A good circular walk. It was a bit of a rainy day so we couldn't really see the harbour views at all!! At the stone trough we thought we'd have a sit and a drink but, at this time of year, it was covered in undergrowth so there was no way we could sit! Lovely views of the back of Stansted House that not many people get to see. Towards the end of the walk through a field we got to a stage by the paddock where the path was very overgrown and not very well used so be prepared to walk through some tall grass at this time of year Overall took us just over 2 hours

Lovely walk with some great views. The instructions are very clear but follow them word for word otherwise it is easy to get lost. Remember to wear trousers as it is a little overgrown in areas.

Wonderful walk absolutely loved it. Dog friendly would highly recommend can see in the winter this could be muddy in places but is dry at the moment

pretty walk.nice scenery. but did get very lost. like 3.5miles out of our way. ended up road walking back to selbourne. never did find the zig zag path. the pub at the end of walk was a very welcoming sight

a great walk with excellent directions. shame it was a complete wash out today but I bet the views are great.

Gentle walk with plenty of surroundings for the dog to explore off lead. Worth spending extra time exploring Farringdon including the Rose & Crown pub.

Lovely mixed route, great scenery and chance to stop at great tea room. Even bought a jug at the pottery!

Lovely trail in nature, beautiful views, forest, wild, hills. We extended the itinerary proposed and it was a great choice. We ended with a more or less 10km beautiful trail. After the memorial turn right and a bit further instead of going straight turn left and allow yourself an extra 4km loop. It starts with a beautiful view and the way is all along worth the detour.

Beautiful woodland! A nice walk. Would do it against. We started in Rogate instead so we could have a pub lunch afterwards at the White Horse.

lovely walk taking in some of the South Downs Way.

Lovely walk good views and different terrain. The pub is open only 11.30-14.30 during the day. Dog friendly although there is no water so will need to take some with you for yourself and any four legged friends.

This was an easy very varied walk. We particularly enjoyed the paths in Stoke Wood and the views as we reached the field near the sculptures. Although there was quite a lot of walking on quiet roads it was lovely to see places we have only driven past before from a different aspect. Thank you.

Lovely easy walk in very dry weather but can see areas that would be very muddy. Nice mix of deep countryside and pretty villages with pavement walking. Finishing in Arundel with a nice cold lager!

Loved this walk. Beautiful scenery and views.

We really enjoyed this walk which has fantastic views and a lovely mixture of paths. As always the instructions were fantastic. Just a word of warning... the first footpath, after passing through the two kissing gates, was easy to find and to follow, but quite overgrown. We were glad we weren’t wearing shorts as there were a lot of nettles! Thank you.

Lovely scenery throughout. Dogs must be on leads for the beginning as there’s livestock for the first 10 minutes. A lot of bluebell patches throughout the woods, great for pictures. No signage for car parking but we did find a small field next to it that we parked in. Took us roughly 1h30m.

Lovely day walk dog friendly, a bit confused just over half way A’s foot path went into private then back to public. Beautiful views and a lovely wild garlic woods, I would definitely recommend this walk

What a lovely walk really dog friendly easy walking with a few climbs but nothing to bad. Beautiful views. Different terrains would highly recommend.

I would recommend this walk, but if you have a dog when going through the last field with cattle up hill was a bit scary as every cow walked with me luckily the bull didn’t take much notice, just be prepared, apart from that a lovely walk through woods and fields

A pleasant walk especially the Broadwalk through the woods. Around Funtington the fields were full of pigs meaning my dog has to be kept on her lead for long stretches of the walk. Some particularly ripe smells around the Pig farm! Overall a nice easy walk but a little too much time walking along the roads for my liking.

Lovely walk, saw sheep and some pony trekkers. Directions very clear.

The route is well described and offers some stunning views.

Impressive forests to walk through

Beautiful trail to see the bluebells in April/early May. Allow 2 hours if you’re stopping to take pics. You can find good spots to stop for a picnic. Dogs and children friendrly. Some steep parts but not extreme at all. You can start and finish at The George Eartham, great pub with great food and ales.

A very pleasant walk. However the field opposite Stansted House was being ploughed up and it was difficult spotting the far end of the path. One field at the end of the walk was full of lambs but safe enough with the dog on a lead.
