About this walk

A lovely walk that takes you from the centre of Selborne, dropping down behind the church and following the easy path through woodland, alongside the stream, down to the Priory Ponds, then through Priory farm where you loop back and come back up the other side of the stream in the woodland meeting the lane that takes you back into the centre of Selborne.
There is a car park behind the pub.
The walk can be muddy when wet and there are often cattle in various places to watch out for.
Taking a map is recommended as there are various other paths that interconnect.

    We tried this dog walk at the end of September 2017 and located free parking behind the Selborne Arms pub. The walk really was great despite a little rain. It's National Trust and found great woodland, lakes and streams - fabulous for the dogs and great scenery to boot. Highly recommended.

    We thought we’d try this walk after the good write up. We loved it! The walk starts in the pretty village and the footpath takes a lovely wander through the churchyard before heading into the countryside. We enjoyed paddling in the stream near the start of the walk and the dogs loved chasing each other as we passed the ponds. There were some geese there, but they quickly went to the water when two large retrievers appeared! The path goes through the farm as you turn to walk back alongside the other side of the river. It is well signposted and clearly marked but there were free range chickens strutting around, so make sure leads are on for this small section! Otherwise it is all off-lead and safe for dogs to walk and run around. We managed to park near the school as it was a holiday, but I wonder if parking could be an issue in-season, as it was obviously a touristy area with Gilbert White’s house at the other end. The car park by the pub seemed to be paid parking. We will definitely go again and explore the village as well - there were other walks signposted such as a zigzag path and Selborne hill on the other side.
