Take a stroll around Shearwater Lake on the Longleat Estate
Enjoy the sights and blooms of the Longleat Estate.
Shearwater Lake, a haven for fishing and sailing, lies in the Longleat Estate. The centerpiece of this luxury area is Longleat House, a splendid stately home, open to the public along with its garden and safari park.
The first part of this walk takes you around the edge of the Lake and through established open woodland. The second part is across open fields and through green lanes, offering a wealth of wild flowers, butterflies and birds.
The walk finishes by re-entering the estate, passing through a plantation in which there are magnificent beech trees among the conifers.
