New multi-use trail at Kingston Lacy  “The trail passes through beautiful forest and along old carriage drives that were originally created by the Bankes family. The 4.7 km flat route is suitable for walkers, runners, users of adapted wheelchairs and cyclists of all ages and abilities. The trail is also ideal for families who can choose between a shorter route to the Woodland Play Area, ideal for little legs and balance bikes, and a longer loop for more confident adventurers.”
Further information is available at their website.
