A circular easy access walk around Brentmoor Heath near West End in Surrey, taking in the beautiful sections of heath and woodland and with chance to visit the local pub. This walk is published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk has just a few gentle slopes throughout. The bridleways are unmade but generally very firm although some of the sections near Sapper Pond and in the heath basin can get very muddy in the wetter months so wellingtons are recommended at these times. This easy access route has been deliberately designed to avoid all obstacles on the heath paths (staggered barriers, narrow bridges and steps) making it suitable for rugged all-terrain pushchairs and disability buggies during the drier months. If you are not limited by avoiding these obstacles, you could explore other paths within the heath (using the GPS-powered map on the App will help you to keep your bearings!). Dogs are welcome on the heath and dog waste bins are provided around the site. Approximate time 1.5 hours. There are no toilets or other facilities within the heath. If you are looking for refreshments, the walk includes a visit to the Hare and Hounds pub in Donkey Town. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 145 Guildford and Farnham. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

Nice open space. Some woodland but not a huge amount of shade. Lots of gunfire noise. Not too muddy in November but quite marshy in places. Wellies needed after rain

I am lucky enough to live on Brentmoor Road which is next the the Hare and Hounds public house. I often go for long walks through Donkey Town woods. I usually walk for a couple of hours and have walked 7.5 miles before heading over towards Deepcut. It is a lovely walk mixed with some nice inclines especially around the path that runs alongside the M. O. D fence. Recommended.
