Beaulieu Heath is a large area of heathland in the New Forest with miles of nice trails to try. This 7 mile circular walk takes place on a series of flat paths running down towards Norleywood and Crockford Bottom.
You can start the walk from one of the car parks off the Beaulieu Road, just west of the village. There's one at the Hatchet Pond and one a little further on at Stockley Cottage. You can then pick up a number of different trails taking you around the heath, where you can see woodland, gorse and heather. Towards the southern end of the heath at Crockford Bottom there's also some pretty streams and little pools.
Other highlights on the heath include the model aircraft flying area and the lovely Hatchet Pond. The pond is a great place for wildlife with egrets, herons and possibly New Forest Ponies enjoying a drink!
To continue your walking in the area head to the village and try the Beaulieu River Walk. It will take you along the river to the delightful hamlet of Buckler's Hard.
In the north eastern section of the heath you will find the Dibden Inclosure. It's a popular section of the heath with pretty streams, ponds and great views across the forest from the high points.
