Reasons for trip

I had been to Frensham Big Pond many times as a child and teen and we decided to visit for a walk around the pond itself. We visited on a weekday so parking was ample and free, although it is chargeable at weekends. There was a cafe and toilets (not used by us).

We walked to the beach area which is where I’d spend many happy hours as a child and teen, in and out the water or just lazing on the beach. Unfortunately on a chilly but slightly stormy day in April there were lots of “midges” but we carried on past and found a trail. The sand got less which made it easier to walk, as it became more of a dirt track. There were a few clearings to see the lake but it was mostly woodland walk, quite pretty with some bluebells and trees all starting to bud.

The track then forced us onto a back road for a short distance before we were back into the woods then past the private boat club and back on the road again. This was more of a main country road where there was no path at times, probably less than 100 yards but I certainly wouldn’t recommend if you were walking with children. We then entered back into woodland and arrived back at the car park.

We were unsure if this was the only walk around the pond. It was a 40 minute brisk walk for us. Nice to see something different but not sure we’d go back.

Ideal place to stop for a picnic or bit of time out. The surrounding countryside is very pretty and you are close to nearby Farnham which has a castle and lots of quirky shops.
