Moderate 8 miles / 12.9 km
This is approximately an eight mile walk. We start in the village of Sandhurst and walk through fields and woodland to Bodiam Castle. A 14th century moated castle.
Here you can either choose to have a picnic lunch in the the castle grounds or eat at the National Trust tea shop which could be warmer. There is the Castle Inn which is near by and could be busy.
There will be time to wander in to the castle itself if you choose to. There is an entry fee if you are not a National Trust member. We then return to Sandhurst along a different route.
For refreshments after the walk there is a pub and tea rooms in Sandhurst.
Please note that there is a £2 voluntary contribution for non-Rambler members towards meetup fees.
Paid up members of the Ramblers are welcome on any of our walks, but we would encourage you to RSVP. This is to give our volunteer walk leaders an idea of how many are attending, and also to keep the numbers manageable.
If, on the day of the walk, you are still on the waiting list and a Rambler member, please let the walk leader know you are coming. On the day of the walk only, the group leader can be contacted on[masked] - voice calls only (no texts).
