Our Bench - New Forest Accessible Accommodation

Wheelchair Friendly Walks

We have a variety of walks available for you to follow within the cottages on some handy print outs, but we have also put together some information for you to explore Online, so that you have consider where you would like to explore. All the walks listed here are wheelchair or pushchair friendly, or accessible by bike. We are not sure how far you like to walk... so we have included a variety.

Our Own Walks

Viewranger is a web site where you can discover your next outdoor adventure, you can post your own walks to share along with a map - the walks are then available to follow via the app store on your mobile device. We would always recommend taking a map with you if you are exploring... but we are using this to share some of our local favorites. We have created our own account on the site, so you are welcome to follow us.

  • From the Cottages
    • This is a great circular walk from the holiday cottages, idea for dog walkers as it is through farmers fields and alongside the road - there are kissing gates along the router - they open with your Radar Key, but you will need an off road wheelchair, as some of the route is farmers field - https://my.viewranger.com/route/details/MjEzMzQzMQ==
    • A there and back walk down to the Solent Nature Reserve - the route is on paement where possible, then tarmac roads, no footpath down to the Sea, where the path is compressed gravel. This enables you to circle "Eight Acre Pond" and walk back the same way. The gates on the sea wall are accessible by wheelchair. There are no stiles on the route - https://my.viewranger.com/route/details/MjIyMjM4Nw==
    • A 4.5 mile circular walk that is wheelchair friendly, head out from the cottages and this walk will take you into Lymington, down the High Street (market day on Saturday), via the train station to Lymington Town Quay - a great spot for coffee or a drink on the Quayside, onwards to Lymington Bath Road and a play park for children, home to Lymington's band stand, past a Changing Places toilet, and the Sea Water Baths (another great spot for a coffee there on the sea wall) and then round the Yacht Haven. The walk turns back inland, past some fields to Woodside Gardens where there is a lovely rose garden in summer, a children's play area and park run on Saturday's and then we return to the cottages - There are three disabled toilets along the route including the changing places one, and lots of spots to stop and enjoy. https://my.viewranger.com/route/details/MjIzNzQxMg%3D%3D
  • Within the New Forest
  • A Coastal Walk from Highcliffe Castle through the Nature Reserve down to the sea, along the promenade at Avon Beach and onto Mudeford - then returning via the same route, lots to enjoy, numerous places for coffee and a lovely sandy beach as well as the opportunity to go crabbing. https://my.viewranger.com/route/details/MjIyMjM0Ng==
