- When walking on the road, walk on the right, facing the oncoming traffic
- Some paths look like fields! Farmers reinstate walking paths that run through their fields after they have ploughed. This can take some time, depending on the season
- Be careful not to damage crops and stick to the path if walking through fields
- Leave gates as you find them and follow instructions on signs
- Keep the countryside beautiful and take your litter home
- Keep your dog close, under control and on a lead around cows and sheep
- If you are threatened by cattle let your dog go – it will run to safety
- Don't panic or run if cattle follow you – stay calm and walk quickly and quietly around the herd
- Avoid getting between cows and their calves – find another way around the herd and re-join the footpath as soon as possible
- Don't forget to clean up after your dog
- When using the Public Right of Way remember: The land either side is private property.
The walk to Andrewsfield is easy, and there's a coffee or beer waiting at the other end for you. Dogs are also very welcome. As you walk the path between the fields look out for the rare treat of spotting herds of deer.
The Millibar is open from 8:30 am till 9 pm daily and serves breakfast till noon, and lunch until 3 pm. There are snacks, such as sausage rolls, cakes and nuts available once the kitchen has closed.
The Estate is situated in the North West Essex village of Great Saling.
We are fortunate that in 1791, Humphry Repton, the last great landscape designer of the Georgian period, laid out the gardens and parkland for subsequent generations to enjoy.
Today you can live here in one of the various properties to rent or stay with us at the Golden Grove caravan site or visit us at The Orangery.
After a long day, one of our favourite places to go is Andrews Airfield, just a short walk from Golden Grove.
With a cup of tea and a piece of cake you can watch light aircraft take off and land on the grass runway. There's also a bar open daily until 9pm.
Andrewsfield was built by the Americans during WW2, named after the American General Andrews. With a visit, you may even learn to fly!

Calving season is well underway.
Rob and Stephen are doing an amazing job of making sure our small suckler herd are keeping warm and cosy despite the recent bad weather. With daily top up bedding of straw and a constant supply of silage, this is their routine for the next few months.
Calving can happen any time of the day and night. A few days ago we had a mother give birth to twins and alas one was rejected. Fortunately it had a little of the life giving colostrum and then it was a mad dash to make up some powdered milk. It has survived so far and is now under the watchful care and being hand reared. A time consuming job but like having a new born child it needs regular feeding and plenty of attention so eventually it can join the herd again.
Sunday rant: Thank you to the wonderful firemen who helped our neighbours George and Margaret deal with an arsonist attack at midnight last night.
It was a long and terrible night which meant key machinery as well as hay and straw went up in flames. Now in the clear light of day we can see the damage but it is the smell which lingers that is the strongest reminder of last night.
How dare arsonists destroy other people’s property, livelihoods and threaten animals meters away with such insensitivity of the impact on other innocent lives.
It is always exciting to see the snowdrops pushing through the ground.
With the lengthening of afternoon - hurrah - it is prefect to have brisk, sunny walks around Golden Grove.
There are some great footpaths which we supply maps for you to use.
Lots of fresh air!
