This is a gentle circular walk through the beautiful beech woods of Greys Court estate, 3 miles west of Henley-on-Thames. The walk is fairly flat, with the exception of one small section which has a sharp descent where steps and a rail are provided. The route is well marked (follow the Greys Estate Walk signs) and the walk takes you past the National Trust property and then through a series of lovely woods which are full of bluebells in the late spring. The trail is fairly good although would require good walking shoes after wet weather as can get a little boggy on some of the woodland parts of the walk.
When the National Trust property is open, there is parking at Greys Court itself and you can begin the walk from the back of the car park where it is clearly marked. Alternatively in the off-season, informal parking is available on the side of the road on Rocky Lane and the footpath can be picked up just to the side of this.
This is the perfect walk for a balmy spring day – meander through the bluebells and then finish your walk with a picnic or a cream tea at the National Trust teashop at Greys Court. For the more adventurous, there are numerous other walks and variations on this walk which you can take, with numerous other footpaths and walks crossing this route.
