Haywards Heath, West Sussex Map

great walk - lovely varied terrain and beautiful pond with bench for a nice halfway stop. Avoid eating at Bolney Stage pub. Very poor quality food and expensive. Sunday roast was almost inedible. Walk takes you past Bolney Vineyard which has a very attractive restaurant with outside terrace and appetising menu.

A nice walk and worth doing once. Steep climbs through wood and again up and down steep steps. Lovely views, great pub (Gardeners Arms) you’re in the trees too often for me and although I enjoyed it, we’ve got better walks but as I say worth giving it a go once

Lovely varied walk, nothing challenging. An abundance of wildlife as well was an added bonus.

Very good instructions although a bit of road walking on way back. On the way from the gardeners arms walking across a third field, near Kew At Wakehurst, one has to walk through the middle of the field towards and gate instead of the right hand side. This is the only small change since these instructions were written! landscape was varied and the pub was good :)

What a fantastic walk! It really has everything here. Beautiful views and stunning scenery. Lots of nice wooded areas too. Highly recommended.

Nice trail. Fairly easy with nice scenery and wildlife.

Great walk around half of the reservoir then a loop through the country side to get back the the start,. little bits of roads but very scenic.

Lovely walk. We bought eggs from a hatch on edge of the farm. Picnics at duck pond and Bolney vineyard

walking with the reservoir on your left this walk is stunning, until you get half way round and hit private property. At this point which isn't shown on the alltrails map you have to detour onto a lane with constant fast moving traffic for about 3.5 kilometers. Not pleasant. I hope this can be corrected as some of the water scenes are well worth the walk.

A lovely springtime walk a little tough in places but well worth doing many places for refreshments and lovely scenery.

A lovely first iFootpath walk with the dog, directions were fantastic, very impressed and can’t wait for the next one. Lunch in The Bolney Stage after, lovely bar staff who welcomed the dog and our muddy boots.

A nice walk, great instructions, some lovely views, glad that I've done this walk but not worth a second viewing

Very nice walk and very nice pub. Took us just under 2 hours timed perfectly to avoid the forecast rain. Would do again in the dry as it was very muddy in parts.

The loveliest walk yet. Highly recommended

Really lovely walk with everything you could want; lovely views, animals, woodland, fields, etc. App worked really well, just needs some slight updating (although mostly down to the time of year). We got a little confused at the end of step 3 as you have to step over a small fence when walking round the sheep pens, luckily the farmer pointed out the way. Otherwise really great instructions and well worth a walk!

Superb walk and the Shepherd's Inn pub is excellent for food, atmosphere and service. Totally recommend. Thank you for posting this walk, we had a wonderful time, so so beautiful.

Fantastic walk, takes in a wonderful array of varying scenery. Rolling hills, wonderful farm life with lots of livestock, cute village life and a spectacular 15th century grand Tudor pub that just oozes character, with inglenook open fireplaces, ancient flagstones and crooked beams. A very warm welcome from the bar staff, good honest food and a chatty atmosphere if you like that kind of thing. Couldn't fault the walk and pub :)
