This is a linear walk
Now the good news is that the garden centre has a café called the ‘Tree House Coffee Shop’ which opens at 08.30 so if you wanted to join us, before our walk, for coffee or indeed breakfast you will be most welcome.
We will both start and finish our walk at the Garthowen Garden Centre and you will need to order your lunch in the normal way before we commence our walk.
On this stage (5miles) from Four Marks to Ropley we are rewarded with great views of our Hampshire countryside as we travel along a combination of footpaths (with a generous number of stiles), byways and quite country lanes.
Important : Please remember to bring your bus pass as we will need to catch the bus from the end of our walk (at Ropley) back to the start and lunch at the Garthowen Garden Centre (Four Marks).
