This picturesque New Forest village is close to some fine trails, a national nature reserve and some notable park viewpoints. There's also some quaint cottages and a nice old thatched inn for refreshments.
This walk from the village visits the Dur Hill Inclosure, Kingston Great Common National Nature Reserve and the viewpoints at Vereley Hill and Picket Plain. There's great views from the high points and lots of ponies and horses to see on the way too.
The walk starts at Thorney Hill just to the north east of the village. From here you can pick up a trail heading north west to the Dur Hill Inclosure. Follow the trails north and they will take you into the Kingston Great Common National Nature Reserve where there's lots of wildlife to look out for. Head north through the reserve and you'll pass Burnt Axon, Church Moor, Castle Hill Fort, Little Castle Common and Vereley Hill before coming to the viewpoint at Picket Plain. There's splendid views over the area from this elevated position which is over 300 feet above sea level.
