The Bolney Stage and Wykehurst Park Circular

If you take a small detour you’ll wind up at our Estate, where will be waiting with a glass of bubbly to refuel you for the next part of your walk. Just to let you know, good waterproof boots are recommended as this route can get slightly uneven and muddy in places.


Balcombe and Ardingly Reservoir Circular

7.8 miles


One of the most photogenic parts of Sussex is the famous Balcombe Viaduct, offering a dramatic view with plenty of interesting sights and wildlife along the way. Discover the picturesque lake and stunning greenery on this moderate route, again, walking boots are recommended.
