Erddig is a beautiful atmospheric house, featuring a 1,200-acre country park and formal walled garden
Considered to be one of Britain's finest historic houses, Erddig is a fascinating yet unpretentious early 18th-century country house reflecting the upstairs downstairs life of a gentry family over 250 years.
This walk takes you on a circular route in the country park, just outside the boundary of the formal gardens.
Walk from the hall entrance past the dovecote (on your right).
Walk straight on down the track alongside the field. Turn left. Walk straight on and you'll see the back view of Erddig, the gates and the ha-ha.
Carry on until you see a path to your left. Follow this path straight on through Big Wood. The Wolf's Den play area will be on your left.
Walk to the end of the path. It will bear right and drop down a bank. Go through the metal kissing gate at the end. To your left on the other side of the road you will see a wooden bridge that leads to the Cup and Saucer waterfall.
Cross the bridge, but before the cup and saucer look to your left and you'll see a wooden kissing gate into a meadow. Go through the gate.
Follow the path along. To your left you'll see the front view of Erddig Hall.
Follow the path alongside black brook until you see a crossing place over the leete that leads to another wooden kissing gate. Go through the gate onto Erddig Road.
Turn right and follow the road round, past the Coachman's Cottage and back to where you started from.
This is just a short walk that you could do in less than an hour - unless you keep getting distracted like I useually do!
