Follow the river through the gardens, then cross the fields behind the house, before returning to the grounds via the stableblock. This is a pretty walk and perfect for families, being quite short and relatively close to the house. It’s suitable for all terrain buggies, and takes in Mottisfont’s Wild Play area, which has big wooden structures built for climbing, balancing and exploring.
A five minute drive from Mottisfont brings you to Spearywell woods where there’s a colour-coded 1.2 mile circular cycle route developed specially with families in mind, as well as a 2.5 mile route. Older families can try the six mile waymarked walking trail through ancient farmland and woodland, and along quiet country lanes.
Distance: The three trails, varying in length from 1.2 miles to 6 miles
Car Parking: Parking at Spearywell car park
