Nadder Valley Walks
Tisbury Footpath Club have published two editions of Nadder Valley Walks, each detailing the routes for 18 circular walks around the Nadder Valley and beyond. We have copies available to buy, just ask a member of our team.
Walk number 11 in the orange book, Fonthill Park & Ridge, passes our front door and is a great place to start.
ELECTRIC BIKE RENTAL
Brand new to Tisbury for 2021, and just 5 minutes from Bird & Carter, Cranks & Planks rent their electric mountain bikes for either half or whole days. The electric motors make the world flat, so no more stuggling up hills! We can honestly say it is so much fun, and a brilliant way to take in some of beautiful surrounding countryside on the Fonthill Estate and beyond.
