A lot of our wonderful guests are avid ramblers and enjoy nothing more than a hike across the Wiltshire countryside and be close to nature. At Brades Acre Touring Park, we’ve put together a list of local recognised walking routes across Salisbury Plain with links to guide maps.
Military Environmentalism - Salisbury Plain Walk
This moderate terrain walk across Salisbury Plain is great for families and groups interested in military and history. However, it is not suitable for prams or wheelchairs. This is an active military training area, please don’t be alarmed if you hear any loud or sudden noises or see soldiers on exercise. At the same time, please do not interrupt military personnel. You’ll see the beautiful country landscape, chalk grassland scenery and impressive prehistoric sites.
The West Lavington and Salisbury Plain walking route is an idyllic countryside route that will take you through West Lavington and across local points of interest including All Saints Church, strip lynchets and historic Dauntsey School, founded in 1543. This walk is of mild terrain and is not suitable for prams or wheelchairs.
Hillforts on Salisbury Plain
One of the longest walks in on Salisbury Plain, this walk will take you over four small hillforts, steeped in historic significance. The walk is bookended by two villages with amenities and such as local shops and pubs, and takes you over the beautiful Salisbury Plains with excellent views of Wiltshire countryside. This walk is for the more experienced walkers due to uneven terrain and length of walk.
