A very nice walk which we accomplished on the afternoon of arrival in Brockenhurst. A good introduction to the New Forest including broad woodland, heathland and ponies blocking the traffic.

Kingston Ramblers group used this Ramblers Route on a Friday afternoon as a taster for their New Forest weekend holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Unfortunately, having led people to believe they could obtain a drink at the Filly Inn late afternoon, it now seems it closes between lunch and evening. However, we now hear that it is under new management. Suggest checking website beforehand.

This is a very pretty walk and Brockenhurst is a lovely little New Forest town to start. Had no trouble parking where advised (on a Sunday) and the instructions to set off are very clear. There is one extremely busy road to cross and a short distance of walking along side it on the grass verge. I missed the bridleway (2) at first because I missed the farm described as Beech tree cottage. I found my way again after doubling back. The walk took me 1 hour and 40 minutes at a comfortable pace. Would definitely do this route again.
