This area of the New Forest is a popular spot for walkers. You can start your walk from the car park just off the Beaulieu Road near the village of Dibden Purlieu. From here you can pick up some really nice trails around the enclosure. The area has some pretty streams and ponds with great views across the forest from the high points. Also look out for lovely heather in the late summer and new forest ponies which like to roam around Dibden Bottom.
The area is a popular spot with dog walkers with free parking and an off lead area.
If you'd like to reach the area by bike then National Cycle Network Route 2 passes through Dibden Purlieu from Hythe.
It's easy to extend your walking across Beaulieu Heath by picking up the Solent Way long distance trail. It runs right past the Dibden car park and will take you towards Hythe in one direction and Beaulieu in the other. Here you can enjoy a lovely waterside walk along the Beaulieu River.
