This delightful four-mile walk from the village of Ebrington passes through open countryside and woodland to the Foxcote Estate.

Foxcote House is a Grade II* listed, 18th-century country house in the village of Ilmington. The house was originally the family seat of the Canning family until 1848. In the English Civil War the Canning were staunch royalists, keeping a watchful eye on the Roundhead troops in nearby Warwickshire.

The property has had many owners since, most recently Leslie Wexner, the billionaire tycoon behind the Victoria’s Secret lingerie empire, who brought the property in 1997.
