A new series of walks has been launched by the Rougham Estate, just outside Bury St Edmunds.

Each walk has been designed by George Agnew, whose great-grandfather bought Rougham Estate in 1904, and all are dog friendly and have been tested with Bolly the cavapoo, who has given them his seal of approval.

The Estate's Roots Café and the new Garden Room shop are now open all year around (not necessarily every day – please check for the latest opening times), so you are welcome to visit Blackthorpe Barn throughout the seasons.

Walkers can choose from easy, medium or hard routes taking in meadows, woodland, ancient oak trees, a lake and much more in this stunning Suffolk countryside.

Here are a few highlights.

Downs Wood Walk - 20 minutes

This short walk takes you through the beautiful Downs Wood. It is great as a nice easy walk for people and dogs. If it has been raining recently the path through the woods might be muddy and slippery in places and if it’s been windy there may be branches across the path.

Downs Wood Walk and Footpath - 30 minutes

This walk takes you through the Downs Wood and on the far side takes you round some beautiful paths with views of Rougham Church before returning to the Blackthorpe Barn through the wood again. If it’s been raining recently, the paths through the woods may be muddy and slippery in places and there may be some branches across the path if it’s been windy.

Green Lanes - 45 minutes

This walk passes Rougham Church and some of the really lovely green lanes that we have on the Rougham Estate. It’s an attractive area to visit at any time of year. The walk goes through woodland and includes a kissing gate.

Meadows Walk near Lake Farm - 1 hour 30 minutes

This walk visits some of the most lovely meadows on the Rougham Estate. They are remote, peaceful and have remained virtually unchanged for centuries. They are filled with ancient oak trees and are surrounded by high hedgerows. To visit them is to step back in time.

To view all the walks visit the Rougham Estate website - more walks will be added over time.
