We spent a great afternoon walking through Hackfall Woods visiting the various follies. Be prepared for a few steep climbs on hard packed mud paths and if you see a bench, sit on it; you’ll find hidden views that you probably won’t expect.
The architect of this mix of follies and landscaping knew what he was doing and it is no wonder that some of the features of Hackfall were depicted on Catherine the Great’s dinner service.
The Ruin can also be rented from the Landmark Trust and it is a superb and quirky place to enjoy a tranquil few days.
