Getting There

A circular pub walk from the beautiful estate village of Faccombe in Hampshire. The Jack Russell Inn is the perfect spot for post-ramble refreshments, where you can enjoy delicious estate fare with real fires in the winter or garden views of the village pond in the summer. The walking route explores the estate thoroughfares, following farm tracks and woodland paths through the beautiful rolling hills. It is a peaceful journey with plenty of wildlife, wildflowers and lovely vistas along the way. The walk includes several climbs and descents throughout, a couple of which are quite steep. For the most part the walk follows ancient tracks and paths but there is one stretch along a quiet country lane, so take care of traffic at this point. Some of the chalk paths can become muddy and slippery when wet, so good boots are a must (or wellies with good grips in the winter). There are no stiles or kissing gates on route; you will only need to negotiate a few gaps alongside farm gates. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock, but there are plenty of gamebirds around so take care with dogs. Allow 1.5 hours.

Faccombe is located on the North Downs in the north of Hampshire, close to the border with Berkshire. It is 8 miles from Andover and 6 miles from Newbury. The walk starts and finishes at The Jack Russell Inn, directly opposite the village pond. The pub has its own large car park. Approximate post code SP11 0DS.

Great trail - we took our 7 &11yr old sons. Managed to go off trail by accident and add another 1k to the walk but it was a lovely and peaceful walk

Enjoyed this walk including lunch at the Jack Russell afterwards. Agree with the description though - there are a lot of games birds en route which caused great excitement for our working cocker but meant that we had to put her back on the lead for parts of it after she flushed a few unsuspecting pheasants! Be careful of the slippery downhill section near the start

Very nice walk and pub at the end! Wouldn't recommend dogs on this walk, due to large numbers of pheasants!
