A circular walk from the Dabbling Duck cafe in Shere, Surrey. The Dabbling Duck is a great place to meet up for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. The welcome is warm and the food is a treat. The walking route follows long stretches of beautiful ancient lanes which criss-cross this area of the Surrey Hills. You'll pass through sections of heath and woodland with the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife and enjoy views across the landscape. The walk has many fairly gentle climbs and descents throughout plus just a couple of short, more challenging gradients. The vast majority of the route follows ancient lanes which are fairly wide, but are rocky and uneven, and can be muddy in winter. There are no stiles on route, just a handful of gates including one kissing gate. You will need to cross the rail line at one point, using an un-signalled crossing, so take particular care here, especially with children and dogs. Allow 3 to 4 hours.

Lovely walk starting in the pretty village of Shere. No problem parking in the free car park mid morning on a Bank Holiday. Gorgeous peaceful woodland walks passing through the village of Peaslake with the Hurtwood Inn and village stores for refreshments. A few climbs but scenic views of the North Downs. Stopped in The White Horse, Shere at the end for a drink. Dogs welcome in the bar - manageress even came around handing out dog treats for all the canine visitors. Highly recommend this walk.
