We have recently moved to Kennington so are only 3 miles from this beautiful place. We can't believe how lucky we are to have this on our doorstep. We did the 5 mile circular walk through Wye from the car park in Coldharbour lane. It...More

Found a great walk on the web, that took us from the centre of Wye, through the fields and up onto the North Downs and through the Wye National Reserve, past "The Crown" and back again. Highly recommended

The Downs are perfect for a lovely walk - stunning scenery, easy parking. If it is muddy - make sure to bring your boots - cattle do wander the area.

Despite a lack of signposts, it is very hard to miss as the view can be seen from the road (Use Postcode TN25 5HE for Satnav). The car park is small but functional, and best of all free. There are bins and an information panel,...More
