A circular woodland walk of just less than 3 miles through a beautiful section of the New Forest called Acres Down near the tiny village of Minstead, north of Lyndhurst in Hampshire. The walk follows wide, well-made gravel tracks and all the slopes are quite gentle making it fairly easy walking. There are no gates or stiles. As part of the New Forest, Acres Down does have free roaming ponies so you're likely to come across some of these both in the car park and throughout the walk. To reach the car park you will need to drive through a ford. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.

Lovely walk through the woodland. All on gravel paths so no need for walking boots if you don't have them. Easy to follow directions. Saw lots of horses. �
