under 3 km in total distance, this trail is a family favourite. On route, you have to find all of the animal sculptures and tick them off, along with trying to spot other fascinating nature and incredible wildlife.The great thing about this particular trail is the ever-changing seasons which make it a new adventure each and every time.
Explore the historic parkland of Burton Constable by tracking down each waymarker at different parkland features including the Ha-ha and Orangery. Take a rubbing from each one to spell out a word - a nice activity for the family to complete!
Taking around 40 minutes to complete, this walk takes you through the shaded pathway and is serenaded either side by towering trees. Continue towards the woodland and be welcomed by the South Lake on the other side. This is a perfect stroll to stretch the legs and take in the scenery beyond the House and Stable Block.
Cut across the cow field and take the most direct route to the lakes. Head whichever way you wish but be sure to cross over the breath-taking Capability Brown Bridge. A full lap around the perimeter, through the woodland, past the Menagerie and back the way you came should take around an hour in total.
We recommended you explore the Winter Parkland Walk during the winter to avoid confrontation with cattle! Meander beyond the North Pond and it’s bee hives, make your way through site of the deserted medieval village of Burton Constable and circle back up the main entrance drive towards the House.
If it's wide open space you require, take a stroll down through our East park towards the tree clusters along the main road and loop back around the natural wildlife pond and via the alpacas before heading back towards our Stables.
Challenge yourself to complete a whole 5K and take in all of the best bits from the walks and trails above! Whether you walk or run, in the sunshine or in the rain, Burton Constable is a great place to visit for exercise and natural beauty.
If you are going to join us for an adventure, be sure you stop along the way and absorb the picturesque scenery and stop off for refreshments in our fantastic Stables Kitchen. What’s more is that we’re a dog friendly site (including Doggy Dining), so you can bring your four legged friends along for the journey (as long as they remain on their lead and you are responsible for any dog waste).
