A circular walk following footpaths and bridleways around the Hinton Ampner estate in Hampshire. The walk follows the local ridge with outstanding views of the South Downs, before heading south into beautiful sections of mixed woodland that are known for displays of bluebells and wood anemones. The return leg leads you along the edge of Hinton Ampner park, with views of Hinton Ampner House. Assuming you park in the correct place, this walk avoids the formal gardens and so there is no entrance fee payable for the National Trust site of Hinton Ampner. The walk follows a mixture of field-edge and woodland paths, with some sections that can become muddy. You will need to negotiate several gates and kissing gates, but there are no stiles on route. You will only cross one livestock pasture (usually holding sheep) and the path is normally fenced from the main pasture with electric fencing. Allow 2 hours.

Lovely walk through fields and woods then back round by the side of the house , you can park in the house car park. You don’t have to pay unless you go into the gardens,

Lovely scenery throughout. Dogs must be on leads for the beginning as there’s livestock for the first 10 minutes. A lot of bluebell patches throughout the woods, great for pictures. No signage for car parking but we did find a small field next to it that we parked in. Took us roughly 1h30m.

You can basically follow the gold signs all the way round. It's the official walk from the National Trust property

Absolutely stunning walk from start to finish and bluebells out of this world!

This is a nice easy walk with no difficult inclines and no need to walk on any roads. We did this in late March and the bluebells were only just starting to flower. With so many bluebell woods along the walk April would be perfect to see them at their best.
