    Route Description for Someries Castle Walk

    The Someries Castle Walk is a 10.6 km out-and-back route that follows a non-technical path to a manor that dates back to the 15th century! However, the drive leading up to the trailhead may not be as smooth. Some would advise driving a 4x4.

    From your car, head towards the Mulberry House and Cedar House. Continue along the path and when you reach Someries Castle, turn around and head back the way you came. This is a pleasant stroll that’s worth trying out if you’re looking for a long walk with rolling hills running beside you.
