Lymington Circular Walk

7 miles (11 km)

The Hampshire town of Lymington is in a great location for exploring the New Forest, the south coast and the Isle of Wight.
This circular walk explores the countryside to the east of the town using part of the Solent Way long distance footpath. The area is home to the Pylewell Estate where you'll pass lakes, beaches, woodland and attractive countryside with fine views to the Isle of Wight.
The route runs for just under 7 miles on a series of flat paths and country lanes.
Start the walk from Lymington Town train station and head north to cross the bridge over the Lymington River. You then head east past Walhampton before turning south along Shotts Lane. This will take you down to the foreshore at Pylewell where there's a footpath running along the coast on the southern edge of the estate. There's some lovely views as you pass along the beach to Tanners Lane where you turn north. The route then turns left past Pylewell Home Farm and the pretty cricket ground on the northern edge of the estate.
The final section retraces your steps, passing Walhampton Wood before returning to the train station.
Pylewell Park has occasional open days where you can explore the beautiful pleasure grounds which include grassy paths, lakes and a wonderful selection of flowers and plants.
To continue your walking in the Lymington area try following the Solent Way west to visit the splendid Keyhaven Marshes and the fascinating Hurst Castle.
