South Downs Spa Walking

Peace and tranquillity on the South Downs.
Overview

We have been lucky to find a world-renowned spa hotel set in beautiful walking country so you can enjoy the best of both on our South Downs holiday. Think luxurious white towels and hiking boots.

The renowned Champneys Forest Mere Spa hotel sits in acres of beautiful parkland just south of Haslemere in the South Downs National Park. It must have the most impressive approach of any hotel in our brochure with a drive that winds two miles through forest and heathland. Turn a corner and the hotel can be seen across the mere itself.

We’re spoilt for choice of walks. We’ll take the classic walk from Thursley through the natural amphitheatre of the Devil’s Punchbowl, some of the finest scenery on the South Downs. We explore Frensham ponds built 500 years ago as fish farms for the Bishop of Winchester. We may also ascend the highest point in Sussex, the wild and beautiful Blackdown, with panoramic views from the Temple of the Winds on the summit. Add in a couple of rural strolls to enjoy the best of this lovely area and we have a very attractive walking programme. Back at the hotel you can relax and make the most of the facilities on offer.
