Explore 200 acres of beautiful gardens on this easy walk in the New Forest National Park. The gardens have miles of well laid out footpaths perfect for an afternoon stroll. In the gardens you'll find a wonderful collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, rare trees and plants. There are also tranquil lakes and ponds with pretty wooden bridges over the water. Other highlights include the Hydrangea Walk, the Rock Garden, Iris Garden, the Camellia Walk and a riverside path along the Beaulieu river. You can also catch the super Steam railway which will take you on a wonderful tour of the gardens.
If you would like to extend your walking in the area you could pick up the Solent Way and enjoy a riverside walk along the Beaulieu River. On the opposite side to the gardens there's the delightful hamlet of Buckler's Hard where there's a number of pretty Georgian cottages running down to the river and a marina.
