A circular walk around Hucking Estate near Maidstone in Kent. Hucking Estate sits within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a beautiful mix of woodland and grassland. In spring and summer there is an abundance of wild flowers to enjoy, whilst autumn visitors will be greeted with an amazing show of autumn colours and all year round there are stunning views across the Weald of Kent. The woodland paths are all wide and well maintained but can be very muddy and slippery in the wetter months, so good boots are a must and wellingtons are recommended in the winter. There are a few gentle slopes throughout. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates and staggered barriers, but there are no stiles. The grassland fields are used for grazing sheep so take care with dogs in these sections. There are several picnic benches within the woodland, but no other facilities. Allow 1.5 hours.

Always a lovely walk, has a great view point and a great pub at the end (The Hook and Hatchet). Would definitely recommend it. The walk & pub are dog friendly so it's ideal.

A nice stroll and a good one to take the kids on. Not too strenuous and the distance was just about right!
