Selborne - Chawton - Selborne Walk


The walk covers some of the most tranquil areas of Hampshire and can be undertaken at haste or in a leisurely fashion. The route covers all sorts of terrain found in Hampshire: footpaths through wooded areas, through fields, over tracks and open countryside, all with lovely views.

There are good pubs in all three villages the walk passes through. I would recommend a stop in the Farringdon pub Rose and Crown. You can either stop at this pub on the way out or on the way back. Opening times are: Mon-Sat noon-2.30 and 6.30-9.30pm; Sundays noon-5pm. The food is good and the service is friendly (at the time of writing).

There is a pub and a tea room in Chawton. In Chawton you can visit the Jane Austen's house museum. Jane Austen is one of the most famous of English authors.

In Selborne there is a lot of history related to Gilbert White and the Oates family. At the end of the walk you are able to descend the zigzag route which affords great views of the Hampshire countryside on the way down.

I walked with my two dogs, a King Charles Spaniel and a Pembrokeshire Corgi. I found the route easy with the dogs.
