I stayed in Winchester for 12 days and rented a mountain bike to experience the Downs on foot and bike. The signage out of Winchester was ok, but in the park, it was tough to follow. I hear this is a newer national park and...More

Stunning is simply the best way to describe this expanse of rolling countryside and agricultural land dotted with towns and villages. Not only be amazed at the beauty but this area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) is a great way to enjoy nature.

Beautiful, beautiful South Downs with many family memories of picnics on the soft bouncy turf dotted with sheep and other furry beasts

Regularly make the trip up here in the car. It's absolutely beautiful and makes for great photographs plus is amazing for the dog walking. Always really lovely like minded people you meet on the walks. Head up to Devils Dyke for panoramic views

This part of the Downs overlooks the Parham Estate and Storrington village. The sea views reveal part of the Isle of Wight an oil platform and wind turbines. On our walk we stumbled across the remains of a bullet ridden rusting tank. Magnificent views in...More

So fortunate with the calm fine day. We set off from East Meon for an 8 mile circular walk that took us through gorgeous countryside, gentle rises and wonderful views. Wonderful day.

We walked 6 miles of the South Downs Way from Cocking on a glorious day. To be honest the distant views were overshadowed by the sense of history and the wildlife sightings from the path. Huge flocks of sheep with a background of receding hills,...More
