Quickly leaving the popular village behind you will disciver the secluded heathland lawns and some wonderful winding watercourses
Brockenhurst village gives great access to the very heart of the New Forest. The walk leaves the village centre on quiet footways and streets and very quickly enters the open heathland and lawns that surround the denser forest.
This walk crosses the open heathland and lawn Black Knowl to pick up the water courses of Fletchers and Highland Waters. Following alongside these water courses the walk twists its way over boggy ground and through attractive woodland towards the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. From the drive There walk heads west and then south out of the woodland to skirt past Rhinefield House Hotel towards the open heathland sections of the walk.
The walk crosses stunning heathland slowly rising up towards Holm Hill with far reaching views, interesting bogs and 360 degree views.
From the eastern edge of Wilverley Plain the walk heads east back to Brockenhurst through woodland patches and across the North Weirs open grassland to wind its way back through quiet lanes to the village centre.
This guided walk will start from the village centre opposite the Tesco Express. Brockenhurst has some great independent shops, teashops and pubs to buy supplies from or to refuel after your walk.
An alternative start will be at Bolderwood car park for half day or evening walks.
Like teenagers - Meet at the bench directly opposite Tesco express!
