Can anyone please advise is Easebourne within walking distance of Midhurst ; what's there.. Is it a village?
I know Easbourne well, when you cross the bridge over the river Rother at the nothern end of Midhurst you are in Easbourne. It's on the busy A272, there's a petrol station, a pub, shop and a church, it's mainly residential. Much more to do in Midhurst itself.
BTW, it's pronounced Ezbourne.Edited: 01 April 2018, 05:35
Thank you.. I'm thinking of staying in the area for around a week;I want to walk explore and decide if it's a place I'd like to x housesit.
I spent a few days in Midhurst last year. Didn't walk to Easebourne but did do lots of walking in my 'ancestor country' around Woolbeding , Iping and other hamlets across the various Commons. Lovely walking country.
Both Midhurst and Easeborne are on the Haslemere to Chichester bus route. I arrived from Haslemere rail station this way.
When I was heading to Gatwick to continue my holiday abroad, the route was bus from Midhurst to Pulborough and train from there. Best route might vary depending on exact time of travel. Use www.traveline.info to check public transport options between any two places in the U.K.
I stayed at the Swan in Midhurst - highly recommended. Historic but beautifully renovated and comfortable. Relatively inexpensive, for the area. Good breakfast. (They weren't doing evening meals at that point - not a problem as choice of eating places in the town).
Great place to spend a few days' walking.
Ooooh! If you don't want to do the house-sit, I will!
Lots of footpaths for walks from Midhurst itself.
Two long-distance paths:
2) The South Downs Way. The local part can be accessed by taking the bus to Cocking, just a few miles south.
One day I took a taxi out to Linch church, where some ancestors married, and had a lovely 4-mile walk back.
There are occasional buses westwards through Stedham, which would enable a walk back across the Commons that lie south from there.
I didn't have time to do all these, but noted for future ....
There's another long-distance path; I forgot the Serpent Trail.
A wealth of information ; many thanks to all.
