From the ticket office follow the path with the lake on your left, passing under weeping willow trees. You will then come to the Liquidambar tree, whose leaves turn from fiery deep red in autumn before turning to a brilliant orange/yellow colour.
Carry on along the path until you come to a metal gate. Continue through it and bear left at the National Trust sign.
After about 10 minutes you'll come to a zigzag broad-walk on your left, which leads to the bird hide – well worth a view over the wetlands. Keep walking ahead to stay on the yellow route. Continue through the avenue of beech trees. Be careful, particularly in autumn, as tree roots cross the path.
Carry on, passing Wey Brook on the left. This marks the end of the moated boundary on the right. Here you will find bench to pause at.
Carry on the path until you find a wooden pointer for the yellow route leading off to the right. This path goes uphill to a clearing in the wood. You'll find another bench here.
As the path levels out, carry straight on. Soon you'll pass a barn on the left which is used as a wood store. You're now walking on a tarmacked path, created and used by the army in the Second World War.
Carry straight on passing another yellow route marker. You'll see the cattle field ahead – turn right when you reach the five-bar gate. There is also a bench here. Carry on down the path and you'll see the lake with the remains of the old bridge. Continue on and you'll soon arrive back where you started from.
