Hampshire and New Forest - A Dog Walker's Guide

Hampshire and New Forest - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Vicky Fletcher
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable, as a dog owner, than getting out into the countryside with your pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 circular walks, varying in length between 1 and 6 miles, in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire and the New Forest. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are routes over wide open grassland and hills; through quiet valleys and ancient woodland; around charming villages and delightful parkland; and beside the tranquil rivers, streams and beautiful coastline of the area.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions, points of interest along the way and nearest veterinary practice.
