Bike, Walk, Run
Explore the Estate & beyond. Archerfield Walled Garden is set within the beautiful landscape of Archerfield Estate. We have created an extensive network of pathways to encourage our visitors to walk, bike and run around the Estate, including a Willow Walk and Fairy Trail for all the family.
So bring the kids and the dog and get set for a nature-rich activity before heading back into the Garden Café for a restorative bite to eat, a refreshing drink of craft ale and/or a hot cuppa.
