WALKING ON THE ESTATE

Walking

Explore the beautiful landscape of the Lincolnshire Wolds at a gentle pace with a series of walks and hikes across South Ormsby Estate.

From the ‘Wesley Walk’ to the ‘Skipwith Stride’, the estate has walking routes for all skill levels, with more routes being planned.

The walks below are some of the most popular routes through the estate, taking in some of the most beautiful views and trailing past open fields and secluded woodland.

Our walks will take you past a wide variety of flora and fauna which change with the seasons, so it’s always worth doing a walk again at a different time of year to see how much it’s transformed.

Some walks are more difficult than others so make sure that you’re appropriately prepared with the right shoes, clothing and equipment. Bring plenty of water, a fully charged phone… and don’t forget to check the weather!
