A Hardy Wiltshire Walk

Wild Wiltshire Walks with Thomas Hardy

Walk through the Wiltshire wilds that have inspired the likes of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles. We’re on the path of the great Wessex Ridegway which runs 138 miles from Marlborough in Wiltshire to Lyme Regis on the Dorset coast. In our stretch of beautiful trail, you can enjoy the billowy chalk downs and rolling hills of the Cranborne Chase, one of the UK’s designated Areas of Natural Beauty. Pre-book your lunch with us ahead of time and you’ll be able to leave your car in our private car park* and enjoy the Way in the morning light before rewarding yourself with a delicious country lunch.
