Parking: either free on street or the village pay and display.
Begin in the Courtyard by the Clocktower and head to the gate in the right-hand corner of the courtyard. Then, follow the path round and turn right at the junction towards the urn and west wood. Once at the urn take the path on your left past the adventure playground and down a steep hill.
At the bottom of the hill, go left and follow the path. After, go straight on down the hill towards the River Wansbeck. Cross the river at Trout Bridge and carry on along the path. Take in the view where the wood clears on your left.
Go underneath Paine’s bridge and over the stile following the grassy path alongside the river.
Cross the stepping stones, and walk up the field towards the road going through the kissing gate. Once on the road cross over to the left side and through the gate signposted for the walled garden, then follow the path up into the orchard and through the gate at the top into the walled garden.
Take a look around the beautiful walled garden then make your way out past the conservatory and out of the Neptune gate.
Once out of the walled garden, walk around the right side of the garden pond, follow the path straight over heading back to the house and courtyard.
Take care when crossing over the road and continue to follow the path where you will see the house in front of you and the courtyard on your right.
