Getting There

A circular pub walk from the White Hart in Chipstead, Surrey. This classic pub offers a great choice of real ales and wines to accompany tasty meals from fresh and local ingredients. The village lies on the top of the North Downs and provides the perfect access point to explore the surrounding countryside of mature trees, hedgerows, open fields, rolling hills and farmland. The route follows a loop around Shabden Park, a working farm which is famed for its sweeping views of rolling hills, sheep-grazed valleys, wildflowers and butterflies. The route is fairly strenuous with several climbs and descents throughout and the woodland and field paths, whilst mainly firm, can get a little muddy after periods of rain and in winter. There are no stiles but several kissing gates to negotiate. Most of the park is a working farm and the valley fields are used to graze sheep and cattle so close all gates after you and take particular care with dogs. The long section through Long Plantation is fenced and so dogs can be let off the lead for this stretch. Allow 1 to 1.5 hours.

Chipstead is located in north east Surrey, less than a 10 minute drive from Junction 8 of the M25. The walk starts and finishes at the White Hart pub which can be found on the junction of High Road and Hazelwood Lane. Approximate post code CR5 3QW.

Lovely trail, will need to keep dogs on a lead for half of it though due to sheep grazing.

Hilly in parts but it flattens out frequently. Beautiful views and very quiet!

Great route, however stick to the footpaths! the farmer WILL drive up to you at speed on his quad bike and shout at you if you're more than a metre away from the footpath!

easy, a bit hilly and if you have a dog needs to be on leash for 2 small areas.

Great trail! Walk through wooded areas to open hills with nice views of the Surrey Hills and it was not too lengthy. Lots of sheep poo though. I did it with my 4 and 7 year old boys who didn’t find the route too tasking but they were definitely tired when we got home! Great pub at the start and end of the trail too! Enjoy!

Lovely walk, away from roads for most of the time and the footpaths are very well signposted.

Not the best, but nice meadows, wild flowers, lots of sheep (and sheep dung). Good for a variety of woodland and open fields. Nice to finish with a pint and some food at the pub.

The route leads through fields full of sheep in every season so dogs on the lead and so is a bit boring for them. There is a gate which isn’t easy for bigger dogs, make sure you can lift yours over. The pub is posh but needs booking in advance as it can be busy.

Useful bonus: if you decide to eat inside then dogs are allowed too in most of the pub.

First to Review

We took this walk after lunch at the White Hart. My partner has a bit of a cattle phobia so we took a diversion around one field. I think it was the horns! Of course the cows were only interested in eating grass and we had more risk from the cars on the lane! All of the other fields contained inquisitive sheep. We soon got back on track thanks to the GPS map. A very enjoyable walk.
