about third of the way round there is a very steep descent (we walked and he clockwise). the were also some short overgrown sections. great variety of walk. look out for albino deer

Lovely walk through fields and woods then back round by the side of the house , you can park in the house car park. You don’t have to pay unless you go into the gardens,

This is a great trail, we went on a clear sunny day and the view from the hill was spectacular. This has a better view than devils dyke because you have a full panoramic view.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

The route is well described and offers some stunning views.

Lovely easy hike with good paths to follow. Some nice benches along the way to stop and admire the views.

You can basically follow the gold signs all the way round. It's the official walk from the National Trust property

Absolutely stunning walk from start to finish and bluebells out of this world!

Delightful walk and excellent directions. We had it to ourselves despite it being a sunny bank holiday

Thank you Mr Grandad for this walk, the views were spectacular and passing the 2 memorials really sent a shiver down the spine. Lest we forget.

Excellent walk - lovely sense of open space, beautiful trees and some gorgeous properties to lust after. Pub and Selborne is friendly and reasonably priced. Worth a trip to the church to see the Gilbert White stained glass windows.

Very enjoyable walk after good lunch at The Welldiggers Arms. The village hall at Fittleworth is a good comfort break with a well-stocked local shop next door.

This is a nice easy walk with no difficult inclines and no need to walk on any roads. We did this in late March and the bluebells were only just starting to flower. With so many bluebell woods along the walk April would be perfect to see them at their best.

I have been to Selborne a few times but never Noar hill and this made a great circular walk taking in the views of the hangars. It was the therapy I needed after a being at work.

Did this walk in a proper grotty grey winter day and it cheered us up immensely. Very recommended as in fact we've done this one twice already now!

Great walk. Thank you for such good instructions.

Good walk with a variety of scenery. Came across the mountain bike trails which were busy but well marshalled.

I did this walk mid-March after a few wet days and the very picturesque sunken paths had sadly been ploughed up by horses and were not very nice to try and navigate along. I recommend others do the walk during a dry spell to make the most of it. It's a nice and challenging walk, total climb was 230m according to my son's gizmo watch. The live GPS map kept us on the right track. A combination of woodland, quiet country lane, and heathland. There are several really lovely views along the way. By the way, the cattle were black belted Galloways, most unusual and very impressive.

Nice trail through woodland and fields, the view from the top of Bignor hill is definitely worth the walk up. Best to go on a sunny day with high visibility. It can be very muddy so id recommend a change of shoes for the car.
