Hatchet Pond

2 miles (3 km)

This large pond in the New Forest makes for a nice, easy circular walk. The pond is located about a mile west from Beaulieu with a good sized parking area at the eastern end. There's a nice footpath to follow around the water where you will often see New Forest Ponies enjoying a drink! The pond is thelargest body of water in the New Forest so it's about a 2 mile walk all the way around. It's a great spot for a picnic with facilities that include toilets and an ice cream van in the summer months. Wildlife lovers can look out for birds on the water such as Herons and Egrets.
If you would like to continue your walking in the area you can enjoy a waterside walk along the Beaulieu River. You could also try the longer Beaulieu Heath Walk will explores the expansive heathland area surrounding the ponds.
