Tatton Park and Knutsford

The walk is largely confined to the 1,000 acres of Tatton Park but has a short extension into Knutsford so that the whole perimeter can be explored - that still leaves the central section! The deer are more easily seen by walking away from the house - as is described in the text.

Although the grounds are, of course, starker in winter, this is probably the best time to see the deer close up, since they are fed supplements of root vegetables at this time. This is also a good time for birdwatching - there is plenty to see on the lakes plus the usual winter visitors like fieldfares and woodland birds like nuthatches and treecreepers.

Lovely walk - on which as mentioned before - you can get really 'up close and personal' to the deer. There's one slight problem at the end of the walk as the path through the woods to the last 3 waymarks has been closed off and is now Private - No entry. A new path has been created to take you back to the car park. It makes the walk about 1/2 a mile shorter but no less lovely

A lovely walk - we saw plenty of deer at surprisingly close quarters, had a picnic by the mere, enjoyed a short detour into Knutsford and got back in time for tea and cake in the NT restaurant (closes 4pm in winter). The only downside of this walk - a lot of dogs running loose which rather spoiled the walk for us. When choosing the walk I made the mistake of assuming that dogs would have to be on leads because of the deer.
