Quoins, started in 2002, is one of just 18 certified organic vineyards in the UK and they mainly produce three wines – one red and two whites. We will visit the vineyard in the final part of the walk and Alan, the owner, will give us a brief guided tour followed by wine tasting.

The walk will take us north out of BoA. A stiff climb near the start takes us up St Mary Tory where we’ll stop for a few minutes to get our breath back and admire superb views over the town and across to Salisbury Plain. The walking is then mainly level across field paths and along country lanes. After the vineyard visit it is about 1.5 miles back to town.

If you wish to purchase some wine Alan will gladly deliver it down to the start point for you to pick up on arrival back in Westbury Gardens.

WALK GRADES:
Easy  – a mainly level, comfortably paced shorter walk (up to about 3 or 4 miles) with no stiles.
Moderate  – a longer, more challenging walk (up to about 7 miles), faster pace, with steps, steeper gradients and stiles.
Demanding – longer and more demanding than moderate, faster pace, requiring greater stamina; possibly more, steeper gradients. We would expect participants to be able to keep up with the pace set by the leader, it is a walk rather than an amble.

THE ‘SMALL PRINT’

  • Walk duration times are a guide and the actual walks may be shorter or longer than advertised. The time stated is the length of time we will be out, including stops for refreshments and guided tours.
  • Walk leaders are in charge at all times. Their decision on participation is final and they may need to change a route due to local conditions or to adapt to changing circumstances. Should you wish to leave a walk the leader or backmarker should be informed & you will then be responsible for your own safety & wellbeing.
  • We welcome people with assistance dogs, otherwise we have a ‘no dogs’ policy.
  • Vulnerable people and U18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Every effort has been made to ensure that the information about each walk is correct and we reserve the right to make changes to or cancel walks should unforeseen circumstances arise.
  • Booking fees are non-refundable.

HELPING YOU GET THE MOST FROM YOUR WALKS

  • Please bear in mind that you are responsible for your own personal safety. Our leaders will have risk assessed every walk and will make you aware of any potential hazards at the start of the walk.
  • Please make sure you have the ability and stamina to complete a walk based on the information we have provided.
