A 3 mile circular pub walk from The Huntsman in Eridge. An enjoyable, gently undulating walk through classic Kent countryside including converted oast house, wooded lanes, open fields and an abundance of bird life.

The walk follows a mixture of quiet lanes and woodland and field paths. The route includes several kissing gates but there are no stiles. Approximate time 70 to 90 minutes.

The walk starts from The Huntsman in Eridge on the border of East Sussex and Kent. The village is located just off the A26 between Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough. Approximate post code TN3 9LE.

Nice walk if a little boring. Didn't particularly like the fact that there was a chunk of road walking.

Lovely peaceful walk, first time I have used this great app. A few corrections to the instructions: the road you start on is Forge Road not Forge Lane; the first stile mentioned is actually a kissing-gate; and there is no metal gate where it mentions one on the third last page.

ADMIN RESPONSE: Many thanks for taking the time to send through the updates for the walking directions. We have updated the directions (let us know if we've interpreted anything wrong) so that future walkers have all the latest facts. Good to know this is now a stile-free route.

We enjoyed this walk on a Monday. Lots of cars parked around the rail station but few on the road. We saw pigs at the pub. Their last day as they were being moved to a new home (really - not a euphamism for the bacon factory). The pub is closed on Mondays and is closing completely on 9 Oct 2016. Not sure if it will reopen? The walk was pleasant. We saw a heron on the first lake and robins in the hedgerows.

ADMIN RESPONSE: Thanks for the info. We have checked with the pub and the landlord is changing on 9 October 2016. The pub will only be closed for a few days, reopening under new management on Friday 14 October 2016.
