passing your time at old-lands

There are 200 acres for you to roam about in and a useful estate map shows you where you can walk. We have a series of letterboxes, (a sort of low-fi geocaching) to take you to the far corners of the estate that you might not otherwise discover. Sam, our ecologist, does nature walks by request. Please email him on to book. These run from May to the end of September. He can’t take bookings under a month in advance as he has a busy fieldwork season so he might not always be free. Parents can award themselves a lie-in by booking a session for their children to build dens and muddy their wellies at the Forest School. You might also like to pick up a pair of oars for a row around the island on the lake, or wander along the yew-tree walk and toss a ball on the old, well-loved tennis court. Angela offers wild swimming tuition in our lake to prepare you before you brave the waters beyond. With the Wye, Usk and mountain lakes nearby, we are well placed for wild water.. There are also 20 geocaches, many of them done by us, that are either on or within walking distance of the estate.
